Just like Moses and his people wandered the desert, I've been traveling the back roads of this country on my own journey to the Barbecue Promised Land.  I'd have taken better notes had I known I'd be writing a book.

bkarau's Review of Queens Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Sauce: Great. Lots of cayenne and greasy.
  • Coleslaw: Fine chop. Good flavor; not too spicy.
  • Beans: Pintos: Good flavor but mushy. End of day issue.
  • Potato Salad: Good texture. Firm and flavorful.
  • Sausage: Good. A tad soft on the filling and a tad tough on the casing. A bit homogeneous, but good flavor.
  • Spare Rib: Tired.
  • Atmosphere: Since 1968. Great signs, awards, etc. Nice wooden indian. Buffalo skin on the ceiling with nice plexiglass shield. They called out 'Number 79' even though we're the only ones here.
  • Brisket: Pot roasty. They sauced it and I think that hurt. Excessive trimming.
Main Fare: 
5.1
Other Fare: 
6.7
