Barbecue-restaurants checklist for selecting the best









BigAl likes to eat well. BigAl is big because he works out with bbq.

Good barbecue-restaurants serve heavy size portions and for takeout that is major weight and strength training!

Bbq-joints reviewed here are guaranteed to make you salivate and come back for more-only the best barbecue-restaurants get on my review list...

What I look for in a barbeque-restaurant?-What You Should look for too!

Bbq-joint-reviews -the Masters Criteria and list of the best bbq-restaurants I have been to recommend and lists. I have over the last 10 years piled up quite a few airplane miles searching for the best bbq-joints in the USA.

My criteria is very simple:

I ask the local working towns folks with pickup trucks,fireman,truck drivers and police for the best barbecue restaurants when I visit a new state or new town on all my trips.

I look for-

1.a crowded parking lot and lots of take out on a friday night or weekend.

2.Lots of police and firetrucks outside during the weekday-the local police and fireman work hard and eat well

3.tractor trailer trucks parked outside the barbecue-restaurant long distance drivers always eat well-my cousin is one and I've always eaten well where he eats

4.smoke and great barbecue smell that you can smell one block away-just follow the smell

5.Giant cups of Ice tea with free refills

6.Big wooden tables with butcher block paper to wrap your take out

7.People coming out with the satisfied grin of a great meal on their face and with BBQ sauce Stains on their face and shirts!

8.Meat by the pound availabe for takeout

9.No Mercedes or BMWS parked in the parking lot

10.no valet service

11.self service is a plus

12.The waiter or waitress doesn't offer to grind pepper on my food 13.The staff treat you like their best friend and talk to you and explain bbq stuff they are proud off.

13.Customers are not afraid to use toothpicks at the table or come out with barbecue sauce spilled on their shirts

14.People eat with their fingers and lick their fingers.

15. no one is dressed in cocktail gowns or three piece suits

16.The classy drink is a bud or milkshake not 1921 snobbay wine for 10 dollars a glass

The Stateline El Paso Texas one of the Seven BBQ wonders of the World


Bbq-joint-reviews El Paso One of my favorites. I commute between Phoenix and El paso by airline just to go here-people in Texas do not know how lucky they are to have this bbq-restaurant.

This restaurant is one of my favorites, you know El Paso is closer to Phoenix then it is to its own capital of Austin.

This restaurant is located on the border of 2 states I kid you not when you're in the restroom you can walk between New Mexico and Texas.

Get the hot guts,brisket,ribs and the several bbq sauces and pig out!

I could live here for the rest of my life and be happy-

Please tell me about your best restaurants at the botto of the page and when you have visited this holy place.
