Since 1963 Opens in Trout Space
102 Smith Street (at Pacific Street)
Trout's outdoor bar remains, but now the interior space has reopened as a barbecue joint. Chowhound SteakNut says, "It's market style, like Hill Country. I had a really good pulled pork sandwich there, which consisted of two 'mini' sandwiches. The buns were a tad stale, but the mass of meat and the pairing with pineapple salsa made up for it... And where else are you going to find Lone Star for $3?!" Has anybody else visited Since 1963 yet?
