Tin Star is a small storefront cafe mixed in among all the other small storefront cafes, bars, art galleries and purveyors of knickknackery that shoulder up along Evergreen's high street. It's a nondescript space -- but it happens to house the perfect restaurant concept. Because Tin Star serves only two things: barbecue and doughnuts, both excellent. Go for the pork shoulder and giant apple fritters, two great tastes that go great together.
