If you're on the hunt for barbecue in Columbia, Como Smoke & Fire will not disappoint. The family-owned joint doesn't do barbecue according to St. Louis or Kansas City rules, but instead has its own style – CoMo style. If you're looking for lunch or dinner in Columbia today, we recommend getting the pulled pork sandwich to go.
This sandwich is piled high with pulled pork, which is "smoked to perfection." It's served on a sweet jalapeño bun and comes with your choice of side; you can't go wrong with the housemade fries, but if you want a typical barbecue pairing, try the baked beans, mac 'n' cheese or Como Smoke & Fire's bacon-Cheddar-ranch twist on pasta salad.
Want to turn your meal into a full-on feast? Spring for the jalapeño bottle caps, battered and fried slices of jalapeño served with your choice of dipping sauce, or the pulled pork egg rolls, which feature a combination of pork and coleslaw that's wrapped up and fried. End the meal with a treat; pick up some honey ice cream from Giofre Apiaries or go for the funnel cake fries.
Orders can be placed online here or via phone for carryout or curbside pickup.
