Adamson BarbecueMaybe an industrial zone in north Toronto doesn’t seem a likely destination for food, but this fact isn’t stopping aficionados of Texan barbecue. Since opening, Adamson Barbecue has had long queues snaking from its front door, full of carnivores eager to get inside. Waiting on line means plenty of time to ponder what to order (and how much the stomach can handle) from the menu of brisket, pulled pork, ribs, sausage, and lots of sides on offer. Be warned: Just as in Texas, once this lunch spot runs out of meat, it closes for the day. In this case, the early bird gets the pork.
