I am so bummed out!
My daughter has been stationed at Ft Campbell KY since early 2007 and I have visited a lot, especially last year to help out my sil with their baby when she was in Iraq. Anyway, I kept driving by Old South BBQ and wanted to stop by, but for one reason or another, it was the wrong time of day, sil was making dinner, etc.
Well, they are moving in the not to distant future and I told them that this visit, we were going to eat there. The place has good reviews on YahooLocal and I really wanted to taste their bbq. We actually tried to go one other time, when my oldest son and his wife were visiting from Abu Dhabi, but there were ice storms. :-(
Anyway, we finally went and I got a combo plate with ribs, chicken and pulled pork as well as slaw and burgoo, which was also rated highly. The waitress warned me that the burgoo was hot, but my sil said try it and if it is too hot, he'd eat it. He later did and said it was very good.
I never did get to the chicken as I was too full, but the ribs, oh my gosh, the ribs! They were so good, probably the best I have ever had. They really didn't even need to be sauced they were so good, and tender, oh so tender. I wished I had got a rib plate they were so fabulous! The pulled pork was very good too, but it is the ribs I will be thinking about.
The other night my sil said he kept thinking about those ribs and really wanted to go back, but my daughter wasn't in a bbq mood and so they ended up at the Olive Garden. Not a very good trade off if you ask me.
I'm hoping to visit again in the next month or so and eat there again.
