THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tony Morrow's Real Pit BBQ Restaurant Review

: Serving as pit master at Tony Morrow’s barbecue joint is his son, DeVaughn, albeit under pop's watchful eye, of course. The décor is somewhat fancier than that of a typical ’cue place, with a polished bar serving beer, minimal wine and spirits. The well-seasoned ribs display the classic pink ring that proves they've been cooked slowly over wood. Sauces are served on the side, in the correct manner. In addition to first rate mac 'n' cheese, there’s Brunswick stew, chunky and full of flavor, although purists may have a quarrel with the inclusion of lima beans. Slaw is rather generic. For dessert, go for the fried pies. Sweet tea is just that, so consider a "half and half" of sweet and unsweetened tea.
