Take Out: Good luck finding McCarters BBQ, there's no sign to mark the spot, just a smoke signal. In fact, you might think you are pulling up to someone's home. McCarters has been dishing up plates of delicious BBQ, a couple blocks east of downtown proper, (on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Cranford Street) for more than twenty years. Two giant smokers sit on the dirt lawn and Willie sits inside the screen porch, manning the fort, even on the hottest summer days. The smokers get fired up early in the morning, loaded with ribs, chicken and such. A slab of ribs is not only mouthwatering but one of the best deals in town, in the twenty-dollar range. Don't expect any fancy sides, do expect to carry that smoky BBQ smell in your clothes but you wont even notice after that first bite.
