Allen & Son looks like a down-home barbecue joint with vinyl tile flooring, wooden tables, checkered oilcloth tablecloths and slat back chairs. Owner Keith Allen is a hunter so the walls are covered with pictures of ducks, pheasants and intermittently a stuffed large mouth bass or two.

It's no wonder the Eastern-Style barbecue tastes good. Out back are large brick barbecue pits and whole hickory logs that await the chain saw and a splitting maul. Allen does the cutting and splitting himself.

The barbecue only comes chopped. It has a tangy, rich, brown taste with smoky overtones. The cue has a peppery taste without adding sauce at the table.

The sauce at the table is a thin, reddish, vinegary, spicy blend that imparts tartness. There are bottles of Texas Pete's as well to impart just the right amount of heat.
