Went to the newly opened Southport Smokehouse on their fourth day. We haven't had a smokehouse here since the Village BBQ closed in the same location nearly 15 years ago. Those wonderful smokers have been sitting idle all that time while business after business has come and gone on this spot. So nice to have a dedicated BBQ restaurant again! The service was excellent. Great system : people behind the counter to take your order, assemble it and check you out - all within just a couple of minutes. I had the
chopped beef brisket on a bun,baked beans, red slaw (vinegar-no mayo) and banana pudding for dessert. Everything is site prepared and just delicious. I would have liked a bit more brisket on the bun, but the flavor and sauce were very good. As these folks get comfortable, a few additions to the very limited menu such as corn on the cob, collard greens and corn bread would make this place perfect. Not inexpensive (I paid $13.00 plus tax for lunch) but the quality of the food was superb.
