dbarrow's Review of The Swinging Door | "Show us your pits"

When you're driving around, dont forget to keep your eyes open. You never know when you might happen upon a shade-tree barbecue stand or a little shack that nobody's ever heard of -- with the best smoked meat in creation.

dbarrow's Review of The Swinging Door

  • Potato Salad: Mayo and eggs with big potato chunks. Not bad, but I prefer mustard over mayo.
  • Beans: Chilibeans - Mikey, no likey.
  • Sausage: Sweet flavors and good smoke throughout. Excellent!!
  • Sauce: Too much vinegar and not enough spice.
  • Atmosphere: Family friendly restaurant. Green & white checkered tablecloths. Juicy pig barbecued pie sign and lots of beer signs. They have their own root beer! Lots of women on the staff and the beer is icy!
  • Coleslaw: Quite tasty with raisins. Interesting combination, I like it!!
  • Brisket: Firmer than I prefer, but not bad.
  • Spare Rib: Lots of bark and tough, not my favorite.
