18th & Vine Barbeque
This is no ordinary barbecue spot. For starters, it has Uptown decor, with nice booths and table service. Second, its stated focus is Kansas City-style barbecue, which mostly means that they do burnt ends. Third, its menu also includes creations from former Bijoux chef Scott Gottlich. Aside from the perennial appeal of barbecue, they do an excellent rendition of fried okra with whole battered pods.
