Dining with dog: Carolina ‘que, with a view

dsc044531When it comes to North Carolina style barbecue, there’ve been slim pickins in Baltimore. When it comes to dog-friendly restaurants, they’ve been slimmer yet.

Now there’s a place that offers both, Harbor Que, and it’s quickly become a favorite of my dog Ace.

The first time we went, he was offered a small container of free meat scraps. The second time, he received a mountain of turkey and beef, piled high in a foam container.

I can attest that what they serve the humans — wings,chicken, ribs, Carolina pulled pork, pit beef ham and turkey — is top notch as well.

Dogs are allowed on the outdoor deck at Harbor Que, which opened last month.

Harbor Que is located at 1421 Lawrence St., off Key Highway in Locust Point, just a stone’s throw from the Inner Harbor. It’s open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

This post made me smile, ’cause I’m from North Carolina, and it’s hard to explain what “barbecue” means to us to someone from out of state who’s never had it! It’s like a religion here… good to see someone in Maryland’s got it right! 😀

I hope to see you there some day! It’s right down the street from my office. Perhaps I’ll get new pal Toula to lunch there with me!
