“HMMM, BBQ in El Salvador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is some legit good BBQ. The brisket literally melts in your mouth. You can't go wrong with the pulled pork, the turkey, or the ribs either. I have tried everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. Stylish atmosphere and plates mostly placed under $10 with heaps of food and delicious sides.

I've met the head chef and the owners a few times and these guys did a pilgrimage throughout the South to make sure they got the recipes right then went back and did it again. Some stuff has a slight Salvadoran twist, but it works. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

“Delicious, Authentic BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

A great restaurant for some good, old fashioned BBQ. They have a smoker and the entrees and sides are delicious. It's a great casual eatery and very reasonably priced. The brisket is by far our favorite but it is all good. Prices are also very reasonable.

“Smokin' Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

The intersection of smoke and meat is a delicious place, and Humo is its name. Offering several types of regional barbecue, Humo serves many tasty treats in a casual but stylish setting. I am not a southern boy, and do not know the nuances of all the regional barbecue styles. To me it’s all good food, and I am happy to have someone else tend the smoker or slow cooker so that I can enjoy the wonderful stuff. I had the platos with dos carnes,(pulled pork and brisket) and French fries for a side. The meat was fall-apart tender and rich with smokey flavor. The sweet potato fries were uniquely the best I have ever had. The BBQ sauces were on the side, hot or not. Others had ribs, which were rub-it-in-your-hair good, and mac and cheese, which was tasty, but not enough. There is also turkey (pavo) and some interesting sandwiches, as well as more sides. I’ll report back on them soon. Did I mention that Humo is “smoke” in Spanish? Deliciously appropriate!!
