Finally found some good food that was not burger (Helvetia Tavern) or Indian (Swagat). I’ve tried a ton of BBQ joints around here and they’ve all disappointed in one way or another to the point that I never really cared to go back.
- Busters (…it’s only BBQ in name, execution is poor all around)
- Clay’s Smokehouse (not bad but they only use one sauce and too much of it)
- Slabtown Ribs & BBQ (It was.. just ok)
- Duke’s BBQ Pit (Smoked wings are nice the rest is hit or miss form “ok” to “bad”)
Podnah’s Pit BBQ is fantastic. The last post I made detailed why.
Screen Door - another nice place. The concept I think is better than the actual food but the sweet tea was the real deal and the chicken was done right. I think they have a little bit of an off concept of what red beans and rice should be but their mud pie made up for that.
I think, though, for my future chicken needs, I’ll be headed back to Pine State Biscuits. I can’t help it that I love the McIsley so much. Their fried green tomatoes are better than Screen Door’s as well.
