Sugar House BBQ

As I've mentioned before, there is nothing my husband and I love to eat more than barbecue. Since yesterday was the 4th of July, it seemed like no better occasion to dine on true American cuisine. My parents were in town for a few hours and to celebrate, we headed to our FAVORITE BBQ joint of all time, Sugar House BBQ. Of all the places we've tried, this one is still the no-contest, hands-down winner.

One thing I love about Sugar House BBQ is that all of their meat comes sans sauce so you can add as much or as little or as many combos as you want. Obviously, I make my own mess of sauce, but they have several to choose from: Original (so good!), Southern Vinegar, Louisiana Hot, and Carolina Mustard (the best!).

I have never had a bad meal there, but my top pick is their pulled pork. I got a platter with that, some steamed veggies, and a new menu item: Buffalo Chicken.
The pulled pork was phenom as always, and I really liked the Buffalo Chicken, too, even though it was slightly more oily and a tad greasier than I usually prefer to eat things. I thought it had just the right kick of cayenne, but my mom's eyes popped out of her head a little when she tried it, so beware if your taste buds are particularly sensitive (also beware that they only serve the Buffalo Chicken on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so don't get your hopes up if you come another day).

Hubs got the ribs as usual which are oh so delicious and not at all fatty which is quite an anomaly
. Another great thing about this restaurant is that they have tons of sides to choose from. I always get the steamed veggies, and you can see on Dustin's plate, he got mashed potatoes and stuffing, but they also have roasted potatoes, cucumber salad, coleslaw, baked beans, collard greens, potato salad and each entree comes with cornbread too. I'm not a fan of cornbread in general, but my sister loves it and always leaves with a stack of little bread from me and D.

I definitely recommend this place in the event that you ever decide to embark on you own 'Que Adventures. It was the perfect way to celebrate the US of A, and even better that I have some perfectly patriotic leftovers for lata. :)
