I’ve had this place bookmarked forever and finally had a chance to go a while back. It’s got a “dive bar” feel thanks to it’s location off of Highland Drive (down the street from some strip clubs) and the old, weathered building it’s in. But, that just seems to solidify their reputation as the town’s best barbecue. No legitimate barbecue place could occupy a clean,modern building, right?
Inside you’ll find two connected rooms. One with the register, soda machines, and wooden picnic table benches. The other room is a larger dining area with several tables and chairs. The giant menu behind the register will have you drooling. There’s an all you can eat option for $34.99 that offers up everything on the menu. For those that aren’t that daring there are plenty of a la carte options like sandwiches, salads, and wraps. But it’s the barbecue platters that bring folks in.
For my first visit I had to try the rib platter ($22.99). With fall-off-the-bone tender baby back ribs with a good crust/bark and smokey flavor, thick and meaty spare ribs, and a massive, charred and fatty beef rib, this was a great option to try multiple proteins. For a side, I went with the mac ’n cheese. Made from elbow pasta and sitting in a thick, creamy cheese sauce topped with cheddar, it only served as a speed bump in my road to devouring the barbecue.
I’ll agree with many others in saying this is the city’s best ‘cue. No one else in town can beat their hickory smoked barbecue. Forget about the chain restaurants, this father and son team are cooking up food with passion that can’t be matched in the valley.
