A lunch special at Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que pays tribute to the Jim Crow era, when black travelers weren’t allowed to eat in restaurants and had to carry their meals in shoeboxes.

The barbecue joint on West Mockingbird Lane is owned by Oak Cliff natives Juan and Brent Reaves, the sons of the restaurant’s founder John Reaves.

Smokey John’s shoebox lunches, available Feb.1-29, cost $10.50 and come with a barbecue sandwich, a side, fruit, pickles and a desert of pound cake or sweet-potato pie, the Dallas Morning News reports. On Mondays, you can substitute fried chicken for the sandwich.
