One of the only barbecue spots in the neighborhood that still only uses coal, Soot Bull Jeep specializes in baby back ribs that are sweet, tender, and not too fatty. The spicy pork is also good, and the banchan (especially the bean sprouts) go great with the meat. Things tend to get pretty smoky in here, so know that you’re going to walk out smelling like a campfire.
