The walls are a splash of warm colors, with whimsical figures playing piano, a flowing upright bass, and a saxophone. They are a tribute to the history of Lawnside, a time when lenient liquor laws brought partyers and jazz enthusiasts across the Delaware to munch on ribs, sip drinks, and relax. The borough was a meeting ground for blacks and whites alike from the 1920s to 1970s, when the country was scrutinizing segregation and contemplating the future of race relations. The music that fills the dining room of Rochester's on summer Friday nights in 2014 serves a different purpose.

The Philly region lately has become a magnet to all manner of barbecue from around the country - Brooklyn's Fette Sau , California's Baby Blues BBQ , Texas' Bubba's BBQ . Direct from Arkansas is Whole Hog Cafe , which last week took over a shuttered Bob Evans at 2321 Route 70 West in Cherry Hill (856-910-8060), on the eastbound side, just past Bayard's and across from Top Dog. It's BYOB. Decades ago, Haddonfield native Kathy Maynes moved to Little Rock, where she married Ron Blasingame, a BBQ hobbyist.

In a quiet neighborhood near the high school, which at least five of them attended, 19 miniature U.S. flags were planted in front yards, each pole tied with the purple ribbon that commemorates fallen firefighters.

Glenn Gross and Ed Willis had been searching for an avenue to dive into the barbecue business when a "brownish-orange-colored, barn-looking building" along South Delsea Drive in Vineland, N.J., kept catching their eye. "We just kept driving by this place, looking at it and saying, 'Man, that looks like a barbecue restaurant,' " said Willis, 55, of Gloucester Township. That's where the two longtime friends opened the first Fat Jack's BBQ & Blues. The original site is now closed and their business partnership has changed, but their barbecue acclaim has spurred them to national exposure.
