First established in 1968 by its namesake — a golfer, in case that name confounds you — Ted Cook's 19th Hole BBQ is an unassuming hole-in-the-wall takeout spot near the 38th Street light rail station that has changed hands just a couple times during its 45-year run, remaining a family- and friend-owned mainstay of south Minneapolis, where neighborhood residents can always count on finding delicious cherry- and hickory-wood pit-smoked and sauced-up pork, beef, and chicken, tangy coleslaw, a soulful sweet potato pie, and a sumptuous helping of JoJos made oh-so-tender by sauce and meat drippings. And does Ted Cook's serve sandwich bread on the side — slice of white, slice of wheat? You know it.
