Smoke Daddy's Review of Hillsdale Bank Bar-B-Q | "Show us your pits"

I won't even sell somebody a barbecue unless they get cole slaw. If they want a barbecue and they don't want cole slaw, there's something wrong with that person.  It all goes together. You've got to have cole slaw and hush puppies with barbecue.

Smoke Daddy's Review of Hillsdale Bank Bar-B-Q

Everything rated above average.  Pork, Sauce, and Atmosphere were my favorites!

MAIN FARE:Hillsdale Bank spread

  • Brisket - Good texture and flavor.  Tender... nice.
  • Pork - Oh, now this is good stuff!
  • Pork Burnt Ends - OK, but oversmoked = bitter.
  • Rib - Exterior is a bit tough, but inside is tender and smokey!
  • Hot Link - First hot link of the tour (on the last stop). Hot dog with spice.

OTHER FARE:

Hillsdale Bank Cookbox

  • Corn Nugget - Good.
  • Beans - Sweet.  Very good with good meat content.
  • Potato Salad - Mustard based, with some vinegar
  • Slaw - Crunchy and good.
  • Sauce - Very good sauce. Nice balance of all ingredients.  Does not cover the flavor of the meat (unlike most in the KC area).
  • Hot Sauce - More worcestershire, vinegar, and heat

ATMOSPHERE:2005 BBQ Crew at the end of the trail

  • Out in the sticks + Old bank building + train caboose = GREAT!
  • Next to railroad tracks - evening train rolls by...
  • Only open Fri-Sun in the warm months
  • Female decor somewhat clashes with bank/RR themes
  • Talking about converting the back garden into a beer garden?
  • "All dine-in orders served dry!" - LIKE!
  • Family run operation by super nice folks
  • Greg seems quite knowledgeable about other area BBQ joints
