It may have taken a little while for the barbecue trend to make its way here, but with the arrival of Little Miss BBQ in Phoenix, it's fair to say it's arrived and in a big way. When we look back on the Valley's barbecue scene, I think we'll see two distinct eras: pre-Little Miss and post-. Because yes, the barbecue is really that good. Owners Scott and Bekke Holmes do central Texas-style 'cue that's dry rubbed and slow smoked -- for a full 11 hours in the case of Little Miss BBQ's brisket. The rest of the menu's meaty options include pulled pork, housemade sausage, pastrami, and turkey. Waiting in the restaurant's inevitable line is part of the experience. Just keep your fingers crossed they don't run out before you reach the counter. Best to show up early and avoid the risk of severe disappointment. Read our review.
