4403 Northwest Gateway Avenue, Riverside 816-741-4294 | hjfbbq.com

It's hogs inside and hogs outside at Hawg Jaw Fritz. Big bikes line the parking lot of the Riverside barbecue joint that's done up in Harley orange and gleams with chrome. The year-old place was takeout-only when it started but has added indoor seating and a patio for the working folks who come for the "Working Folks Special" (a sandwich, a side, a drink). Peggy Wiggs oversees the smoker, packed with apple and cherry wood, while her daughters take care of the sides and beans. Go on a Thursday or Friday for the special sweet-potato sticks, dusted with nutmeg and served with a sweet vanilla dipping sauce. While you're waiting on your order, look at the trophies lining the counter, reminders that the team behind this restaurant has racked up plenty of kudos in its half-decade of competition cooking. Take a bite of the food and you'll understand why.
