The mesquite-smoked brisket and pork are among the best in the city.
The mashed potato salad is flecked with pickle relish, and the "chili
beans" are loaded with meat and spices. But it's the warm atmosphere
that makes Pierson & Company unique. You seldom run into barbecue men
as talkative as Clarence Pierson. It's easy to stick your head in the
window of his little kitchen and strike up a conversation while he
slices your meat. Order some extra to take home.
