bkarau's Review of The Swinging Door

  • Atmosphere: Looks like a joint. Multiple smokestacks. Pecan grove across street. Gravel lot. Ramshackle building with slab floor. Swinging door root beer. BUT: Quaint stagecoach sign, table service, plates, and large aTm signs everywhere
  • Sauce: Worsterchire, Boyardee, and cayenne
  • Beans: Pintos: Ranch style. Large onion chunks
  • Coleslaw: Raisins. Bland
  • Potato Salad: Very eggy with too much mayo
  • Sausage: Bland and moderate. Good texture
  • Spare Rib: Overcooked. Great bark, though
  • Brisket: Great bark, good flavor and ring. Firm and moist, but not too tender. A bit too tough
