Sweet Cheeks annoys me because, as a Texan, I find their BBQ way too damn expensive and not good enough to justify it.
|And I did come back for them, but they got bigger and less impressive. They're no longer perfectly moist but a little too fluffed out, overworked. Damnit. The honey butter is still good.|
Left to right:
Sweet and sour: a bit too sour
Ginger jalapeño: good
|Fried Green Tomatoes ($7) - Fried Green Tomatoes: They come with a very dill-heavy jalapeno ranch that was pretty tasty, but the green tomatoes themselves were not ripe enough.|
Fried okra ($7): I do so appreciate the long pieces.
Jalapeño ranch: They actually charge you $1.50 for ranch. It's good, but that's a bit steep for a side of ranch.
|Heirloom Baked Beans: These are good, and they're well-stocked with meat.|
1 Texas-sized Wing: Two wings came, so apparently even the number "one" is bigger in Texas. Good smoke flavor, a little chewy, really large... hormones?
The brisket sandwich ($12) was nice and moist. Just add a little salt.
