Best Barbecue - 2002
With an enormous back patio and a diverse crowd, this "dive bar" has all the ingredients for a family picnic, but with family you would actually want to spend time around. The motto here is "Warm Beer, Cold Women, and Clean Rooms Cheap." Don't be fooled, though, the 25 beers on tap are the perfect temperature to complement the barbecued chicken, ribs, coleslaw, and corn bread. Grab a seat on the patio and wait for the grill master to yell your name through the bullhorn. In addition to barbecue, pool, darts, and drinks, Zeitgeist also boasts a small hotel just up the stairs, with rooms for $40 a night. Might be just what you need after sharing beers and ribs with Mr. or Ms. Right Now.
