Review

Zero and I eat lunch together one day out of almost every week. Reptile used to join us, but then he started actually working, or something. A couple of weeks ago, a couple of my co-workers came along for lunch when I was meeting Zero at a new BBQ place that had opened up on 121. "Cowboys BBQ", I believe is the name.

I guess it's semi-famous and this is their 2nd (?) location. When we went a couple weeks ago, there were a lot of cars in the lot, but the store had not actually opened yet. We were about a week early. Yesterday, Zero and I decided to try again. I'm never one to turn down BBQ.

I got ribs and the sausage. Zero got ribs and the chicken. I also requested pinto beans, but our waitress said that the beans were really not the best and Id be happier with something else. So I went for the black-eyed peas.

Overall, the restaurant was not crowded. Im guessing not many people know it is open yet. What struck me was that most of the wait staff was older than I was expecting. Maybe two of them in their 20s, and the rest 40+. And it looked like they had some space to add a retail shop or something.

When our food arrived, everything looked good. But if I was an actually critic, I think I would describe both the ribs and the sausage as 'timid'. There really wasn't much of a kick to it. And I had to ask twice for ketchup for my fries. They also brought me the dreaded pinto beans instead of my requested peas. I'm not sure how that happened since the waitress was pretty opposed to me getting the beans. She also asked me of I would like a wetnap to clean my hands, and then never returned with one.

Will we go again? Probably. The ribs tasted to me like they were cooked so as to not offend anyone. Fairly tepid, overall. I'll give them one more chance, but if they don't shore it up, it's back to Red, Hot & Blue or Outlaws for me.

Yeah I'd give that place a 3 out of 5 stars.

Outlaws is great, I'm convinced the more hole in the wall a BBQ is the better it is.
