Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, Denver, CO Report #163

  I was in Denver, Colorado, with no car, and hungry.  I saw a shopping and restaurant area a few blocks from my hotel so I headed that way on foot.  I saw a bunch of fast food chain places, like Sonic, IHOP, Smashburger, etc., but I avoid chains if possible.  Then I saw this… Continue reading Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, Denver, CO Report #163

Blue Oak BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #147

I love the way this place is laid out.  You walk in, grab a menu, order your food, then have a seat and they’ll bring it to your table.  You can sit inside in air conditioned comfort, or outside on a huge deck with bunch of picnic tables.  There are misting fans all over the… Continue reading Blue Oak BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #147

VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations.

Cochon, New Orleans, LA Report #10

Shane’s Rib Shack, Marrero, LA Report #6

This is one of the best BBQ joints in the New Orleans metro area.  In fact when I think BBQ this is the first place that comes to mind.  Besides sweet and unsweet tea they also have a peach iced tea that’s delicious, but very sweet.  I like to mix it half and half with… Continue reading Shane’s Rib Shack, Marrero, LA Report #6
