San Diegans!

OK, anyone familiar with downtown San Diego, you have to help me.

For some reason, I have got the name "Henry's" stuck in my head. About 15 years ago, I went to a sandwich shop in downtown SD, I think named Henry's. It had a smokehouse in the back, where they smoked their own hams. They had a menu with only 3 items on it - BBQ ham, BBQ beef, and combination. They sold sandwiches that kicked serious ass, and had about 3 tables in their narrow storefront. Sodas were in a cooler, and chips on a rack.

Does this place still exist? Do I have the name right? And, what's the address? Hey, I could make it to SD again sometime soon. Depends on the Navy test schedule...

Description: Henry’s BBQ has been serving up authentic, homemade Southern BBQ fare for over a decade and is still going strong. Don’t be intimidated by the locking safety-screen door and the mid-Market Street downtown address. Henry’s BBQ is an everyman’s eatery.

The interior décor is no-fuss: all white walls are spotted with blue accents here and there, utilitarian wooden booths line one wall, with plain tables and chairs filling the remainder of the dining room. You can count on a bit of a wait around lunchtime when the place is buzzing with cops with a hankering for "the hickory."

Neighborhood: Downtown & Middletown

Price Range: $0-$15

Dress code: Casual

Hours open: 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon-Sat; closed Sun

Credit Cards: None Accepted

Recommended Dishes: Henry’s offers a daily special, which invariably, it seems, receives raves by the server who describes it simply as "the bomb." Sandwich choices include BBQ beef, ham or a combo, served with your choice of a side — coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad or BBQ beans.

Dinner-style plates are offered as well, and are accompanied by barbecue beans and your choice of salad. Choose from barbecue turkey, pork ribs, chicken, or a combo plate, but save room for dessert because they make a killer sweet potato pie (if the cops haven’t already gotten to it, that is).
I found this on google...I am not sure if this is the same one you are talking about but it is in San Deigo so I just figured!

I tried Google and all I found was "Henry's Pub" which is some nuevo-Yuppie brewpub thing. Thanks, hon.

Time for a roadtrip...
