There is something heartwarming about watching father and son attempt to knife-and-fork their way through a nearly 5-pound barbecue sandwich. That monster, the Ultimate Destroyer, makes an eye-catching menu item that lures people to Papa Bob's Bar-B-Que. But the restaurant's friendliness is what keeps people coming back. With a 20-foot red counter lined with black-and-chrome stools, the place has the feeling of an old family diner. And the service matches the décor. Owner Bob Caviar is likely to take a break from the smoker in back to introduce himself to your table. Smoked on hickory wood, the tender burnt ends sing with a bit of spicy habañero sauce. And when it comes to sides, the horseradish pickle chips bring the sweet heat. This is one place where barbecue might just be good for your heart.
