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

Every joint, from the best to the worst, seems to have people who think the food served there is the very best. Even bad barbecue is somebody's favorite.

bkarau's Review of Hinzes Bar-B-Que

Joint: 
  • Potato Salad: Good. Eggy with light mustard
  • Coleslaw: Tangy - almost straight vinegar. Very thin sauce. Good cut - could be chunkier vs. stringy
  • Sauce: WOW. Very complex and balanced. Spicy with great hang time. Thick and creamy
  • Spare Rib: Sticks to bone. Strange rub - grainy but patchy. Lots of pepper. Like sand & water
  • Sausage: Pretty good. Medium texture, but mild taste
  • Brisket: Firm yet tender. Crosscut. Great bark. Super smoke flavor
  • Atmosphere: It is hotter than hell in the parking lot (asphalt), especially after an hour with 2-60 A/C in Salamander's expedition. Nice and cool inside. Joint is very nice. Tin ceilings, trees inside, low, brick red paint. Very old gas pump and many dead animals. Big without feeling too big
  • Beans: Pintos: Good. Skin a bit tough, but meat is too soft. Mild
