    That sounds AWESOME!! I love some good BBQ. I dream about a place I went in San Diego called Phil’s BBQ. We were out there on our honeymoon and I had seen them on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives once (we made a list of places out there we saw on TV). They did NOT disappoint. I got what I saw on the show – the El Toro – which was a tri-tip sandwich. It was so chock full of meat that I had enough for 2 sandwiches! Btw, another great place in San Diego was Hodad’s – great burger joint.

    I’ve only ever had Texas BBQ by mail. I used to work for a company with outside sales reps and one lived in TX. He sent us a brisket once from one of his favorite local places ( don’t know the name) and it was pretty good, but probably would have been better if it hadn’t been FedEx’d to us! LOL

      My mouth is watering hearing about that place! Isn’t it awesome when you find something so great the memory stays with you for years? Have you been back to that BBQ place since the honeymoon?

        Unfortunately not! We don’t tend to get to take a lot of vacations (due to budgetary restrictions) so who knows the next time we’ll get to CA (we live in RI). We actually could only afford that trip (2 years after our wedding!) because one of our wedding gifts were the plane tickets. I love memories like that, definitely!

    I’m not a fan of barbecue, but I still think that place looks good!

      They had other stuff on the menu–like fish and sausage and chicken. They also had brunch! Now that sounds awesome!

      GO!!!! Hurry! It’s so good! You’ll wonder why you didn’t go sooner. I am!

    The best BBQ I have ever had was in Nashville at Jack’s BBQ. It almost made us cry. We couldn’t even speak to each other while we were eating. It doesn’t compare to anything we’ve had in Chicago. Granted we’ve never been to Texas but I’ve heard a lot about Franklin’s!
