Finding a good barbecue spot is really difficult. Usually, I can hit up Lucille’s and my BBQ fix is pretty much met. But the fact that one can get that BBQ anywhere, it doesn’t become something special. When I walked into Scottie’s, it exuded a BBQ restaurant to its core.
The beef ribs we had were great. Though somewhat burnt (maybe a little too much), the smokey flavor was prevalent throughout the meat. I was impressed with the beef brisket — it was juicy beyond words. It tasted really good with the andouille sausage. My favorite was the pulled pork. Laying on the sauce over the pork, it was very tasty. It had a light smokey flavor and
Every smokehouse barbecue restaurant has to have their sauce. BBQ is nothing without a good sauce. Scottie’s had 4 different kinds to choose from, and surprisingly, they were all distinct and really good. There was the original, smokehouse rub, spicy, and Louisiana. Usually when restaurants have a plethora of different sauces, there is always that one or two that doesn’t taste good — theirs were all amazing.
Along with our meal, we had a bunch of sides. Cornbread, collard greens, mashed potatoes, mac n’ cheese. Name it, we had it. The most memorable? The cowboy mac n’ cheese. This was mac n’ cheese with beans on top. This was interesting and it went really well together.
Above all, the people there were really friendly. Servers always asked us how we were doing, and they even changed the channel to the basketball game we were aching to watch. The food and customer service really made me comfortable here. Good BBQ with the basketball game on, what more can I ask for?
