Here’s where we’ll start: It’s okay to go to a barbecue joint when you’re a vegetarian. There’s nothing inherently wrong with your decision to accompany loved ones as they enjoy massive trays of meat. The smell might bother you, but the meatless crowd has a lot to celebrate at barbecue restaurants—particularly next-level side dishes.
To better serve those looking for a spectacular mac and cheese they can eat alongside their meat-loving significant other, we’ve compiled a list of the best sides in places that are famous for something else—meats. So grab a map, ignore the uncle who asks you every Thanksgiving if you’ve given up on the same conviction and lifestyle you’ve had since you were 12 and enjoy more than just sweet tea, wherever you go.
