TASTE IT LA: Spring Street Smokehouse HICKORY BBQ SAUCE on...anything.
Carnies: OMG STOP WHAT YOUR DOING AND RUN DONT WALK TO SPRING STREET SMOKE HOUSE.
To think that all this time I was going to Chinatown for the Chinese food.
Don't get me wrong, I love me some Baby Blues BBQ "Big Blue" plate with okra and collard greens but I'm not sure I can ever go back after dinner at Spring Street Smoke House.
My date and I ordered the "The Kitchen Sink" for 2, spicy, with Mac-n-cheese (c'mon you know it,) baked beans, collard greens & cornbread. (No flash on the pics guys, didn't want to be obvious here.)
I'm seldom impressed or surprised but the spicy, smoky flavor of their BBQ sauce impressed me and I'm still talking about the amazing flavor of their homemade hickory BBQ sauce and the size portions of their tender cooked meats.
The restaurant was almost full when we arrived and, while the kitchen could have had timing issues with so many customers at once, the southern-grunge clad service was prompt and so was the food. POINTS for TIMING IN THE KITCHEN & sending out my MAC n CHEESE still hot n gooey.
The cornbread had a nice kick from the baked jalepenos but it was extremely dry, which was my only complaint. IRRELEVANT because their BBQ sauce WAS THAT GOOD. Hickory smoked for up to 18 hours. And the ribs? Baby-back or Beef... Ob. Sessed.
The casual-cozy dining area also features is a beer wall behind the bar boasting their many crafstman-style beer and wine options. Feeling bold I tried the Yeti Imperial Stout and yes it tastes just like it sounds, strong and like it will kick your *ss.
This is the perfect place to take the date you want to get messy with or the in-law that boastfully flashes their too sweet sauce recipe every 4th of July.
If your going EMAIL ME and if I'm in the area I'll meet you there. It's that good and I would love to feature your reactions bc I can't beilieve they only got 3 1/2 stars on Yelp!
