Fingerle's wall with BBQ painted on it

Fingerle and Westside BBQ

February's I Spy

by Sally Bjork

From the March, 2019 issue

"I spy Westside Barbeque on Madison in front of longtime A2 fixture Fingerle Lumber," writes Bob Maddox. Fingerle's "is the disappearing backdrop," says Susan Pollans, referring to February's clue.

"Three generations. . . have owned and operated the business" since 1931, relays David Karl. They "sold their acreage with a lease-back from the University of Michigan," writes Ari Scheller. "The barbeque is on the Northwest corner of that parcel." (See Marketplace Changes, p. 49).

Westside makes "some of Ann Arbor's best barbeque," writes Harrison Worden. "One of the yummiest places!" concurs Iris Wang. "As a misplaced Texan," shares Kit McCullough, "I am eternally grateful this joint has opened in my neighborhood."

Fingerle's "will be sorely missed!" writes David Frye. "They answered so many questions," shares Vanessa Mayesky. "We wouldn't have passed inspection without their guidance." "Thanks Fingerle's," writes Elizabeth Nolan. "All the ideas/advice ... priceless."

Fingerle and Westside BBQ broke the record, generating seventy-four entries. Our random drawing winner, Jeffrey Kozlow, will enjoy his $25 gift certificate at Zingerman's.
