Review and Gallery: C.T.'s Real Deal BBQ

In this week's issue of the Observer, Dave gets his fill of southern surf 'n' turf at C.T.'s Real Deal BBQ, where bail bondsman-turned-restaurateur Corey Toney's scrap with the city over renovations seems like small news next to the fried catfish and hickory-smoked meats.

For more extreme meat close-ups, with sides included, check out this week's Dish slideshow with photos by Sara Kerens.
