Rodney Scott's BBQ
Pitmaster Rodney Scott is the master of whole hog barbecue, so stop in for a sandwich laced with his super secret vinegar sauce recipe.
Home Team BBQ
After polishing off some of Home Team BBQ’s famous dry-rubbed wings, go for a pulled pork sandwich served on a brioche bun with pickles and onions.
Ted’s Butcherblock is known for its meat selection, so of course, the shop makes a mean pork sandwich. Ted’s panini comes with smoked heritage pork, cheddar cheese slaw, and barbecue sauce pressed on a ciabatta roll.
Swig & Swine
