I'm huntin' down Jimmy Page...
My goal of searching out great BBQ restaurants has taken the usual backseat to various other adventures. Working, sleeping, paying bills... Nonetheless, the notion that there is some truly great Bar-B-Q out there is always in the back of my head, and the real problem is that I just need to get motivated.
Recently, our travels took us to an interesting place called Raydell's Redneck Bar-B-Q.
Seeing the trailer on the back end of this place, admittedly, gave me a bad feeling. Entering the place, however, was a different experience all together. It wasn't a dumpy assed dive like I had anticipated, but it was a cozy and nice looking family restaurant.
The food was first class Bar-B-Q all the way. The portions were huge, they tasted great, and the prices were extremely reasonable.
Kerrie had a pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and french fries. I went straight for the ribs. The food was really good. For the price I had expected less, so you can imagine my delight when they brought out a plate with so much pork that my side items came out separately.
It was a great meal, and very reasonably priced. Not at all what I was expecting, but hey... I like being wrong in these instances.
Thanks to Claire, Sue and Greg for recommending it!
