Smoke Daddy's Review of A and M Grill

Joint: 

<<Update: It looks like A&M Grill closed for good in the summer of 2011.>>

There's nothing like the smell of barbecue in the morning!  Unfortunately, I don't think our pork was cooked fresh today.  It was good, but outshined by the pups, slaw, and other fresh sides on the menu.

MAIN FARE:A&M Spread

  • Chopped - Finely chopped with a good mix of meat.  Nice flavors here, although the texture was a bit mushy.
  • Sliced - Chunks that pull into long strings of meat.  Pink smoke ring is evident.  Good flavor with a little chew.  The darker meat is rich, and almost velvety in texture.  Very good.
  • Baby Back Ribs - Meat is falling off the bones.  Not quite as smoky as the pork, and covered with a bold "Heinz 57-ish" sauce.

OTHER FARE:

A&M Ribs

  • Slaw - Pink. Medium chop, with fresh leaf.  Vinegar dressing, with a touch of cream.  Black pepper.  This is really good!
  • Hush Puppies - Oniony (is that even a word?).  Fresh. Sweet. Good.  Like 'em!
  • Sweet Potato - Baked and served with brown sugar. 
  • Okra - Fresh, with a nice spice in the crispy batter.  Very good.
  • Potato Salad - Bland, mustard-based variety with egg.  Good.

ATMOSPHERE:A&M Woodpile

  • Here since 1947, and started as a gas station BBQ
  • Lineage can be traced to Warner Stamey
  • Hodge-podge of buildings - cinder block, brick, etc.
  • Diner Feel - Folks eating pancakes when we arrive
  • Local coffee shop - serves the social function of a DQ in small Texas towns
  • Using flats from the furniture mills as fuel source
