Around Thanksgiving time, this barbecue emporium may be best known as the home of the deep-fried turkey, a Louisiana delicacy that you can order here with a couple days' notice even when it doesn't happen to be November. Believe us: Turkey is not something you want to deep-fry at home, even if your cousin Lambert happens to think it's a good idea. The rest of the year, Tasty Q functions as a genuine drive-thru barbecue stand - but trust us on this one too - Armor All is of absolutely no use against the sauce.
