In the location of the old Harold’s Barbecue on Hwy 54 in Jonesboro is a different BBQ venture, Pit Boss. With an original location in Hapeville, their menu is expansive, including smoked wings, turkey, burgers, and sides like fried green beans in addition to mac ‘n cheese and collards. It’s pretty good food.
We got the babyback ribs, mac ‘n cheese, collard greens, stew and these loaded fries (can’t find the name on the online menu). The ribs had a ton of flavor and were pretty tender, though I’ve had juicier. The collards were cooked just right, and the mac ‘n cheese was addictive. Cheesy, not goopy.
I’m not a big stew person, and theirs is of the potato variety, so I didn’t even try it. The loaded fries were kind of amazing, covered in cheese and chopped pork, and the sweet sauce on the table.
Three cheers for the South Side getting some great grub!
