Is there such a thing?
While up in North Jersey cleaning out my grandfather's house this weekeend (he's moved to Florida), I finally got to try Burnett Barbecue, a Portuguese chicken and ribs place on Burnett Avenue in Union that we'd often driven by. Never got to visit before because it's not the sort of thing my grandfather would have enjoyed (noisy, crowded, three or four languages in the air, "weird" food). It turned out to be one of the bet chowhound experiences I've ever had.
Fantastic chicken and ribs barbecued over an open pit. Savory, but not spicy. Tasty veggies and boiled potaoes. And delicious sausage as an appetizer. Plus, a nice, fruity Brazillian soda.
So, is there a place like this in Baltimore, or maybe sort of close by in the DC area?
