Tuck in a napkin and get ready for some smoky, tangy Southern barbecue.
In sporty surrounds, chew ’cue alongside hot, spiced, boiled peanuts, fried pickles, several types of bacon and a draft brew or one of the dozens of whiskies. 1190 N. Highland Ave. NE, 404-249-5000
Fat Matt’s Rib Shack
Live blues are performed nightly, perhaps to drown out some of the lip-smacking. Pair a slab of ribs with baked beans, slaw and collard greens on the side. 1811 Piedmont Ave., 404-607-1622
Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q
Homey environs and fare, from the brisket, chicken, pork and baby-back ribs to the Brunswick stew, potato salad and sliced white bread. 1238 Dekalb Ave., 404-577-4030

What says "summmer" more than a burger on the grill?
Sliders are the hot trend in burgers right now, and you'll find super-luxe sliders at Barclay Prime (237 S. 18th St., 215.732.7560) - tender Kobe beef topped with caramelized onions and herb aioli. Or how about the classic combination of blue cheese and bacon? Hit up Village Whiskey (118 S. 20th St., 215.665.1088) for the Whiskey King burger, topped with Rogue blue cheese, applewood-smoked bacon and a decadent slab of foie gras. If you like a cold brew with your burger, grab a seat at Rembrandt's and order a craft beer along with one of their beautiful burgers, like the lamb patty with feta-flecked yogurt on a nine-grain roll.

Boston's Sea Grille To Go is located outside on the waterfront at the Boston Harbor Hotel and offers a casual, outdoor-friendly menu with the same fabulous flavors and quality of its more upscale sister restaurant, Rowes Wharf Sea Grille. Offerings such as a crisp haddock sandwich, a cup of New England clam chowder, or a char-grilled jumbo all-beef hot dog are perfect for al fresco dining on the outdoor terrace, or take a short walk along the HarborWalk where you can sit and dig in.

Cupcake Royale (108 Pine St., 206.883.7656) is already known for their assortment of mouth-watering cupcakes, but starting this month, they are also branching out into ice cream, launching a line of Cupcakes ‘n’ Cream ice cream flavors made with bites of their famous cupcakes like Red Velvet, Salted Caramel and Peppermint Party, mixed into the ice cream base. There will be other flavors as well — 14 in all — and all made with local, seasonal and natural ingredients. The Whiskey Maple Bacon Crack ice cream is sure to be a favorite with its candied bacon pieces, and we doubt people will be able to pass up the Bananza flavor with roasted banana, homemade brownies and caramel. As if that weren’t enough, they’re offering shakes. CakeShakes will be made with chunks of cupcake in them — and let’s not forget the ice cream sandwiches made with Macaroon cookies. Grab-n-Go pints will also be available at all six cafes in Seattle. Time to get your sweet tooth on!
