Sweet Coralie made a big recommendation to check this place out whenever Ned and I had a hankering for some bar-b-que at cookbook club last month. Well we didn’t wait long (less than 24 hours :-D) to try it out after I knew it existed!
This place is definitely a good buy when it comes to bar-b-que but the quality doesn’t seem to match up to Andy Nelson’s. If you are ever in the neighborhood and feel the need for some oinker, check it out!
First thing we tasted was the mac and cheese, which apparently is a barbeque house staple (Ned’s vast knowledge). A.N. does not have this on their list of sides and that is just not cool! Well this macaroni was cheesy and savory, perfect start to the meal.
I got the pork barbeque, and it was nice and juicy but it didn’t have that developed flavor that I am accustomed to. The sauces were interesting, two kansas city ones that both Ned and I got but somehow those flavors escape my memory right now.
Next were the baked beans, with celery and onions. These had a more traditional flavoring, which I enjoyed, in contrast to the weird spicy beans A.N. has.
Lastly, Neddy got the half rack of ribs, which were like $8! See- good buy! In contrast to $13.83 at A.N. So that price gap is substantial, but so is the richness of flavor that these ribs lacked! They were definitely edible and Ned finished them off like a good eater! But not as shining as a star as we hoped they would be.
