From an east-sider: Tom's Elite is good stuff, including the sides. D's Q is certainly missed, but only their BBQ, their sides were pretty unremarkable.
I've never been to Jimmy Carl's for a comparison.
Cato and Bailey's BBQ is not their best offering, but love that place.
never been to Drifter's, but it seems like more of a "restaurant concept" than a joint opened by a passionate BBQ'er.
The last time I went to Acorn was years ago, but I do remember it being particularly expensive-dinner for 2 with a moderate bottle of wine was well over $100. It was good, but not that good. there are lots more better priced restaurants in town.
this is not at all comprable, but we live down the street from Silly Goose and they make some damn good sandwiches with sides for $10.
It is always a challenge to find Ladyfingers or canned coconut milk.
also, I can only stick with a few grocery stores because I get very overwhelmed if I don't know the layout of a particular one.
also, finding organic pre-packaged food. Kroger in E. Nash has most of the stuff in its own section, but some items (like canned beans) with the Bush's. Harris Teeter inter-mixes all of the organic stuff with conventional-which makes more sense to me, unless you've memorized everything they carry in the separate section.
