Sunday February 3 cont.
My final stop was C & K Barbecue
I noticed that the sign has a #3 listed after the word barbecue. Did there used to be three of them?
I got there a little early and had to wait outside until they opened at noon. The one woman I was talking to said that she was picking up bbq for her sick friend and then she had to be in Illinois by 1:00 to play bingo! So when the doors finally opened, we let her go first.
One of the options on the menu here is the pig ear sandwich and although I consider myself a somewhat adventurous eater, I'm not quite that adventurous! Still, I did order the combo dinner, which is snoots (spelled snouts on the menu board) and rib tips
along with sides of baked beans
and potato salad.
I have to admit, the snoots looked nothing like I thought that they would,
although I'm not really sure what I was expecting. They have a somewhat crispy exterior (I'm assuming they are fried) and really didn't taste too bad. Still, I only ate two of them and I much preferred the delicious rib tips. The thin, sweet barbecue sauce was especially good and they give you four pieces of white bread to mop up the sauce. I did buy a bottle of the sauce to take home.
The baked beans didn't make much of an impression, but the potato salad was rather odd. It had more of a consistency of whipped potatoes, with smaller chunks of potato in it and was quite good.
I washed it all down with an orange soda.
By the way, everything is take-out and I ate mine in my car in the parking lot.
After finishing my meal, I drove straight to the airport and was home by the second quarter of the Super Bowl.
Thanks again to everyone for reading this trip report!
