dbarrow's Review of Hickory Fare Bar-B-Que | "Show us your pits"

One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

dbarrow's Review of Hickory Fare Bar-B-Que

  • Sides: BBQ beans are very tasty, but the rest are not worth mentioning, but they are respectable.
  • Spare Rib: Smoked all the way through and the hickory flavor just comes right out and hits you. Not tender enough but GREAT flavor.
  • Atmosphere: Don’t like the ivy on the outside of the building, it’s too foo-foo. Lots of good photos of semi-famous people on the inside, mostly country singers. Place is too new on the inside with red and white checkered table cloth. Little habanero sauce on the table is a nice addition. But NO BEER – apparently it’s a Tyler thing. They do have big red and lots of country music.
  • Brisket: Excellent flavor, very tender – this stuff can stand alone, no sauce necessary.
  • Sauce: very sweet with a little bit of tang, very nice, but I prefer my sauce spicy.
  • Sausage: Greasy and flavorful, but would like more spice. Great texture and right mixture of fat and meat.
