There's something quite inviting about this small Heights barbecue joint. Maybe it's the family atmosphere, with multiple members of the Gatlin family contributing in the kitchen. After all, the motto here is "where the secret ingredient is love."
From ribs to brisket, Cajun-style sausage to pulled pork, this place has what it takes to satisfy your 'que cravings. The sides are equally tasty, with everything from homestyle dirty rice to potato salad and baked beans. And you'll want to save a little room for the Southern-style bread pudding.
The restaurant is small--there are only a handful of tables inside and the kitchen is actually larger than the dining room. But there's a sizeable patio outside with a couple of big wooden tables for family-style dining.
