Mike Leatherwood's tiny chain of breastaraunts can be summed up in three keywords: barbecue, beer and beauties. The latter are called "Daddy's Girls," and serve the former two items while clad in tight-fitting clothes. Surprise, surprise: The main clientele are men sucking down cold ones and hickory-smoked 'cue, like the three-meat house platter with two sides. Bear in mind that some meats, like the bone-in half chicken, are only available on a platter. Baby-back ribs, sandwiches (pulled pork is popular), burgers and chicken-fried steak also make appearances on the menu. And for the ladies whose men are too busy ogling the staff or the big game on the television, there are several salads. Trust us, many a "Damn!" can be heard in the dining rooms, exclamations referring to neither food nor sport.
