For decades Dwight Harvey held down a real, corporate-type job, cooking barbecue on the weekends. He and his son eventually turned this into a casual catering venture and, finally, a full-fledged barbecue joint. The Harveys are particular about their wood, using pecan to slow-cook brisket, ribs and the other usual suspects. Their rub lends a strong, sweet-spicy character to the meats. If there's a downside, it's the cramped space. A set of tables out front provide seating, but you must force your way to the counter to place orders, especially during the lunch rush. There's a large contingent of downtown cubicle dwellers who frequent the place. For those who want to run the south-side-after-dark risk, Off the Bone stays open late—as in 2 a.m. late—on weekends.

I am watching my weight, however, Off the Bone is the treat I give myself once a month. The food tickles my taste buds and ignite fireworks of delight. Well worth the drive from the OC area!

Some of the best BBQ in the metroplex! Ribs were fantastic! Potato salad was great! Baked beans are to die for! Now for the bad, outside dining, BUT I was informed by the staff that the patio would be enclosed and air conditioned this fall. Final note: the chocolate cake could pass for my grandmothers, God rest her soul.
