We took that ride yesterday to Desperados. I’m not one to got out for Q but I was impressed. The place looks great--very comfortable from the minute you walk in. Looks like a q joint. Nicely decorated but not overdone with western/cowboy motiff. The two gas fireplaces were a nice touch along with the antiuqe looking bowl sinks in the bathrooms.
First the sauce (three kinds) was on the table not on the meat. I had the combo platter a ½ rack of ribs and a brisket Sammie. MJ had a brisket Sammie, and the mrs and d had pulled pork. Mrs. Said Pork was good, juicy with good flavor but I wouldn‘t know personally because she would not share! But that’s ok; when she went to take some of MJ’s brisket he didn’t want to share either. MJ ate his whole Sammie. Brisket was excellent. Sides we tried included the famous corn bread with honey butter (mmmm), baked beans (very good with a bit of spice!) and mac and cheese (very creamy). As good as the food was, the boys were most impressed with the birch beer on tap and the trains--yes trains!--that went by periodically outside.
And of course, Shelly was a most gracious hostess, allowing the boys to tour the kitchen and see the smokers. So if you are looking for some of the best bbq around (second only to my backyard ) stop by desperados.
Now we can't wait for the guest pit master night.
