Honey Bear's mesquite-smoked ribs and chicken, doused in a sweet-hot, Tennessee-style barbecue sauce, are deliciously tender, practically falling off the bone. Don't ignore the side dishes, especially the spicy Cowbro beans and chunky potato salad. Additional location in this region: 5012 E. Van Buren St., Phoenix, 602-273-9148.
