More on Butler's Bar-B-Que.

Just past the Patapsco Flea Market, Butlerís offers a sunny indoor seated area or cute outdoor side, which features umbrella-shaded tables where you can eat your meat. Butlerís pit beef and smoked turkey sandwiches ($5 each) hold thick slices of smoky meat in a Kaiser roll sturdy enough to handle a slathering of spicy barbecue sauce, onions, and horseradish. Ask for coleslaw on the minced barbecue sandwich (again, $5) because thatís all the peppery-hot, well-done shredded pork needs. A chicken-fried pork chop sandwich off the specials board ($5) begs to be eaten in a backyard, its square white bread yellow with oil and fattening with every bite. Each satisfying side dish (small, $1.50) tasted better than most: mac and cheese with real cheddar, peppery green beans, shredded white slaw, piquant and translucent cabbage, slightly sweet potato salad with parsley, zesty deviled eggs (at 50 cents a pop). Wash all the sodium down with a sweet tea ($1.50), and consider getting a huge cube of yellow cake ($2) topped with a thin layer of chocolate frosting to share betwixt four to six people. Seriously, hit the flea market first.
