Norfolk restaurant makes Travel + Leisure’s list of best places to get barbecue in the U.S.

NORFOLK, Va. – Our barbecue is no joke!

Sam’s Texas Sub Shop made the top 10 of Travel + Leisure’s list of 25 best places to get barbecue in the U.S.

Southerners know barbecue better than anyone else, and it’s nice to see a local joint be acknowledged as one of the best to do it. To compile the list, the magazine used the popular, crowd-sourced food review website Yelp, basing the rankings on the site’s algorithm that looks at both the number of reviews and the star rating given to each restaurant.

Several North and South Carolina spots also made the list thanks to that famous Carolina barbecue.
