Ashley's Bar-B-Que

If anyone has a claim to the BBQ throne, it’s Ashley’s. Only about a mile from Speed Queen, it serves very similar ‘que, but you can get more unusual things here like snout and goat. Ribs reign supreme though, and are tender, but don’t fall off the bone (a sign of overcooking). Baked beans here have bits of smoked meat floating around in them, just to remind you that vegetarians are not going to like this place.
