If you're meeting someone here, whoever arrives first should get in line at the counter and whoever's next should save a table or some bar stools. Hometown's brisket and baby back ribs are fantastic, especially when drenched in the house's signature sticky, caramel-y sauce, but it can take a while to get to the front of the line. (Bring something to occupy the kids in case they get squirmy.) The double dining halls—wood detailed and American-flag decorated—are roomy, with a bar in each featuring a strong beer list and 50 bourbons, ryes and whiskeys. The front area is more of a saloon, appointed with neon beer signs and a small stage where bluegrass, roots and country acts perform on weekends.
