After much celebration from some quarters, our Goner barbecue correspondent visits A & R Barbecue on Elvis Presley Blvd.
The Verdict: it's all right if you're en route to Graceland or the AmVets Thrift store and forgot to stop at either Payne's (Lamar or E.P. Blvd) or Big S (just up the street off McLemore). Tender pork, generous sandwich, crispy fries. I got hot and it wasn't, really. Sauce was sweet and more subtle, more of an Interstate/ Neely's style.
Lots of stuff on the menu to try including hotwings, hamburgers, smoke sausage, ribs, etc. big space to sit. They were doing steady take-out lunch business while i was there around 1 pm, so the locals like it.
other opinions welcome.
