I won't even sell somebody a barbecue unless they get cole slaw. If they want a barbecue and they don't want cole slaw, there's something wrong with that person.  It all goes together. You've got to have cole slaw and hush puppies with barbecue.

bkarau's Review of Grand Prize BBQ

Joint: 
  • Potato Salad: Standard. Strong on the dill. OK
  • Beans: Pintos: Slightly overcooked. Hot hang time
  • Atmosphere: Most of the clientele is wearing coveralls with a name patch. Good memorabilia - an oil derrick in front. But this is an ex-seafood joint, with multiple portholes and seafood on the sign.
  • Brisket: A good standup. Firm, medium ring, and crosscut. Some of it is cut too thin and dried out quickly
  • Sausage: Good casing. Peppery. Texture OK. Slightly homogeneous.
  • Coleslaw: medium-fine cut and cabbagey flavor. Sauce is not a factor. Pretty good.
  • Spare Rib: Good firmness and ring, but greasy. Clean pull. Weak bark prevents a higher rating.
  • Sauce: Very thick. Liquid smoke. Good moderate burn.
