On a tip from a long time friend, the Texas Bar-B-Q trail lured me to Rooster's in Baytown, Texas for lunch.
Just looking at this sign makes me happy.
At first taste, the sauce was too vinegary, but before I knew what was happening, I was (practically) spooning that sauce in my mouth like a soup. It grows on ya'.
What you can't see in the photo is how good those ribs taste. The rub is sweet and spicy -- a perfect crunch on the outside and juicy melt-in-your-mouth meat on the inside. The chicken? In a word -- yum.
Yes, it was worth the drive.
Where next on the Bar-B-Q Trail? Suggestions?
