    Lunch Reccomendations?

    OK, I'm on the west edge of downton and only have a half an hour. Been to Uncle Wendells and it's hard to get back in time and not in the mood for Palmers., Jimmy Johns, Taco Johns or Sarpinnos. Any suggestions

    Sorry thought I put this is off topic

    Smokey D's BBQ at 1300 Locust. The best. They actually just won the pitmasters competition on A&E I think was the channel.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    They sure did! Although the owner Shad Kirton goes by "A Boy & His BBQ" when he is in competitions. I caught onto this show late into it but the final episode was cool. Five teams were left, another Iowa guy was in it too Moe Cason, Ponderosa BBQ. They started cooking a whole hog but into the challenge they found out in order to even get in the top 3 with their hog they had to win a chicken challenge first. Chicken apparently is not Shad's strong point but he got 1st in that and wound up beating the world champion in whole hog for the overall champ.

    Re: Lunch Reccomendations?

    Smokey D's rocks! I love the burnt ends.

    If anyone goes to the location behind the Harley Barn off of NW Second, try the "BigN's Gin" from the bar, it's my new favorite drink.

    This. South Union and Smokey D's are both great choices.

    Manhattan Deli, FTW.

    He means B&B Deli, and he's dead on. Great stuff. But a bit of a pain to reach from the West side of downtown.
