2024 Best Barbecue

Sweet Cheeks Q

You’d be forgiven for making a meal solely of giant, fluffy biscuits with honey butter and a selection or two from Sweet Cheeks’ lengthy bourbon and whiskey list. But then you’d miss the expertly smoked meats, from the sliced brisket to the heritage-breed pulled pork, at chef Tiffani Faison’s beloved barbecue outpost. Bring the family (kids love it here!) and try it all at this always-consistent destination in an ever-changing neighborhood.
