I've had Selma's takeout several times now and eaten in once or twice. What it lacks in atmosphere (strictly utilitarian) Selma's makes up for in the food (strictly lip-smackin'). They cook up only what they think they can sell in a day, so they do on occasion run out of certain items, but I appreciate the concept and always find something to satisfy my hankering for good barbecue. The brisket is absolutely phenomenal and my personal favorite, although the ribs are excellent as well. I've also enjoyed the smoked chicken, and all of the sides - especially the green beans - are perfect companions to the meat. I like the choices of barbecue sauce served on the side: Memphis style in original or spicy, Carolina style in mustard based or vinegar and pepper, Texas Cowboy and Kansas City style. Selma's is a southern gem in the 'burgh, and well worth a trip.
