Granny and Papa's Smokehouse BBQ [Visalia]

PolarBear | Aug 26, 2007 10:36 AM

Twins Selena, Sabrena, and their mom, Helen, catered a large birthday celebration in Fresno yesterday for the family and did an outstanding job. I did a search on the CA board and didn't find anything about them. We had tender sliced tri-tip in a nice smoky BBQ sauce that was nicely restrained in its sweetness and tomato flavor. Baked chicken was seasoned to perfection and fall off the bone tender. Sides included a nice green salad, pasta salad, and well prepared pilaf, but the hit was Mama's green beans with bacon that could make a meal in themselves.

GP's is located in Young's Market at 3535 W. Walnut (at Demaree). 559-733-3434, online at:

Open Monday thru Saturday, 10:30 AM to 8:00 PM

Slight disclaimer: These wonderful folks have been officially family since my godson's wedding this past spring, however, I have no interests in or connections to the business whatsoever, other than finding ways to sample their fare more often. The pork ribs, collard greens and mac 'n cheese are at the top of my list. Look forward to hearing some reports from the hounds.
