THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Pork Shoppe Restaurant Review

: This simple, comfortable storefront has all the anticipated barbecue joint accoutrements: wagon wheel-type décor, a rough-hewn feel, plenty ’o wood. However, it’s anything but run of the mill, starting with its pedigree. Michael Schimmel and Steven Ford, along with chef Jason Heiman (Tizi Melloul), have crafted a menu of hickory-, apple wood- and oak-smoked meats from local farms, including pulled pork, brisket and quick-smoked, sliced flank steak by the quarter or half pound. Ribs are available as baby-back or St. Louis style. Among sides, go for the baked beans flavored with burnt ends.
