Shemwells has been serving barbeque over 80 years in Cairo. Their pork sandwiches and vinegar based sauce are legendary. Regrettably, Cairo, and Shemwells with it, seem to be slowly deteriorating. Visiting last month, it was still good, but seems to have lost something. The atmosphere is still "greasy spoon." It is still worth a go, but I recommend the take-out option.
