Delicious rivalry

No need to take sides — just enjoy the barbecue.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Bedlam Bar-B-Q
610 N.E. 50th
528-7427

What works
: The ribs and the smoked ham are some of the best.
What doesn’t work: Come at the wrong time and you’ll find a very long line and only one register.
Tip: If it’s nice, sit on the back patio. If you get sweet tea, mix it 50-50 with unsweetened, lest you get diabetes.

Don't let the heat weigh you down!


OKG7 Dining

Jenn Scott
Your indulgently flavored meal doesn’t have to be a splurge when it comes to counting calories. Besides, with the upcoming heat, fresh and lighter dishes are more appealing. If you’re adding in the greens, don’t assume that means you’ll be opting for blasé.
