L C’s Bar-B-Q
Review by: Michael Stern
LC’s is a no-frills BBQ parlor where dishware and utensils are disposable. A television set is always on in one corner of the room and a few dusty game-animal trophies adorn the walls. Place your order and pay for it at the counter, where you have a view (and sniff) of the pit, and it will be delivered to your table posthaste.
It is a good thing that sandwiches come in trays, because they are so messy that no flat plate could contain them. You get a heap of sauce-sopped meat piled onto a puny slice of white bread and the meat is topped with another slice. The bread underneath has disintegrated before it arrives at your table, so this sandwich cannot be lifted by hand. You either use plastic utensils or pick at it with fingers. (All tables are outfitted with rolls of paper towels.)
Beef, ham, turkey, pork, sausage, and ribs are all pit-cooked; and among the “specialty meats” listed on the menu is burnt ends. These are crisp, chewy, extra-luscious nuggets of meat cut from the outside edges of smoked brisket. Many pieces are laced with an obscenely delicious amount of fat; there are chewy pieces and crunchy pieces; and while the ends might be dry all by themselves, LC’s excellent sauce makes them sing.
