Johnny T’s BBQ

The Pig in a Prom Dress sandwich with a warm Carolina vinegar sauce is stellar, and for dessert, a big-as-my-toddler's-face Butterfinger and chocolate chip cookies. They're on the crunchy side, and they taste like butter and brown sugar had a baby.
The chicken still rocks the yard, but with those ribs as an opener, you can't lose.

Your waitress may resemble a runaway who's lost her clothing, but don't call the cops – just order the ribs.
