Phil's Barbeque - Good Ribs

orangewasabi | Jan 31, 2007 12:32 PM

I've had a wicked craving for BBQ and since going to Kansas City is not in the cards, we went to Phil's -- I hadn't been in a looong while.

Gotta say, very pleasant surprise. The ribs were more tender than I expected, better than most of the ribs at the Burlington Ribfest. And I really liked the (regular) sauce, it wasn't too sweet.

The beans were amazing! Big chunks of meat in them too.

We also had the chicken and the pulled pork -- for BBQ chicken the chicken was pretty good, but really, ordering chicken at a BBQ place is a waste of bites. We were a bit bummed with the pulled pork, this is usually our favourite, and it wasn't quite brilliant. Also, didn't so much love the coleslaw -- that was too sweet and too watery.

We'll definately go back for ribs & beans. (now if they would only make burnt ends, I'd be over the moon)
