        while not in the Qtr., Drago's is very near in the Hilton Riverside.
        otherwise, Acme Oyster does them.

      im now aware of anyone serving bbq oysters other than Redfish Grill, where they serve them like bbq wings -- fried and coated in a spicy sauce and drizzled w/ blue cheese.

        Middendorf's has an appetizer of bbq oysters, but it's not like either chargrilled oysters or the "wing" oyster at RFG. They're baked and served on the halfshell with a tangy red sauce that is actually closer to traditional bbq sauce. They are delicious and I never skip getting an order of them when I'm over that way.

          I got the bbq shrimp there. Totally different than what you'd expect but delicious.
