Last month I dined at 2Paul’s Radically Urban Barbeque, located at 2668 Johnston St. next to Albertsons. Right when I walked in I was greeted by owners Marilynn Adams and Gary Roy. Sensing I was a newcomer and a little overwhelmed with the menu, they were full of suggestions, but were adamant about the ribs-after all it was all you eat for $10.99. I felt it was my duty to try a few dishes, so I settled on:
Not only homemade but made by hand. Beer battered, one at a time and fried till golden brown. A totally mouthwatering confection. These were absolutely delicious and worth getting. Normally I am not a big fan of onion rings, but you can taste the love that’s put into making them.
Pecan-smoked certified Angus beef brisket, on a toasted bun, sliced or chopped. I ordered my brisket chopped and covered it with 2Paul’s signature Hot BBQ Sauce. The meat was smoked to perfection and the sauce only added to the deliciousness of the sandwich.
Prime cut pork ribs, RUB’d and smoked. If you are a rib lover, you cannot pass up Tuesday’s at 2Paul’s with their all you can eat ribs for $10.99. They were perfectly cooked, falling off the bone like butter. I sampled them with all the sauces, but were also delicious without.
2Paul’s original, homemade barbeque sauces. Choose Mild, Hot or Pepper Jelly in 12 oz. bottles. While all of them were delicious, I found myself going back to the Pepper Jelly. Each are homemade and are available for purchase for when you BBQ at home.
The menu is very extensive and works with whatever your taste buds are craving. They have everything you would expect from a BBQ joint including ribs, pork, sausage and brisket; and some you wouldn’t shrimp, salads and hot dogs. Even the pickiest eater won’t have a problem finding something to eat so bring the whole family. Click here for the complete menu.
The prices were not outrageous for the amount of food and the quality. For those looking for a good lunch, $10 will get you a sandwich and a drink. For a few bucks more you can really go all out and get a meat dinner with 2 sides and bread. They also sell their meat by the pound and have sandwich and rib packs that will feed anywhere from 4 – 16 people, perfect for those tailgating parties when you don’t feel like cooking.

The décor perfectly matched the name, radically urban. They use the lime green, purple and reds in the logo throughout the restaurant. There is plenty of comfortable seating both inside and outside. They incorporate the BBQ joint feel with familiar wall art such as the one pictured below, without going overboard.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at 2Paul’s and will definitely be back to try the BBQ Shrimp and the Anch Encrusted, Cherry Glazed Pork Tenderloin.
See you next month, until then Bon Appetite!
