Peggy Sue BBQ may reside in tony Snider Plaza, but it’s definitely more down-home than Uptown. The waitresses will probably call you “honey,” and you might even spot one of the city’s ladies-who-lunch with barbecue sauce on her face (gasp!). Open since 1989, the decor hasn’t changed a bit, with vinyl tablecloths and plenty of Texas shtick like horseshoes and lone stars. The brisket is of the lean variety, and there are also dry-rubbed ribs, pulled pork, sausage and smoked turkey breast and chicken. The house barbecue sauce comes in both spicy and mild incarnations; sides of green beans and corn may come from a can, but onion rings are scratch-made and sweet-potato tots are standouts. There are also Frito pie, chicken-fried steak and a salad bar, but whatever you do, save room for a “famous” fried pie in flavors like chocolate, apricot or apple. Pro tip: Barbecue sandwiches are extra delicious when ordered on Empire Bakery’s jalapeño cheese bread.
