Just like Moses and his people wandered the desert, I've been traveling the back roads of this country on my own journey to the Barbecue Promised Land.  I'd have taken better notes had I known I'd be writing a book.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Taylor Cafe


MAIN FARE:Taylor Cafe Entrance

  • Ribs - Big spare ribs... Damn, those are good!  Smoky, nearly fall-off-the-bone-tender.  Melt in your mouth goodness!  Must... stop... eating... rib.
  • Brisket - Slices cut from the 'moist' end of the brisket.  Tender and flavorful with a little salt on the finish.  This is good stuff.  Nice smoke ring: doesn't explode with smoke, but a good smoke/meat balance.
  • Sausage - Firm and [black] peppery.  Pork/beef mix?  Either too lean or cooked too long today - is kind of dry.  I can't decide... My mind keeps wandering back to that rib!

ATMOSPHERE:Taylor Cafe Counter

  • Hole in the wall, but has a long history here
  • Right next to the tracks, and a train rolls by as we arrive
  • Stools at the counter, but we moved to a table for "family-style" service
  • Folks are all friendly and service is good
