Bosco's BBQ, less than 5 minutes off the Merritt Pkwy. in north New Haven (CT) has great barbecue and some excellent, traditional Southern-style sides. We had the tender ribs in a vinegar-y, tomato-based sauce, macaroni and cheese and potato salad and would recommend all.

This place is run by a family out of their front yard on Fridays and Saturdays.
To get there from the Merritt, take the route 10 exit (exit 60), and go south on 10. Rt. 10 is also known as Dixwell Ave.It's on the 600 Block of Dixwell near the corner of Brewster.

You can't miss the three giant smokers on the front lawn. There may also be a line of neighbors and local workers waiting for their orders.

Has anyone tried the barbecue stand up the street?
