Bill Spoon's Barbecue Restaurant Review: Yellow checked tablecloths and cozy wood paneling offer a sense of home, and Steve Spoon, Jr., makes guests feel like part of the family. Focused entirely on vinegar and pepper, omitting tomato entirely, Bill Spoon's barbecue sauce is true Eastern Carolina style. This simple combination enhances the flavor of the pork without overpowering it. Popular sides include mustard slaw, baked beans, barbecue potatoes, hush puppies --- de rigueur in North Carolina with barbecue --- and Brunswick stew. If you can handle dessert, go for the creamy banana pudding made with fresh chunks of ripe bananas and vanilla wafers. As no alcohol is offered, sweet tea is your quaff of choice.
