LeRoy & Lewis is a barbecue truck at Cosmic Coffee that’s run by the former Freedmen’s pit master. The menu here includes a few things you wouldn’t typically find at a barbecue place, like beef cheeks, al pastor, and mac and cheese stuffed quail, along with daily specials. Don’t miss the sides, like the kale coleslaw and BBQ fried rice, or the brisket cookie for dessert. You’ll either love it or hate it - there’s no in between. But we choose love.
