Best Barbecue (Take Out & Delivery) 

Big Nate's Barbecue

This efficient, bare-bones pit stop (there are a few tables, but they're there for convenience only) will get you in and out quickly, loaded up with Memphis- and Carolina-style pork ribs, chicken, links, brisket, and pulled pork, as well as cornbread muffins, country beans, cole slaw, potato salad, Nate's own mean greens, and sweet potato pie. For additional convenience, there's an adjacent free parking lot, online ordering (from a ridiculously over-complicated Web site, alas), and Big Nate's delivers! While you wait for your order to be packed up, you can peruse the framed photos and memorabilia of owner and NBA great Nate Thurmond's career with the Warriors as one of the best centers ever. He grew to be 6 feet 11 chowing down on Southern 'cue, and had to open his own place to enjoy the food of his youth in his new hometown.
