If people leave your restaurant talking about how good your sauce is, you failed

Smoke Daddy's Review of Earl Quicks Bar-B-Q

Word is that quality has declined over recent years.  Our experience was sub-par.

MAIN FARE:Earl Quicks Spread

  • Brisket - Thin sliced, using another deli slicer.  Water/moisture on the cuts from a covered steam pan.  Piece off the top is tough, especially for being sliced so thin.  
  • Rib - Big ribs with the membrane on.  Smoky flavor with some bitterness present.  Mostly rendered.
  • Sausage - Sliced lengthwise and pan-fried.  Breakfast sausage spices.  Would be good with eggs.
  • Pork - See brisket.

OTHER FARE:

Earl Quicks Interior

  • Beans - Thick, sweet & smoky.  Good.
  • Macaroni Salad - Sweet & tangy. Cool.
  • Potato Salad - See Mac. salad.
  • Slaw - Creamy & sweet.  Crunch is gone, and the leaf is a little bitter.
  • Sauce - Cinnamon and nutmeg, with a kick.  Weird... but kinda like Christmas Wassail.  Reminds me a bit of Riscky's in Fort Worth.

ATMOSPHERE:

  • Joint-like drive up appeal with muy mucho hickory alongside the building
  • Fake brick wall-covering & bright orange formica booths
  • Jukebox
  • Very friendly lady behind the counter
