Wolfe's Barbeque has unusual hours, and it isn't open on weekends. But it's worth putting up with any scheduling difficulties to get a taste of owner Louis Wolfe's hickory-smoked meats, offered in servings as small as a sandwich and as large as a full, take-home buffet spread. You'll find all the usual barbecue suspects -- ribs, brisket, chicken, hot links -- as well as barbecued tofu, dry-rubbed with Wolfe's special blend of spices. Order at the counter (all the traditional side dishes are also available), then seat yourself in the small, casual, friendly dining room. No charge for the entertaining view of Colfax outside.
