There rarely seems to be a correlation between barbecue competition prowess and great restaurant barbecue

ssweeney's Review of Crosstown Bar-B-Q

 MAIN FARE:T-Bone with Crosstown Staff

  • Brisket - Cut from the 'high', 'moist', or fatty side of a  fresh brisket.  Slices are marbled and tender.  Not too smoky, though...
  • Ribs - Cut from a fresh rack. Mmmm good.  Great flavor lives here!  Some sweetness present on the finish.  Subtle flavors... very nice!  Meat is a little on the fatty side.
  • Sausage - Good flavor.  Loosely packed, with a subtle spice.  Nice!

OTHER FARE:

  • Sauce - Sweet, red, and kinda thin.  Doesn't cover the flavor of the meat
  • Potato Salad - Mustard/Creamy style.  Firm chunks of potatoes, but consistency is a little soupy.
  • Beans - OK.  

ATMOSPHERE:Crosstown Pit Boss

  • Down-home folks - very nice!  They make us feel welcome and T-Bone shares some brewskis
  • Brand new corrugated tin building; sparce decor
  • Bigger than original, but farther from the tracks
  • Meat served from foil and steam trays
  • Offset pit using oak wood
  • Too new - felt a little sterile
