That's my favorite thing about Texas, the barbecue.

ssweeney's Review of Evetts Bar-B-Que

Joint: 
  • Brisket: Smokey cut from the fatty side. Mushy, pot-roast texture from the oven/steam pan/crock pot.
  • Spare Rib: Wet rib. Sweet sauce has been applied while it was waiting in the crock pot. Falls easily off the bone, but meat is mushy.
  • Sauce: Thin & hot. Sweet & tangy. Good.
  • Beans: Thick & hot. But not too much going on here... lacks any depth of flavor.
  • Potato Salad: Sweet! K-Dog says it tastes like a breakfast cereal... and he's right: It tastes like there are fruit loops in the potato salad!
  • Atmosphere: Picnic tables out front on patio. Big plastic cow head on dining room wall. Meat cooked on mesquite and kept warm in crock pots. Bob agrees to show us his custom-made pits.
