Hank’s Meat & Potatoes — “home of the finger-suckin’ good stuff” — offers ribs, chicken, pulled pork and tri-tips, as well as wood-grilled rib-eye steaks and burgers. A pulled-pork sandwich with a side goes for $6. Sides include potatoes hand cut the old-fashioned way into french fries (with the potato skin intact), as well as fresh cole slaw, baked beans and other items.
The smoker out front is custom-made. Hank’s is on Hwy. 49 at 25005 Shale Ridge Rd. in Auburn. Here’s a quick iPhone shot of the owner Jared and his smoker. (Hank, the restaurant’s namesake, “is in the car seat,” Jared told me).
Smokey’s Kitchen in Truckee also is a good rib house.
