I tried Chief’s BBQ today since it’s close to my office. I’ve heard people talk about it and in general had good things to say about it.
I tried the two meat plate with Brisket and Pork ribs. The plate also cam with 3 sides, I chose Frid Okra, Potato Salad, and Corn on the Cob. when the plate came out it also had a couple of slices of Texas Toast, a cup of BBQ sauce, pickles, and onions. Not a bad quantity of food.
The brisket and the ribs both had a really tasty bark on them. The smoke ring penetrated pretty deep as well. The problem was that the meat was dry on both the ribs and brisket. It wasn’t tough per se, but it wasn’t tender either. It had a great smoke flavor though. The sides weren’t really anything to write home about either. They were all decent, but nothing outstanding. The BBQ sauce was good, and it seemed to have a cumin flavor to it. One thing of note is that they had sweet tea.
All in all, I’ll probably eat here again because of the proximity to my office, but I’ll probably just be ordering a chopped beef sandwich. The traditional BBQ staples are just “meh” to me.
