Readers' Choice: Famous Dave's

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.

dear, lord.  if you consider ted's good bbq, then you've never had good bbq.  take a trip to kc, memphis, or raleigh and get true bbq.  if you like dried out meet covered in a sugary glaze reminiscent of general tsao's chicken sauce, then ted's is for you.  

the best option is q-fanatic in champlin.  decent stuff.


@randallbaum have you had baker's ribs in eden prairie? texas style and amazing. i will have to try q-fanatic.
