Hickory-smoked pulled pork, smoked Cheddar, barbecue sauce, tangy pit beans and housemade slaw – sounds like the makings of a typical – albeit delicious – barbecue sandwich with sides, right? Well, in Springfield, Missouri, Smokin’ Bob’s BBQ swaps the bun for tortilla chips on this one, shapeshifting it into must-try nachos.
Further combining the two concepts, the nachos come with jalapeños on top and a classic kosher dill pickle on the side.
Although owner Bob Craver and his team use strategy and rhythm to serve meals quickly, this isn’t a fast-food joint. A lot of prep work goes into the slow-smoked meats and scratch-made sides.
Besides the pulled pork, you’ll find brisket, burnt ends, chicken and sausage links on the menu. Rely on Craver’s expert pairing skills and order meat samplers, sandwiches or even a wrap off of the specialties section.
