I would a whole lot rather you taste the flavor of the meat before you put anything on it. Taste the time and energy that went into it.

crosen's Review of Grand Prize BBQ

  • Spare Rib: Very tender, meaty, tasty, not much rub, but it didn't need much.
  • Sauce: Peppery, spicy, sweet, smoky sauce. Too many things going on to blend well.
  • Quotable: 'Mesquite smoked ribs were one of a kind!!! Pass on the rest though.'
  • Coleslaw: Bland but okay. Carrot mixed w/cabbage.
  • Potato Salad: Standard Potato Mayo w/celery and dill.
  • Sausage: Nice, smoky flavor. Meaty with a good casing.
  • Brisket: Firm, Bland, a little dry
  • Atmosphere: Nice, big stack of wood. Place is small and quaint.
    Clean, wood tables. Old town feel. Guitar mounted on wall.
  • Beans: Pinto beans are very average. Out of can taste.
