...saying that labor costs can be held down by not having it cooked slowly over a wood fire by a sullen man with a squint was like saying that a symphony orchestra would be cheaper without the violins.

dbarrow's Review of Drexlers Bar-B-Que

  • Potato Salad: Mustard base with good flavor and not too whipped or too chunky. Well done!
  • Sausage: Now this is good stuff. Very tasty, right tenderness and spices throughout. You can't beat these!!
  • Atmosphere: Lots of basketball paraphenalia. Phi Slamma Jamma baby!! Short stack of wood out back. The TV is very irritating, since it's on some stupid channel. Wood paneling on lower half of walls only.
  • Hot Link: Home-made links are very spicy with a mush like consistency. Would prefer it if it was a more solid textured product.
  • Sauce: Thin with loads of cayenne!! Needs more body.
  • Beans: Some of the sauce made it into the beans. Also has bacon and green pepper.
  • Spare Rib: Chewy with lots of fat - not good!
  • Brisket: A little dry, but still tender. Not my favorite.
