This little shop might be a bit hard to miss on Bell Blvd. I can’t blame you at night, with the bars at full swing trying to attract all the real life Ke$hias, can be distracting time to time. But nothing gets past this nose, once you hit the corner , you can get a whiff of some smokey goodness. This Ferret probably gonna eat well tonight.
Interior is nicely decorated with memories of BBQ.
Menu Boards are up over the counter displaying the many items. Ready to eat and ready to cook food items are displayed proudly.
The fridge case displays all the made food that can be reheated or server cold.
BBQ Brawler is a sandwich that basically from the description, has everything including the kitchen sink. The sandwich overall is very good and I would order again. Also note again, you should be very hungry or looking to share this sandwich. Common problem with this type of sandwich is, some of the flavors may get lost, I not sure if anything got lost, there is so much of it all.
Side View of the BBQ Brawler.
Chicken and pulled pork, both tender and smoky no surprise there. Overall very bbq meats with the jambalaya
rice that has a nice little tomato kick to it.
Ribs have a nice thick smoky flavor. The meat is not fall off the bones, but they are tender and juicy. The ribs do have a bite to them, from time to time, that something I enjoy. Sometimes I don’t want my meat to feel like a jello mush. The side corn has a nice sweet buttery flavor to them, also.
Rabbid Dogs, two all beef dogs, mustard, onions, bacon, kraut, and a sliced pickle. Another monster creation made with love. Sometimes you want a little this or that with your dog, but it won’t fit. In this case, you have two dogs deep fried, cut in half and arranged out lengthwise. Now there is is plenty of room for the other toppings that go well with the hotdog.
Famous Steak Sandwich Skirt Steak, Mozzarella, and Garlic Bread is the specialty of the sandwich here. The meat is thick and tender and has been well cooked. The flavors of the meat are of a symphony of beautiful beefy smokiness, cheese and garlicky goodness. It a fav of mine here.
Hot Dog with mustard and Kraut. This all beef hot dog has a nice snap, topped with the grain mustard and kraut, gives this dog all the favor it needs. Remember, these are plain butcher dogs, you will generally need toppings to them. These type of hot dogs are milder in spices compared to kosher dogs like Hebrew National.
Corn Bread here is surprisingly very good. I used to think you had to go down south to get some good corn bread. This bread’s is not overly grainy, mushy, or sweet. It had the right balance of everything. Cream of spinach is well made here, not overly creamy as many places might do.
Fries here were a disappointment. They come out greasy and soggy. Not quite sure what happened here, but if it was a mishap, I will update if they are redeemed to a crispy stature.
BLT sandwich with smoked bacon has tons of smoky flavor. This is a case where a little bit goes a long way. If you crave a thick cut of firm bacon you will love this one.
