Central BBQ Restaurant Review

: Located in a giant barn of a building, Central BBQ’s Summer Avenue outpost offers a little more elbow room than the ’cue joint’s flagship Midtown store. Messy ribs and piled-high pulled pork sandwiches are the stars on the menu, but Central's fiery hot wings (marinated, smoked and then fried), homemade potato chips with blue cheese dip, and a smoked portobello mushroom sandwich keep the variety lively. The atmosphere is T-shirt casual, of course. You might even want to bring your own bib. Only beer is available to those imbibing. Desserts include cheesecake, a hot fudge brownie, or the cool and creamy peanut butter pie.
