Mom's Bar-B-Que House Restaurant Review

: Décor may leave something to be desired, but no one cares, because Mom’s has served some of the city’s best barbecue and soul food for more than 25 years. The space features a worn sign, tan walls with signed headshots, and a seriously meaty menu. Beef and pork ribs, chicken, hot links and rib tips will render you blind to your surroundings. They also sell juicy fried chicken with thin, crispy skins. Among the sides, we like the mac ‘n’ cheese, collard greens, homemade potato salad, cooked-forever baked beans, and yams seasoned with nutmeg and cinnamon. Portions are huge. For dessert, don’t miss the pineapple-coconut cake or famed peach cobbler, a cooling antidote to Mom’s combustible barbecue sauce. Sorry, no alcohol. Takeout specials include large slabs of ribs and barbecued chickens.
