One of our featured barbecue joints in Ulster County

Inspired by New England lobster shacks, ’Cue — a seasonal (May-October), self-serve hangout — is decorated with retro touches. Though there’s indoor seating, most people opt to dine outdoors on the patio. Ranging from $5 to $7 (including cole slaw), the delicious sandwiches are priced to sell.

Try the BBQ Cuban, made with pulled pork instead of traditional roast pork. The smoked pastrami Reuben is a favorite with weekenders from the city. Vegetarians devour the Faux ’Cue, made with smoked seitan and served with sautéed onions. Save room for desserts, charmingly presented in Mason jars: banana pudding with Nilla wafers and strawberry shortcake are crowd-pleasers.
