Andy Nelson's Barbecue Restaurant & Catering
11007 York Rd
Cockeysville, MD 21030
Former Colts safety Andy Nelson started making BBQ for the Cockeysville neighborhoods after retiring from the NFL, and eventually opened this 'cue joint in a former gas station. If you're stopping by his counter-serve spot on your lunch hour, expect long lines of Marylanders anxiously waiting to pour Andy Nelson's house-made Bama Sauce onto his famed pulled pork sandwiches with slaw and beans on the side. It gets even better in the summer, when, about twice a month, bands play concerts in the garage area where the fueling station used to be for throngs of people with a beer in one hand and a sandwich in the other.
