AJ's Pit Bar-B-Q
From square cut, thin tavern-style Chicago pies served at Grabowski’s to Budlong’s Nashville hot chicken, restaurateur Jared Leonard has brought a lot of flavor to the Mile High. At his BBQ joint across from the Evans light rail station, meats are smoked central-Texas style over whole logs of Texas post oak. “They have two specials that I love, their pastrami and their beef ribs,” says Miller—if you catch those on the menu, they’re a must. And did we mention their custard-filled cornbread?
