Dr Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas BBQ

SIMIHOUND Feb 19, 2007 05:57 PM

I found myself in the neighborhood and decided to have dinner here. I had not been in years because the last few times I ate here I was unhappy-about what I don't recall but it was a negative memory nevertheless. Anyway tonight it was delicious. I had the 2 meat combo that being spare ribs and beef ribs. Sides were potato salad and coleslaw. The order went in and instantly came the bread loaf and my sides. In another seven minutes the food was served. The ribs were were tender, almost falling off the bone and very very tasty. They were so flavorful that I found myself wondering why I didn't want bbq sauce-
I always want sauce. In any case I decided to try a bit of regular sauce and still decided I still didn't need it or want it. The only negative thing is that there was a bit too much heavy char, the kind that stays with you and can ruin the flavor on a small part of a few ribs. Dessert was sweet potato pie which was a bit too sweet for me but still something different that I enjoyed.

    I heard good reviews a few years ago, but nothing but poor reviews in the past 2 years. Let's get an unbiased update on the food. Otherwise, I"m going back to RIBS USA

        I sometimes order just a side of the hot links. It's about three times as much meat as you need, but it's pretty good.

        The Doc is still worth the trip, but it is disappointing that they turned the heat waaay down on their hot bbq sauce. Having the left-overs, after they've been sitting in the plastic take-out bag, filled with that tasty-hot bbq sauce was a great part of the experience.

          Just keep a trusty bottle of Tabasco Habanero on hand, works wonders.

            Actually, I make my own pepper sauce, consisting mostly of ground habaneros and garlic.

          I have not been in years as I also have some negative memories. I'm going next week on my hound brothers recommendation. I'll let you know!

              Eating at Hogly's is definitely worth a trip to the valley...
              I like the baby back ribs. And all the sides are good too.
