CnD’s Barbeque Grille gives a good name to holes in the wall: The tiny, cheerful storefront turns out excellent takeout-only barbecue and sides. The pulled pork is prime: “moist and smoky,” says Chris VR. The ribs are also sheer goodness, with a “vinegar sauce which does not at all overpower the meat,” says drbangha.

Also on the menu: chicken, sandwiches (including hot pork sausage), and, on weekends, potato salad and cornbread stuffing with sausage that Chris VR says is “very nice” if a bit pricey at $8 a pint. The pulled pork is $10.95 for a pint. Meal combos are available, with ’cue and sides like mac ’n’ cheese, cornbread, collards, and baked beans.

The place is owned by a friendly husband-and-wife team named Charlotte and Dana, the “C” and “D” for whom the restaurant is named.
