After tips from Yelp and Tablehopper (where was chowhound?!?), we went to Broken Record in Excelsior last night. While mainly a bar with an incredible selection of whiskeys, ryes, scotches, etc., there is a kitchen in back knocking out some great bbq sandwiches and other delicious food items.
We had a pulled pork sandwich and a bbq brisket sandwich. Both were great. I am sure some bbq sticklers will call fouls all over the place, but whatever, the sandwiches tasted great. The pork had a really tangy slaw (they even call it "tangy slaw") and a nice vinegary sauce. The brisket was cubed, not chopped and had a nice red sauce on it. The rolls are even homemade. We also had brussel sprouts and mac and cheese, both of which were very good (the brussel sprouts were better then the mac n cheese). Finally, we had vanilla bean pudding with pecan pie bits and bruleed bananas. Yum!
The kitchen is run by a young couple who have had previous stints at Boulevard, campton place, Firefly, Range and some other places. they also have oyster po boys, various sausages like rabbit, wild boar and alligator, and a few other things. We can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu.
