When considering the best BBQ in the country, most people don’t imagine a restaurant deep in California’s wine country. Those people are missing out, however: The ribs at Bounty Hunter Wine Bar & Smokin’ BBQ might be the best you’ll find outside of Memphis. The Napa Valley joint’s "slow and low" cooking process and juicy cut make for delectable bites that slide right off the bone. Their sides are stellar too, from juicy half-sour pickles to decadent, gooey mac & cheese and steaming cornbread. The wine list is sizeable, but we suggest beer here—the options are impressive and there's really no better way to wash down a heaping plate of smoked meat.

Oof, the ribs here are so good—I'd drive up from LA just for an order of 'em and a really nice beer. The atmosphere is super casual, the service is great, and if you aren't weirded out by plenty of taxidermy, you'll have an enjoyable experience here.
