In January we discovered two new (to us) places to eat.  Of course they were both barbeque and each deserve a re-visit.  We tried out 4 Rivers Smokehouse on Baymeadows on the recommendations of some friends.  Great recommendations!

We had the Messy Pig


and another delicious custom pulled pork sandwich pilled on cheese grits.


Both were yummy and both are calling us back for repeat engagements.


Woodpecker’s Backyard BBQ was one of those “stumbled upon” places.  You know the drill, it’s lunch time, you’re going from here to there and you see an eating place covered up in cars and trucks.


That says, STOP give me a try!  We stopped, we tried it and we loved it.  Not your normal fare.  “We don’t have fries, we aren’t a hamburger joint.” That was what we heard over and over as people walked in and ordered for the first time.  What they did have was a wide range of other sides that more than made up for the missing fries, and most options had a datil option.  Really wish this place was closer to us.
