Goodman's BBQ - Perry

Coyote | Dec 7, 2003 07:34 AM

I was driving back from New Orleans, still stuffed with beignets and muffaletta's, but it WAS lunch time and the full parking lot including two State Trooper cruisers plus the sweet aromatic scent of wood lured me in. Goodman's is a no frills operation, one large room filled with wood bench booths, family owned and operated, with tough as nails granddaughters of the owner slinging the 'Q. Pork sandwich featured a nice soft hamburger bun, garlic bread another choice available, sliced meat with an impressive smoke ring, exceptionally lean yet moist, and great smoky flavor. Not a huge amount of pork, but adequate and good value for the price. Of the pair of sauces, preferred the milder mustardy one to the spicy, but both were good. Side order of coleslaw was just exceptional, very fresh and nearly sweet. Also enjoyed the fries, which were crusty and crunchy and close to what I'd describe as "seasoned" fries without being overly spicy.

Two large sandwiches, one order of slaw and one of fries for a grand total of $7.00.

Noted a sign over the register saying they'll smoke your meat (thawed) for 85 cents a pound.

2429 South Byron Butler Pkwy. (Hwy. 19 S.)
