Neighborhood Classic

M & D Cafe
2004 E 28th Ave.

Texans Mack and Daisy Shead have been spoiling Denver’s southern-cookin’ lovers for 20 years. Barbecue is the main attraction, with ribs, chicken and sliced beef and pork the big sellers. Mack smokes his meats with hickory and apple woods, and he serves them with three heat levels of vinegar-tanged sweet sauce. The fish is the big secret among the multicultural crowds that frequent this friendly Five Points locale. Rolled in corn meal and deep fried, the catfish, perch and whiting are mighty good. Down-home sides include greens, beans and mac salad — and don’t leave without a slice of homemade sweet potato pie.
