"Keep it simple, stupid" is one of life's more important adages, especially when you consider the multitude of factors that can influence one's behavior, and the myriad other idioms that can be appli -- damnit! For BBQ that's kept simple, smart guy, check out Spoon.
Billed as "uncomplicated BBQ", Spoon's now rolling your way while smoking meats over hickory nut shells, and drawing culinary inspiration from a random melange that includes "Southern Illinois hog and cattle farms, coal mines, and roadside pits that open up without permits", so suck it, RMV.
Juicy handhelds include the white sauce-slathered Walter chicken sandwich (w/ spicy fried dill pickles), a classic pulled pork on a Kaiser (topped with Illinois vinegar slaw), and dual patties covered w/ American & Thousand Island in the Nugget's Double Burger, so presumably they're taking advantage of Boston's love for patties.
Plates run from a quarter- or half-rack of slow-smoked pork ribs (w/ burnt ends baked beans and braised collard greens), to two double-decker-style chicken tacos w/ slaw and refried beans, to an onion ring-accompanied pork/ chicken bowl, aka a two-hand touch championship game where Deion Sanders plays every position.
And to mix things up, Spoon slings a "Cajun Friday Fish Special" (such as rice & beans alongside a spicy haddock), and they'd love to cater your next office function, just in case you don't think a certain age-old adage should apply to dull, repetitive office lunches.
