Psychologists have shown that certain foods, among them barbecue, just plain make us happy. Who needs comfort food when we can have happy food?

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.
