Named in The 10 Best BBQ Joints In The Nation
Tucked away in a small business park in north Phoenixyou'll findPork on a Fork, a tiny barbecue joint with a catchy name and some of the city's best-lovedpulled pork, ribs, and chicken and beef brisket. Midwestern transplant Justin Erickson brought his passion for high quality meats andexceptional barbecue by crafting a small menu of Midwestern barbecue classics that became an instant hit with the city's barbecue aficionados back in 2009 when the cafe first opened its doors.Pork and the Fork's menu showstopper is probably their perfectly cooked, flavorful brisket, but the pulled-pork sandwich is a close second: finely textured shreds of lean pork, smoked all day over pecan wood then packed into a sesame seed bun and served with your choice of two sides. Succulent, smokey and irresistible, you'll be counting down the hours until your next one. On special Friday nights, the dinner menu expands to include smoked prime rib, but you need to reserve this tasty beast....it goes fast!!
