This charming, off-the-beaten-path venue is charming and rustic, evocative of some diamond-in-the-rough surprise you'd stumble upon while road tripping. Its food is surprising, too. Sandwiches, salads, scrumptious starters and a whole lotta barbecue. A host of offerings showcase piles of YDE's signature pulled pork, including the Fire Pig (a wrap with apple wood-smoked bacon, gouda, fried onions and sriracha) and the Rufus (pork topped with thick-cut Brie, cherry ring peppers and topped with raspberry melba sauce). Ribs are available by the half-rack, as well. And YDE's house slaw is a sweet, tangy treat. Live music in the restaurant's outdoor beer garden adds ear candy to the menu.
Best Because: Unique, cozy, off-the-path. Good comfort food in indoor/outdoor digs that are herbivore-, carnivore- and doggie-friendly.
Best for Homestyle Because: Pulled pork, piled high, in a multitude of alluring combos is No. 1. YDE's unique, friendly setting and vibe is No. 2.
