WHY When the ‘cue zealots start debating who does it best, Robin’s usually ranks among the finest.
WHAT There’s Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap, a kitschy Americana décor and a swell lineup of side dishes (blueberry cornbread, pecan cole slaw) but those are just supporting players to the deservedly popular meats, smoked over mesquite and hickory and appropriately tender and full of flavor. There are some good deals, too, including Sunday ‘family feasts’ and half-price kids’ dishes on Tuesday and Sunday.
WHO Convivial families.
