For two bucks a plate, you can get a barbecued, pulled-pork sandwich; one-third rack of spice-rubbed, baby-back ribs; fried bell-pepper rings with Jamaican jerk ranch dressing; or beer-battered onion chips with roasted garlic and bell-pepper ketchup - dishes that usually run between $5 and $7.

As the menu suggests, the joint is moving in a barbecue direction. Big Fatty's envy? Staffer "Taylor," who wouldn't share his first name, claims "our barbecue is different and unique from theirs." Plus, Big Fatty's doesn't carry those hot gravy fries.
