Everett & Jones Barbeque
  126 Broadway/2nd St.; Jack London area.  This family-owned and -run, full-service restaurant is a sit-down-and-stay-a-while branch of a popular take-out storefront.  Former Oakland Raiders coach John Madden says it’s “the greatest”; former mayor Jerry Brown calls it “the premier restaurant in Oakland”; and Whoopi Goldberg says,”Ummm—goood!”  Lunch portions of chicken, ribs, homemade beef links, and the house-specialty beef brisket come with potato salad, wheat bread, and the tasty, award-winning house sauce in a choice of mild, medium, or hot (and they do mean hot).  Dinner portions are bigger and include a choice of fresh housemade greens, yams, potato salad, and baked beans, plus either corn bread or wheat bread.  It all washes down nicely with a Brothers Brewing Company beer produced locally by the only African American-owned microbrewery in the country.  Desserts include sweet potato, pecan, and peach pies, and lemon, chocolate (actually white cake with chocolate frosting), and “sock-it-to-me” cakes.
