Drive past this Fort Lauderdale roadside log cabin at lunch or dinnertime and you'll understand exactly why lines stretch out the door. The aroma of meat grilling over red oak and hickory is hard to resist, so why bother? Just find a spot in the tiny, crowded lot, order your ribs, beef, or chicken at the counter, and keep a sharp eye out for a seat - one is hard to come by. The sauce recipe, developed by the owners from old family recipes, is a thick, tasty blend of molasses, honey, and a variety of secret ingredients. Side dishes, from collard greens to macaroni and cheese, are uniformly excellent and artery-clogging (try the baked beans for a slightly more-healthful alternative). Don't miss Tom Jenkins' sweet potato pie for dessert.
