On Thursday night, BPLJ and Pescado treated us to Gus's Barbecue (mainly because Pescado wanted to go to The Cigar Sultan next door). Mr. Monkey and I had a great time with BPLJ and Pescado. Lots of laughs and good times!
I must say, however, that the restaurant itself was rather disappointing.
And that's saying a lot because the Monkeys love barbecue.
Gus's has been around since 1946, yet the place smacked of chainy-ness.
Dinner started off well. The shredded onion strings were a mountain of greasy goodness.
Dr. Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ last weekend (and those were take-out, no less). The accompanying sweet potato fries and creamed corn were better than everything else we had. Thank God.
I will not be going back, but I did enjoy catching up with my dear former co-workers. Thanks! It was great seeing you guys!
