5. Brisket & Cheese Sandwich, Smoked Kitchen & Tap
Smoked Kitchen And Tap’s brisket and cheese sandwich is a Top 5 sandwich in Central Virginia. Yes, it’s that good. We also suggest the following sides: Mac & Cheese and the Baked Beans With Sausage. The Pulled Pork Platter is also a strong order. If you enjoy Cornbread, try Smoked’s rendition. The Cornbread is super sweet and almost “cake like.” It’s damn good!
