bkarau's Review of Hickory Fare Bar-B-Que | "Show us your pits"

You can put all of the sauce on it you want, but you still have to master the art of cooking barbecue.

bkarau's Review of Hickory Fare Bar-B-Que

  • Atmosphere: Near RR tracks and a donut shop with a good pile out back, but the structure looks too code compliant. Inside there are lots of signed pictures, but many are of ice skaters (?!?!). The sound of a deep fryer, presence of tablecloths, and general cleanliness flag this as a non-joint.
  • Coleslaw: Very light in both cut and sauce, but little flavor.
  • Sausage: Very sweet. A bit chewey, but not too pasty.
  • Sauce: Tangy, but not overbearing.
  • Spare Rib: Good at first bite, but then become spongy and bland, Possibly boiled?
  • Beef: Good texture, but little flavor.
  • Potato Salad: Almost textureless.
  • Beans: Pinto beans are OK, but a bit mushy.
  • Beans: Serviceable baked beans.
