Horn Barbecue

At this point, you’ve either heard stories about how your neighbor’s favorite Safeway cashier waited hours for Horn Barbecue’s gargantuan beef rib, or you’ve waited on the sidewalk yourself, camping chair and all. The West Oakland spot is barbecue royalty. Beautifully smoked meats reign supreme, and their wide-open patio with picnic tables and massive smokers is always filled with folks rolling up their sleeves and diving into piles of saucy ribs. The menu of Central Texas-style barbecue covers everything from unbelievably juicy pulled pork and sliced-to-order brisket to hot links longer than most adult hands. Grab a book, that fold-out chair (or a chatty friend), and hop in line.
