I have always been a HUGE fan of Honey Bears. Recently, however, I found Kinfolks BBQ on Hayden and Thomas. Unbelievable BBQ and fantastic sides and deserts. Their skittlet cookie (similar to BJs, Oreganos and Zipps) beats anything I've had in town. If you've loved Honey Bear's forever like I have, you will cheat on her with Kinfolks. Oh yeah....ITS CHEAPER TOO!!
BEST BARBECUE RESTAURANT Phoenix 2006 - Honey Bear's BBQ
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We know it takes more than slammin' barbecue sauce to garner award-winning 'cue. That's why this 20-year-old joint with its huge portions and reasonable prices is our favorite grub spot. The succulent sauce ? a vinegar-based Tennessee-style blend of ketchup, sugar, liquid smoke, mustard, lemon juice, and secret spices ? is definitely off the hook, but its purpose is to bring out the juicy cuts of meat and not to cover up some below-grade stuff. Pork ribs and chicken dinners, each served with your choice of two sides such as Cowbro beans, coleslaw, potato salad, corn, or tossed salad, will most definitely tickle taste buds. You may kill a tree with all the napkins you use, but the face-stuffing mess is definitely worth it.
