I heard about Dat’s from some buddies at work and decided today was the day for some Q. Don’t let the outside of the building fool you they’ve got some pretty solid BBQ going on. It’s cafeteria style with a soul food feel, the greens looked awesome.
My order: The Quarterback (2 meats, 2 sides); Sliced brisket and Ribs, I got a Hot Link on the side. My sides were Corn on the Cob and Green Beans. Each plate comes with your choice of a roll or corn bread.
Ribs (Spares not trimmed): Small smoke ring, real good flavor and moistness. Had a nice charcoal flavor to the bark.
Brisket (point): Very moist, nice thick smoke ring, big bark with lots of flavor. Again the brisket also had a nice charcoal flavor to the ample bark.
Hot Link: Standard jalapeño flecked, good flavor, little to no smoke taste.
Corn on the Cob: The buttery water bath it was in helped.
Green Beans: Run of the mill.
The cornbread was real good, riding the line between dry and moist.
The brisket and ribs were both excellent choices. I’ll be back to try the pulled pork as I hear it’s another good choice.
