One thing I've noticed about barbecue restaurants

The voting ends at 6:00P.M. in our King of the Cue – Eastern Style Barbecue Poll. Thanks for the bounty of ballots. Monday we’ll switch gears and vote for the Best of the West - Lexington style barbecue. Then we’ll move on to another topic.

One thing I’ve noticed about barbecue restaurants is that many of the good ones are less than fancy on the outside. B’s in Greenville is a good example. Patrons absolutely love this place even though the exterior looks more like a barber shop out of Mayberry. Kent Craig wrote a fine review about B’s noting that it doesn’t have a business phone number and when the barbecue runs out for the day the restaurant closes. Valonda Calloway found out the hard way several years ago arriving a little late for lunch.

B’s also has the distinction of being located on B’s Barbecue Road. That’s pretty cool.

How many of you have been to B’s and what were your experiences?
