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.

tguerrero's Review of Carls Barbecue

Joint: 
  • Sausage: Firm, but greasy
  • Sauce: Ketchup, black pepper. Not bad
  • Pork Loin: Tender, lean....but I suspect BAKING!
  • Brisket: Smoky, lean, firm, but NO seasoning
  • Coleslaw: Slaw should be 'slain.'
  • Potato Salad: Too runny and 'mayonaisy!'
  • Spare Rib: Sweetest rub o' the day, thus far. Sugar,
    honey, firm, slightly dry. Pretty good.
  • Atmosphere: Freeway-side location, adjacent private
    airport, VERY large stuffed animal in dining room
    (props for the stuffed animal--particularly as there
    was a hole cut in the ceiling to accommodate the
    tallest antler!)
Main Fare:
