With a specialty of nothing more than good old Southern cooking, the Hut is one of Somerville’s best restaurants. Whether you like a little bit of BBQ, some spicy food or even a mean salad, this restaurant has you covered. The crowd favorite here is definitely the pulled pork sandwich, which just the right amount of BBQ sauce (unlike other places). However, if you’re looking for something light, their salad bar is perfect. The ambiance here is nothing special, although it definitely has an old-school feel to it. That and the amazing waitstaff make this restaurant a cozy little diner.
In a city like Memphis, expect tons of great BBQ food, and the Barbecue Store is no exception. While the Hut specializes is pulled pork and lighter fare, you go to the Barbecue Store for some great ribs. Unlike other places in town, the ribs have the perfect amount of BBQ sauce. But at any rate, the pulled pork here is just as great. Thanks to the amazing coleslaw you can order it with, this sandwich will wow you. The sides here are really good too, especially the baked beans. While the ambiance is nothing over the top, the waitstaff and highly involved owner is what makes this place.
While it isn’t located in Somerville proper, Sling Shot Charlie’s is worth the trip out to Arlington. Straying away from the BBQ fare, Sling Shot Charlie’s cooks some great homestyle food.

Thanks to their olive walls and the wall art the fills the walls, this place is certainly interesting to say the least.
A great slice of pizza can be a well deserved change of pace. And at Milano’s there’s nothing holding you back from that goal. With the freshest pizza sauce in Tennessee and some of the crunchiest pizza crust you could ask for, one bite of this pizza and you’ll be flooded with images of Italy. But of course, there’s no shortage of BBQ food here. Pulled pork, hot links and chicken wings make up this part of the menu. The ambiance here is surprisingly upscale, thanks to their comfortable booth setting and the beautiful artwork and sculptures that fill the restaurant.
In all honesty, while Milano’s serves some great chicken wings, they’re no match for the wings you’ll find at King of Wings. The wings here are huge and packed with flavor.
