Year In Review: June

Meme Fried Chicken Lunch

Dish of the Month

Pulled pork sandwich at Bebe’s Barbecue

Coates so overloads the soft roll, you can’t help having visions of the rusty red stains awaiting your clothes. But the bun, it’s like a sponge for the vinegar-tipped Lexington, Carolina-style sauce, a Memory Foam mattress for the 16-hour smoked pork shoulder, contouring to the heap of unctuous tatters.
