Welcome back T-Gang and hello to anyone else dropping by. Today's post is about a new place DH and I stopped and had lunch at today (Monday here). We had heard it had some descent BBQ and thought we would give it a try...........being BBQ competitors.....and loving OUR BBQ.....it is sometimes interesting to eat it at a restaurant.........sometimes!!!
Pit BBQ is always the best.....in my book....and the windows bragged on it being pit BBQ!
We were almost finished with our lunch (it was huge...both plates) and I have to admit......IT WAS GOOD!! I will defiantly go back to Dickey's BBQ. Everything was cooked perfect and the taste was spot on. We each had a beer......gasp! Yes, a beer just sounded good with BBQ.....we also had small glasses of water. The drinks are for Elizabeth and the T-gang for T stands for Tuesday
I had the rib plate with green beans and coleslaw sides.......I was finished by this photo....LOL DH had a 3 meat plate........brisket, pulled pork and German sausage. His two sides were baked beans and macaroni and cheese........needless to say we did get a to-go box for all the left overs.....*grin* That is a couple different BBQ sauces in the small cups....they have three: Hot and spicy (not really) regular and sweet. I ended up mixing the hot n spicy and the sweet together.
So while DH (way back there in the plaid shirt) was finishing I got up and took some photos......well, ALL but the ones of our lunch. It was a nice clean place, but not really big and country music was playing, and the people working there were top notch.....do they still say that?? When they heard we had not been in before, they gave us a sample of their turkey and a rib to share, before we even ordered.
It is more like fast food, in that you have to walk up and order, then take you plates to a table, but only THAT part, cause GOOD BBQ is always low and slow!!
This is a picture of how the plate (?) comes. It is really a small metal tray with clean paper on it.......cause you are supposed to eat BBQ with your fingers! BUT there were some plastic eating utensils to get the sides into your mouth.....*grin*
This is NOT one of our plates.....a gentleman set his lunch down and went to get some sauce, and.....well I WAS just standing there........so I took a picture of it.....LOL
He was over here, the BBQ sauces are barely in the picture on the faaaarrr left.
An other young man was picking up some grub and asking me what I had had, it was his first time there too, and I got a picture of their to-go bags......I think they are neat looking.
A closer look at their menu.....a little pricy, but the food was really good.
The sides and misc. stuff
They even have 4 table outside, but today was to chilly, with threatening clouds over head, but at least there isn't any snow..........sorry all of you that are buried in it!!
So what else has been going on since last we met?? I learned how to make box cards and have three to share in my next post. They are Valentines for the grandies in San Diego and will need to be mailed shortly.........can you believe it is almost Valentine's Day??? I really need to go take down my Christmas cards from over the bar. (I always forget them).
I also learned to make an expanding card. It is for my DIL, who's birthday is Valentine's Day too!! The big 4-0 this year! I'll post it with the box cards, but right now I'm going to run into the dinning room and take DOWN the Christmas cards........LOL!!
