BBQ in Boca Raton

Just thought I'd share with you a place that I went to this week while on business. I was driving from Ft. Lauderdale to Boca Raton and at exit 44 on I-95 was a sign for Redwood's BBQ. I thought why not?! I had the pulled pork platter with beans and corn on the cob.

The pork- very tasty with a little smokiness to it, not overpowering. Moist and tender with no gristle or fat to be found anywhere. The interesting thing was that the restaurant had six sauces you could put on your selection of meat. I sampled them all. (I don't care too much for mustard or vinegar based sauces-so the N.C. and "Southern" sauces were out. That left the Memphis, Texas, Hot, and Betcha can't eat this one! Well, the Memphis was as advertised, sweet and tangy. A little too sweet for me. But still tasty. The Texas sauce didn't impress me too much. They claimed that it was a little spicy. Maybe for someone from Texas or N.C., but this good ol' boy from Tampa thought it was wimpy, as was the Hot. The Betcha Can't eat this one was by far their best one in my opinion. Spicy and tangy.

The beans- intersting that they put granny smith apples in the beans. It gave them a taste that I've never tasted before. A little bitter with the spiciness of the sauce used in the beans. Overall, worth eating again.

Corn-on-the-cob- The menu said they grilled the corn and I guess that's what they did. It just seemed that the corn could have been of a sweeter type with summer just passing. I like sweet corn. I especially LOVE grilled corn on the cob.

Overall, if I'm back that way down south again, I will visit Redwood's. Anyone else with their opinions?
