Brisket, St. Louis Ribs, Corned Beef, Pulled Pork, Pastrami 

The brisket was good and I found the St. Louis ribs be very tasty. The restaurant also carries baby back ribs. The St. Louis variation tends to have a higher fat content. I personally prefer to have sliced pastrami such as this at at a Jewish style deli, same goes for the corned beef. The pulled pork had a very prominent smokey taste! Boca’s BBQ is considering adding sausages to the line up. A whole pig roast is another idea being explored.

Collard Greens, Coleslaw, Hoppin’ John, Mac N Cheese 

Boca’s Best BBQ carries two variations of coleslaw, pictured above is the mayonnaise based slaw and the other is vinaigrette based. The Hoppin’ John rice was interesting, my favorite side of the night in fact. The restaurant uses the same rub that flavors the meat to season the rice. There has been some changes to the mac and cheese since the re-branding and this side may change again, this time to a baked version.

Cornbread

The cornbread was traditional in the sense that it was not overly sweet. It was also quite buttery!

BRISKET EGGROLLS – Brisket, pulled pork, coleslaw, served with BBQ ranch dressing

The brisket eggrolls were great! A tasty and creative dish, loved it.

Pecan Pie

The pecan pie was served hot which I did not expect but was a nice touch. Yummy! This dessert has a permanent spot on the menu but there are also specials offered daily.
