20 Best Barbecue Restaurants in America >
We're proud to announce the winners of LocalEats' first annual Best Barbecue Restaurants in America. Identifying the nominees and selecting the winners was a big task, and our fingers are still sticky - but, we're excited to present the winners to all our readers.
The selections represent a variety of styles and regions, from Kansas City to Memphis, Carolina to Texas, both 'wet' and 'dry, and 'whole-hog'. But, simply selecting representatives of different styles and regions was not our goal - the goal was simply to identify the very best barbecue in the country, and we feel this list is an accurate (and incredibly tasty) representation. Let's get started - here are the 20 winning restaurants, listed alphabetically.
