Stubb's Bar-B-Q Restaurant Review: Out-of-towners may recognize the smiling face of Christopher B. Stubblefield from the labels of his barbecue sauce stocked in supermarkets nationwide. In the Korean War, "Stubb" proved he could cook as well as shoot, earning two Purple Hearts and praise from fellow soldiers for cooking chili on a tank's tailpipe. Now Stubb's Bar-B-Q offers bountiful plates to the tune of live music from local and national acts. Barbecue staples (ribs, chicken and brisket) and sides (potato salad, pinto beans, fried green tomatoes) require a forest's worth of napkins, which you may obtain from the low-key servers that double as bouncers. The Sunday gospel brunch with fried catfish and a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar is guaranteed to elicit a resounding hymn of praise, though you’ll definitely need reservations to guarantee a seat.
