One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

bkarau's Review of Country Tavern

Joint: 
  • Atmosphere: Simple red corrugated siding and a nice awning. Liquor store next door. Cool and dark inside with pool table and country music. Looks more like a beer joint than a BBQ joint. Great pictures including Earl, Miss Texas, and Bush 41. Cloth napkins a downer.
  • Spare Rib: Sweet with brown sugar. Tender, falling off bone.
  • Beef: Strange cut, along the grain. Drowned in sauce. Tender but mushy - like a roast.
  • Potato Salad: Very heavy on mustard and kind of dry.
