One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

ssweeney's Review of Scholl Brothers Bar Bq

Tour: 

MAIN FARE:

Brisket is falling apart tender - pot roast consistency.  There is a little 'tang' detected on the bark, but otherwise good flavor.  Rib is very good. It clearly has been 'ovened' for a while and consistency suffers a bit.  You get the flavor of a sweet basting sauce on the finish.  Pittsburg Hot Link - Salty & Smooth.  Sausage and Regular Hot Link are standard commercial products.

ATMOSPHERE:

This is an old Donut shop... gutted and rebuilt.  Concrete floors, cinder block construction with corrugated tin roof.  The decor seems a bit contrived and commercial, but the DPS trooper at the next table swears this is THE place to come get your barbecue.  Drive-thru is doing a steady business the whole time we are there.  They're cooking on 2 Souther Pride pits using pecan wood... and doing a pretty good job of it.  Laverne comes over and talks with us... she's part of the Scholl Bros family and seems like good peeps.  

OTHER FARE (And they have a BUNCH of "other fare"):

Pintos - Standard, but nicely done... no spices detected but salt, however this is a very good bean.
Cole Slaw - Long strands of cabbage in a light sweet cream sauce. Purple cabbage and carrots add color. Fresh.
Potato Salad - Crunchy taters today.
Cheesy Potato Casserole is great!  I love this stuff.
Green Beans - Canned.  Skip 'em.
Pecan pie and Fried apple pie are both a very good way to finish a meal.
Potato Salad is 'mushed'.  Sweet up front, then tangy on the finish.
