I just had a delicious lunch at McClure’s Barbecue, which is a Monday-Friday pop-up lunch spot that is operating in the Dante’s Kitchen space. The home-style servings allowed us to try all of Neil’s meats and sides. The chicken was moist, with a wonderful rich smoked flavor. I also loved the fall off the bone tang of the pork ribs and the brisket and pulled pork. What made this fun was the large array of regional BBQ sauces that were available on the tables. Neil seems to be doing an excellent job of researching the different sauces. His Pork & Pork & Beans side was also aptly named. It was some of the most savory and meaty beans that I have experienced.
I am thrilled at the many new pop-up options in town and think this one is worth supporting. For people looking for a flavorful and reasonably priced lunch, this is a great option. It all costs about $15, including the meats, side dishes, and beer/beverages.
