It was my Uncle George who discovered that alcohol was a food well in advance of modern medical thought.

dbarrow's Review of Carls Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Potato Salad: Mustard and mayo, pickels, green and red pepper. Not very good.
  • Atmosphere: Lots of wood with a nice corrugated tin/aluminum roof. Big ass elk!. Purple pitch fork dude is scarey. Giant Cholula sauce bottle.
  • Spare Rib: Very sweet, East Texas style, but tender.
  • Sauce: Sweet with some body and a little bit of spice.
  • Coleslaw: Not my style, mayo based and shredded.
  • Sausage: Jalepeno sausage - sweet AND spicey. Quite lovely. Jalepeno and red pepper flakes - OUTSTANDING!!

    Regular sausage - sweet with not much flavor. Don't waste your time, go for the jalepeno variety.

  • Brisket: Too much smoke flavor and not tender or juicy enough.
  • Beans: Very plain, but tender.
