Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review

: Identical twins Jonathan and Justin Fox are among the city's leaders in the barbecue genre. Renovated following a near disaster caused by a falling old oak, the restaurant is somewhat expanded. But not to worry: there's still outdoor dining at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. A separate structure holds the smoker. Its enticing aromas waft over the patio and parking lot as it works its magic. Innovative nibbles include fried ribs, tender morsels of smoked baby-backs dipped in a light batter and deep-fried, leaving them moist and succulent; the rarely seen white barbecue sauce comes with an order, which holds three of these delights. With a moderately spicy rub, meaty smoked St. Louis-style ribs have the proper slightly pink color at the bone --- the so-called "smoke ring" --- that suggests their having been cooked over wood. Also pink from proper smoking is the beautifully seasoned smoked chicken that comes with white barbecue sauce. On Fridays, smoked beef short ribs are added to the line-up. For dessert, there's chocolate pecan pie or homemade banana pudding. This is one ’cue joint that offers decent wines along with good beer choices. Get there early or prepare to wait.
