I won't even sell somebody a barbecue unless they get cole slaw. If they want a barbecue and they don't want cole slaw, there's something wrong with that person.  It all goes together. You've got to have cole slaw and hush puppies with barbecue.

dbarrow's Review of Kozy Kitchen

  • Potato Salad: Mustard base and whipped but not too much. Actually very nice.
  • Brisket: Greasy but flavorful.
  • Sauce: Pepper sauce - Watch out!! That shit will burn you out. Not a sopping sauce - this stuff could peel the paint off walls. Yow!!

    Regular sauce - very thin and watered down - not good.

  • Beans: Best so far!! good marriage of brown sugar and chili powder.
  • Hot Link: Mush-like consistency with a tough casing, needs work.
  • Veal: Lots of fat, very tender with a good smokey flavor.
  • Spare Rib: They cut them all up!! I still like em though.
  • Pork Roast: Melts in your mouth, extremely tender without being greasy. Excellent job!
  • Atmosphere: We are in the middle of the 5th ward and we be the only white folk. Funky decor with a nice juke box. Orange and green decor, nice aquarium - I think it's missing something, like water and landscaping. African-American newspaper. Tile encased pits from the 50s inside the kitchen still in use - NICE! They are using both oak and hickory here.
