ssweeney's Review of Billys Old Fashion Barbecue‎

Main Fare:

  • My first slice (sauced) seems to be moist and fully rendered, with some bitterness noticed in the bark.  Second piece (without sauce) is chewy, not fully rendered. and more bitter. 
  • Rib is unnaturally hot - reheat?  There is some creosote in the rib... evident even underneath the sauce.  Second piece seems modestly better.
  • House made sausage has a good meaty flavor, and a nice spice.  This is a good sausage!

Other Fare:

  • Mustard based potato salad with lumps of potato. Good.
  • Baked beans are standard fare, with some Texas Pete added for zip.  Sweet + Hot.

Atmosphere:

  • Billy's sister-in-law is working the counter.  She says they've been here "20 something years".
  • Billy has to step out back for a radio spot.  His spot airs on the radio while we are in the front room.
  • Everything here comes sauced by default... just FYI.
  • Locals must carry-out their barbecue, because the dining area is in need of some repairs.  Double-Boner points out that there is a difference between a joint with "character" and a joint with years of neglect.
  • After finishing the radio spot, Billy is enjoying a beer while getting ribs ready for the dinner hour.
