Oak is the wood of choice for barbecuing at People's, the Overtown restaurant that's been serving barbecue and soul food specialties for four decades. The menu includes oxtails, pork chops, and ham shanks, but most diners come for the tender chicken and meaty ribs, both bathed in a mildly tangy barbecue sauce. Sides such as collard greens, baked beans, and black-eyed peas are pure, delightful Dixie fare. Generous portions leave little room for homemade pineapple-flecked bread pudding, or any of the numerous desserts that change daily.
