'Cue Barbecue Restaurant Review

: Paul Doster, pitmaster and co-owner of 'Cue Barbecue with his wife Doreen, is a former owner of The Swallow at the Hollow and an alum of numerous area restaurants. He’s also a fan of fresh, and so only seasonal vegetables are served here. Doster braises his ribs, without using any pre-smoking marinades or even salting the meat, then finishes them off over a wood-fired grill. You do notice the absence of salt, but the meat retains a good flavor. The vinegar-based dressing on the coleslaw makes it taste good on top of the pork sliders, Carolina-style, if that’s how you like your ’cue. Everything served in the restaurant---except for the ice cream for the cobblers and the ketchup---is made from scratch, right down to the bread and the pickles. So there’s substance to that Texas toast you get with your ribs. Did we say cobbler for dessert? Fresh fruit cobblers are among the items made from locally grown raw materials, too, whenever possible. Good beer is the quaff of choice, and there are a few decent (although they could be better) wines. Also located at 1370 Buford Hwy., Cumming, 770-888-1048.
