CnD Barbecue Grille in Wakefield

I just noticed this place, on Vernon Street where it meets Water Street today and decided to pick up some dinner.

It's a tiny place, takeout only. The owners are very friendly, especially Dana who seemed to be running the kitchen. Prices are a bit high (1 pint of pulled pork was $10.95, a pint of sausage cornbread stuffing was $7.95) but I don't mind paying a bit more for good quality food, especially BBQ which is so lacking in this area.

The pulled pork cames with a choice of Spicy BBQ sauce or Honey BBQ sauce, which comes on the side. The pork is very nice, moist and smoky and just fine without a sauce, IMO. However the Spicy BBQ sauce did work really well. I wish they'd also offer a vinegar sauce for a more North Carolina taste.

The Sausage Cornbread Stuffing was also very nice. It could have used more sausage, or perhaps more porky tasting sausage, and I think at that price I probably won't order it again soon, although I'll definitely be back for more pulled pork and to try the ribs and fried chicken. They offer a number of other sides as well, including macaroni and cheese. I don't think I saw a website mentioned on their takeout menu. I believe they are open Tuesday-Saturday, perhaps Sunday as well. It's on the menu and I'll post it later when I have that in hand.
