But what makes a latin style barbecue different from an American barbecue? The next time you are searching for food delivery or restaurants of this type, look for these signs.

    • Zesty Spices: Expect to taste an exciting mix of cumin, chiles, garlic, cilantro, and other flavors while at a latin barbecue. These are used in rice, to season meat, and mixed up in vegetables. As always, the specific combination of flavors will vary depending on the chef.
    • Rice And Beans: A latin staple, rice and beans will always be around to compliment barbecue meat. This tasty dish is carried by all latin restaurants and made by many latin families as well. It is a great side dish for any meal.
