I would a whole lot rather you taste the flavor of the meat before you put anything on it. Taste the time and energy that went into it.

ssweeney's Review of Dons Barbeque

Tour: 
Joint: 

MAIN FARE

  • Rib - Best rib on the tour so far.  Just a light rubbing of spices on the exterior... nice.
    NOTE: A touch of creosote keeps this item from rating higher
  • Brisket - Good flavor.  "Naked."  Tender meat, but not moist.
    NOTE: A touch of creosote keeps this item from rating higher
  • Sausage - Eckrich.
  • Hot Link - Bologna texture, with a burn that grows...

OTHER FARE

  • Potato Salad - Mustard based, but sweet.
  • Cole Slaw - Crispy and fresh. KFC style.
  • Okra - Nice touch of home-cookin' here.
  • Pintos - Very basic, but solid.
  • Sauce - Heavy worchestershire.
  • Banana Pudding - "Mom's" banana puddin'
  • Peach Cobbler was right out of the oven.

ATMOSPHERE

  • New building, so we are a bit skeptical upon arrival.  Then we learned that the old place burned, so we know this place has some colorful history.
  • Concrete floor - easy to clean.
  • Nice lady behind the counter, and we recieve good, attentive service.
  • Finally a solid joint on the Red River Tour!
