The South Street Smokehouse is a nice barbeque joint which I believe is locally owned and operated. It’s not too fancy — what with the paper towel dispensers instead of napkins, bench seating, baskets, and plastic cutlery; but that’s perfect for a smokehouse. It’s a short order operation where you place your order and pay at the counter, get your drink from the fountain, and wait for your ticket number to be called. It’s one room with several tables and a couple of televisions around the joint. The sandwiches are excellent. Today, I had a Carolina pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw on top. When I make it at home, it’s just o.k.; but this one was outstanding. The slaw mixed with the pork in just the right way. This was a departure from my normal order which is a Kansas City brisket: a brisket sandwich with provolone cheese and an onion ring. I definitely recommend this place if you’re up for some barbecue.
