Health food may be good for the conscience but Oreos taste a hell of a lot better.

dbarrow's Review of Queens Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Beans: Very nice spice, but just a little too mushy. Probably due to simmering all day? Try them at the lunch, probably perfect.
  • Sauce: Very spicy and slightly sweet. Very nice mixture, well balanced. Excellent!!
  • Spare Rib: Nice smoke flavor, but not enough rub and too firm and tough.
  • Potato Salad: Mustard based and better than average.
  • Coleslaw: Mush - YUCK!!
  • Sausage: Good flavor and texture. Very nice with good spices.
  • Dessert: Pina Colada Cake, home-made ice cream, and peach cobbler - all outstanding.
  • Brisket: They trimmed off all the good shit and this is way too firm. Arggghhh!!! They messed up a perfectly good cut of meat.
  • Atmosphere: Only place open on the island at this time. This place was not our intended stop, but thanks to Danny @ This Is It!! We are here, and happy to be here. Lots of Texas license plates and red, white, and blue table cloths. Newspaper articles and signed portraits by semi-famous people. Don't touch the wooden Indian!! Old timey cash register is a nice 'touch' - can't touch this either!! Buffalo hide overhead is definitely an unusual touch. Good tunes playing courtesy of the Arrow!!
