After meeting with a group to discuss small town issues at Jefferson Street Barbecue in Converse, Indiana we really got down to business: lunch!

After smelling that yummy goodness for hours at this Grant County restaurant, I couldn’t wait to dig in.

As someone who would never have counted herself among barbecue lovers, it makes a huge difference when it comes out of a commercial smoker in a small Indiana town!

Jefferson Street BBQ had a great menu and I’ve since learned that it’s been updated since the time of my visit to offer even more barbecue goodness.

This time around, it was just my husband, Jeremy, and I. It was nice to kick back, relax, and enjoy a quiet lunch with like-minded folks. During our visit, we had a really tough time deciding. After careful consideration, my husband choose the Pulled Pork Wrap and I requested the Beef Brisket sandwich.

All the sides at Jefferson Street Barbecue are homemade right there in the restaurant! How could we decide between homemade potato salad, coleslaw, smoked baked beans, mac n’ cheese, and green beans with smoked bacon?

But somehow–we did! I ordered the mac n’ cheese and my husband quickly claimed dibs on the potato salad.

What a delicious lunch it was! While my Beef Brisket was very good, my husband’s Pulled Pork Wrap was out of this world! It’s hard to believe something seemingly simple could be so memorable–but it definitely, definitely was!

Either way you go–you’ll find good grub at this Grant County restaurant!
