I don't like food that's too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I'd buy a painting.

Smoke Daddy's Review of BBs Lawnside Bar-B-Que

My favorites were the ribs, sausage, and atmosphere.  Oh, and don't forget the awesome bread pudding! 

MAIN FARE:BBs Lawnside Spread

  • Brisket - Paper thin. Tender and moise enough to enjoy.  Flavor is OK...
  • Ribs - Nice color.  Will they taste as good as they look?   Well, I'm knawing at the bones.
  • Sausage - Very course grind with black pepper.  I like.  Casing snaps, but its not tough.  Italian seasonings here, but that doesnt matter.  Real good!
  • Pork - Tasty and not too greasy.  Not too much flavor in the crust/rub... its a little bland.
  • Burnt Ends - Fatty.  Second bite was more lean.  These are good.  A little spicy, but not overpowering

OTHER FARE:

BBQ Crew at BBs Lawnside

  • Beans - Overwhelming sweetness up front is balanced by the jalapeno spice on the finish.  Beans are soft.
  • Fries - Battered wedge fries.  Good and crisp with soft insides
  • Potato Salad - Soft taters. Creamy mustard based... standard recipe.
  • Sauce - Orange, translucent.  Good with a hint of cinnamon.  Hot version is a little better.
  • Bread Pudding Rocks!  Best bread pudding on the tour

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Big Parking Lot. Busy, bustling locationBBs Lawnside Pit
  • Long communal tables inside
  • Cold beer and live music
  • Blues on the jukebox when we walk in
  • Live music flyers and photographs as decor (reminds me of Antone's)
  • Granite pits.  Great history here.
  • Lindsay gave a great tour, and is the nicest guy!  He cooks over night... and all by feel.
