Perry's BBQ in San Leandro

After reading Robert's post I had to try this place.

We got ribs, chicken, and links. They had no beef, and the ribs needed another 15 minutes to cook. I had time to wait, but you may want to call ahead to check on what's available. Sides we got were greens, beans, and batter-fried okra.

All the meats were very good. Chicken was both smoky and juicy, and my 9-yr. old daughter thought the sauce was good without being too spicy for her. Links were not as coarse-ground as Flint's (see the links thread below), but they still had plenty of space to soak up the sauce. Links were smoky with a black pepper overtone that was very good. Sauce was on the spicy side, but not as hot as the hot at E&J's or Flint's. The ribs were really good, definitely some of the best I've had in a while. Smoky, maybe a little too much fat left on some, but they had a great texture, IMHO. Even better were the rib tips that were included, which had almost no fat, lots of meat, and a great smoky flavor.

Greens were well cooked and tasty, beans were canned but spiced up in the kitchen and were fine. The okra was fried very well and was not greasy. Personally I'd prefer a stewed okra dish as the batter-frying seems to take away the okra character.
