By that time, their weekly barbecue at another local eatery had attracted something of a cult following. Expect to wait for a table on weekends, as the Fox Brothers' faithful line up for pulled pork and beef ribs. The Southern-style barbecue offerings also include beef brisket, chicken and smoked wings. Fans of Brunswick stew can try the Tomminator for an appetizer: tater tots smothered in Brunswick stew and grated cheese. As for desserts, the delectable banana pudding is a favorite. - Beth Dolgner
