Just wondering what people have tried and who to stay away from. We are going tonight.

Just got back. Had Aussies which were pretty good. The spicy sauce was fairly hot. Ribs were very tender. Also Bourbon Q. Ribs weren't as good, but sauce was fantastic. Don't know which kind because it was already slathered on there. And stop in at Great Basin and get a tall Icky.

Went Friday night. The one next to the Chicago ribs (From Texas, can't remember the name), the Bourbon Q and the Texas Thunder were all very good.

The Bourbon Q had the best sauce IMHO. I bought a bottle of what they said they put on there, just ask the woman working the stand, she was very helpful. About $5 - $6 a bottle for sauce there.

i went Thursday night and tried a few places.....Armadillo WIlly's on the west end had the best fall off the bone meat that I tried. The others had to be chewed off. I plan to go again on Monday afternoon for the closeout specials I have been told are rampant then.

I stopped by famous daves and the aussies. They were both very good.

The aussie corn bread was awesome

Went back again today. Checkered pig was excellent. Their hot sauce was top notch. Not too spicy though. Then to Rasta Joes. Best tender ribs I had all weekend. Sauce was very good too. I liked the Island Flame the best. Probably head back tomorrow for the third day in a row!!

Just ate at Butchs. Not impressed, they were pretty dry. Sauce was good but the ribs were sub par

Went on Saturday and just got back tonight...will probably go tomorrow as well. I don't see the thrill of Bone Daddy's. Their line is the longest by far, and I didn't understand why. I thought Razorback's or Carson City BBQ had better ribs and better sauce but YMMV. Kinder's had some good ribs as well.
I don't normally dig much 80's rock, but Asia was pretty cool. That Palmer guy was recommended by a guy at work and one of his drum solos rocked.

One of the only bad parts is because of Anheuser-Busch's clout, you have to walk your ass all the way down Victorian to get some beer from Great Basin (if I'm paying ~$5-$7 per beer, it better damn well be GOOD beer).

Parking is a BITCH. I might go tomorrow when everything is cheap (before closing).

I'll park in the railyard and walk over.

I was going to offer my 220 at a smoking deal....perhaps Ill rethink the price.

Hell yes!!! I hit up the cookoff last Friday afternoon. Lines were less than 5 mins long and I had some of the best grub! Bone daddys was the way to go for sure!
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 5:51:52 PM EDT
We tried to go down to bone daddys but right as we got in line they ran out of ribs:(
