Monday Afternoon - Eat at Joe's BBQ
We saw Eat at Joe's on the way north through Wikieup. While in Vegas I checked Roadfood and found this old thread
that was posted by Joe himself. What the heck, we decided that Joe's was our lunch stop on the return trip to Phoenix.
Eat at Joe's seemed to have a lot of regulars, but our waitress Maria (second from left) treated me and Bobbi like old friends.
I ordered the MoJoes, a smoked pork sausage (better known as a fattie
in BBQ-speak), which was loaded with large chucks of garlic. Very tasty. The white beans with brisket were kind of bland until I added salt and pepper. Still, I thought the pasta salad was the best of the sides that we ordered.
Of course Bobbi ordered the better of the entrees. This is her Heaven on a Bun Sandwich, a mix of pulled pork, shredded brisket and barbecue sauce. The mixture of the smoked meats was close to heaven. One of the better barbecue sandwiches in my memory. She doesn't have much to say about her sides.
Before we could leave, Bobbi and Maria started speaking orgasmically about pies. Alas, Joe's does not serve pies, but Maria talked us into trying the homemade peach ice cream that they serve. It wasn't made on premise, but did seem homemade and was a very good ice cream. Bobbi promised to bring Maria a pie on our next trip through Wikieup, and I was finally able to drag her out of the restaurant.
Eat at Joe's is definitely worth a stop on our next trip through Wikieup. Eat At Joe’s Barbecue 17809 Highway 93 South Wikieup, AZ 85360
