Ya gotta go to Whip In and to Black Star Co-op. I had a good time at Red's Porch and they also have a Flying Saucer, but I had a better time at Gingerman when we were there last spring.
Have been to Whip-n, but did Black Star last year. The niece and her Welsh husband like the pub atmosphere at the Draught House, and so did we last year.
If you like BBQ brisket, Franklin's is on another level from all of the others. Perfect. Except for the long wait in line.
