Drive on by

I eat BBQ from all over the country so am not a neophyte here. The smell outside led me to think the food might be good.

Nope

Their burnt ends were not burnt, in fact no trace of smoke was detectable; almost like boiled meat. The sausage was just barely ok, and was served shredded in paper thin slices. But it was almost the highlight of the meal!

The brisket was smokeless and matched the “burnt” ends. Shaved thin, it tasted like dry roast beef without a trace of smoke. Ribs were mediocre with little flavor. This BBQ ranked a 1 or 2 out of 10.

Beans were OK, slaw was OK, and they did have some good cheesey corn; kerneled corn covered with cheese sauce which was pretty tasty. BBQ sauces were OK and just like KC masterpiece type bottled sauces; just OK….

As I stated above, have eaten BBQ all over the country, some excellent, some not so great. This one deserves a driveby. Try the 54th Street grill and bar around the corner. No BBQ but you will be much happier……..

Burnt ends

Not burn ends, kinda like boiled meat, little if any smoke taste…
