4. Bobbi Sue BBQ
Jumping on the barbecue bandwagon -- named one of this year's top food trends -- Bobbi Sue Barbecue in West Palm Beach is all about the meat. With it's hip, old-school look and Southern charm, it's our top pick for one of the city's best stops for authentic barbecue on Clematis Street, from Texas-style beef brisket and slow-roasted pulled pork to St. Louis spare ribs and smoked chicken.
Co-owner Shannon Miller, who has been smoking meats and creating his own rubs for more than two decades, grew up in barbecue country -- his home state of Texas. "That's where I learned to smoke meats and do barbecue right," Miller told Clean Plate Charlie. "After years of eating some of the best barbecue in Nashville, St. Louis, and other cities across the country, I'm confident [in bringing] a bit of that to West Palm Beach. I'm passionate about barbecue and serving it the right way."
To create authentic, "competition-level" barbecue, Miller hickory smokes all the meats "low and slow" to create a signature Bobbi Sue flavor. The house sauces -- there are four specialty versions for various types of meat -- are always served on the side so patrons can savor the taste of the barbecue first. Be sure to try the pulled pork nachos, a favorite starter (pictured above).
