I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.

dbarrow's Review of Lyndons Pit BBQ

Joint: 
  • Overall: The only thing this joint has going for it is the ice cold beer that is cheap and big!
  • Atmosphere: Very commercial. Texas license plates, hubcaps, farm implements. Classic basketball on TV. Red and white checkered tablecloths. They have shiner on tap!
  • Brisket: Very tender, beautiful smoke ring, but something off on the taste.
  • Sausage: Very tender, flakes off in nice chunks. Good amount of sage in the meat. Nicely done.
  • Pulled Pork: All shredded up and stringy. Too mushy for me.
  • Potato Salad: Mustard based with good chunks of potatoes and red onions.
  • Coleslaw: Mayo based and shredded nastiness - YUCK!
  • Sauce: No spice whatsoever! This is ketchup and vinegar mixed together - why bother.
  • Spare Rib: Skin separates from the meat. Kind of dry and stringy, not consistent.
  • Sides: Corn mixture with green peppers and cream based is nice.
  • Beans: Lots of green pepper flavor with onions and bacon. Too much green pepper for my taste.
