Craig's

Rt. 70, DeValls Bluff, AR - (501) 998-2616
"Mild, medium, or hot?" you will be asked when you place an order at this roadside smoke house. Even the mild stuff packs a pleasant punch; medium is very spicy; hot is diabolical. This is superior Q. Stuffed into the bun atop the pork is cool coleslaw, providing a truly sensational balance.

Supersauced ribs are a royal mess, and a joy to eat if you like worrying every single scrap of pork off the bone. In the background are beans, slaw, and pickles.

Whether you dine in or take out, your barbecue sandwich will come ready-wrapped -- a necessity because of the drippy sauce in which pork is cossetted.

A southern classic: hot-sauced pork barbecue on a bun with cool cole slaw. It is presented wrapped in wax paper, and is a delightful, delicious mess to eat.

Craig's serves its barbecue sandwiches Memphis-style: slaw is piled into the bun along with sauced pulled pork.

If Craig's ever decides to spiff up its dining area, it is going to be in trouble when it comes to wall paneling. I suspect that this pattern has become interior-decor history.

Craig's hasn't changed at all since we found it on a very early Roadfood trip back in the 1980s.

Craig's won't win a restaurant beauty contest, but the food it serves is beautiful indeed.
