American BBQ Rowley MA--Infomaniac was right

Not a ton of time to post this morning, but I did want to report that in my eternal quest for chicken and BBQ (not necessarily in that order), American BBQ in Rowley (Rte 1A) was a highlight.

My cousin ordered a meat sampler plate--pork, ribs, brisket. The ribs were awesome--thick and tangy sweet. The brisket was excellent. Thick slabs, very tender.

I order a roasted half-chicken and I was not disappointed. It was excellent. Cooked to perfection with delightful skin/sauce.

Here's the thing, though--what makes BBQ joints for me is not just the carnivorous stuff (though I love it) but the sides. Here, you could get ALL the sides you love (unlike Q Smokehouse in methuen, my prev. review)--greens, sweet potatoes, etc., plus a NICE dessert menu and (here's the best part)--it was pretty cheap!!!! I mean, drinks, sides, meat, dessert for my cousin and I for the low twenties. I paid that for basically meat and coleslaw at the Q in Methuen.

The set up is kind of like Bub's in Sunderland--self serve, so it gets crowded, but I didn't mind. Definitely, this place is worth a trip.

Thanks Infomaniac--didn't get to Mexico Lindo in Methuen (too full) but I will.
