Been going to Mr. Eli's for years. Consistent excellent bbq. Fast service. No eat-in space, save for a few picnic tables scattered around. But don't let that stop you. Grab a sandwich or dinner to go and take it home, where you can eat unapoligetically...More

Only open on Fri and Sat for a few hours each day. Stopped by and grabbed some rubs and a pork sandwich, both great! Friendly service and fast. The line is long at peak hours so prepare to wait. But it IS worth it.

great value for money, everything in to go boxes to eat outdoors on the picnic benches next to their shop. When they've sold out the place closes. Open Friday and Saturday starting at lunchtime.

This place is legendary. Eli put it on the map, and has passed away. His family now runs it and they are only open on Friday and Saturday. But, the way they prepare their food, the smoking begins days earlier. This place is legendary in...More
