Rib-Tickler

Pig flies to Mesa

The cornbread is okay, though I'd prefer it with a crisper crust, perhaps baked a bit longer. Desserts are hit or miss. My personal faves were the pecan pie and the sweet potato pie, the filling of the latter being so creamy you could almost pass it off as cheesecake. BC needs to do something about the peach cobbler, though. It's blah as is, not sweet enough, and the crust doesn't taste completely done. "Sugar biscuits" are hunks of fried dough rolled in cane sugar. I liked them, though not enough to choose them over the pies next time I go.

Because go again I will. The Mesa location does have a grill section that the Tempe location doesn't, but basically the draw is the same: the barbecue. With both outlets in operation, you could say Greater Phoenix is finally a "big city" for BBQ at long last.
