Best Barbecue

Brushfire BBQ Co.

If you enter a restaurant and find yourself surrounded by flames (painted on the walls) and framed photographs of brushfires, you've entered Ben and Jared's homegrown barbecue restaurant. Here, you will find barbecued meats made savory with six original sauces. Beyond the meats, much attention is given to the flavorful side dishes—both the corn-on-the-cob and the cornbread hit the grill before they hit your basket. Even the baked beans are a delight. Eat in or take out your lunch or dinner; call ahead if you're on the go.
