Uncle Frank's BBQ Again - Third Time Is A Charm!

CYL | Sep 25, 2005 03:38 AM

This is my third visit to and indulgence in Uncle Frank’s BBQ in Mountain View. This was the best and most enjoyable! How is that possible? Whereas I thought Uncle Frank’s ribs, briskets, and links were good, I thought that the brisket and links were kinda dry before. Turns out previously, the first two times, I had merely gotten take-outs to rush home and eat. I did not actually eat at Frank’s. The possibility that the stuff could have suffered a deteriorating dry-out effect did enter my mind, but I badly underestimated the extent. There is a significant drying out! This time, eating in and immediately at Uncle Frank’s, we found the ribs, brisket, links, everything was juicy, tender and succulent! I used to think that the ribs were the best – tasty and fall-off-the bones. Now I think the heretofore dry but now juicy eat-in brisket is equally as good. The eat-in seasoned fries were marvelous – crunchy on the outside soft inside. Take-out fries were, of course, mushy, no crunch eaten at home. A completely new outlook has opened up!

We also chanced to have the good fortune to meet up with RWCFoodie while at Frank’s tonight and had an interesting conversation exchange. RWCFoodie thought that the BBQ might be better at lunch than dinner, maybe more fresh? There were so much food at dinner that we were not able to finish it all. Looking at it from another angle, for lunch, also, the quantity will be more manageable while simultaneously the cost will be more economical respectively.
