BEST WORKDAY LUNCH THAT FELT LIKE A WEEKEND: Deuces BBQ

BEST WORKDAY LUNCH THAT FELT LIKE A WEEKEND

This former Midtown smokery is currently on hiatus while looking for a new location, which sucks, because stopping by its old digs for an hour on a weekday for some ’cue and a couple of beers was like a mini-vacation. The friendly service, the laid-back neighborhood vibe, the food so good it qualified as a special reward for busting one’s ass all morning — it all came together to create a uniquely stress-relieving experience. I hope they can keep that going in their new spot. facebook.com/deucesbbq. —Scott Harrell
