The big, red metal Real Deal Barbecue shack has been a fixture on Clarksville Highway in Bordeaux for years. They've moved inside recently and now the cooker and the old truck sits next to the building at their new location, and you can tell by the prodigious smoke that this pork is going to have flavor. The shoulder sandwich is made up of big chunks of pulled pork, covered in a rich, tomato based barbecue sauce. The pork is a smoky, moist delight. Normally I don’t like having sauce already on the meat, but here it works. The chicken has decent smoke and if you order the sandwich expect a big 1/4 chicken piece with a couple of pieces of bread thrown in.
Real Deal also serves up ribs (only a couple days a week), hot wings, fish, brisket, and polish sausage. It’s the usual assortment of sides and drinks. They deliver with a $20 minimum.
