A far cry from your high school cafeteria's mystery-meat meatloaf, Ted and Honey's Meatloaf BBQ sandwich ($9) is down-home delicious. Everything from the barbecue sauce to the meatloaf is homemade (meats for other sandwiches are even smoked in-house). The house-crafted Southern slaw and pickles mask the cheddar cheese, rendering it superflous—not necessarily a flaw, simply a sign of the condiments' potent flavors.

All sandwiches come on a choice of baguette, multi-grain, brioche, ciabatta, or sliced wheat and are served with a side of salad sprinkled with large croutons. I recommend the ciabatta, which can stand up to the barbecue sauce and any homemade ketchup you might want to add for another jolt of smokiness. If you can get past the barricade of strollers, take your sandwich to go and eat it in Cobble Hill Park.
