Uncle Andre's BBQ review & photo
- Hypnotic23 Dec 31, 2007 07:58 AM
First off, I know a bunch of people on this board dont care for this spot yet I sure do!
Had it again last night, called in my order 30 minutes prior and picked it up.
I had the combo meal all this for $15.95
1 boneless beef rib (See photo) this is enough for a second meal alone
1/2 baby back pork ribs
1 hot link-excellent with a good snap when you bite into it
and 1 piece of chicken your pick-fried or BBQ, I had a breast
2 sides, I had the red beans with rice & mac n cheese
So good for a neighborhood spot, Studio City that is :>)
Happy New Year,
I also agree about swinging door's being disgusting, yet also feel Andre's just paints the meat with the sauce rather than smoking the meat, as opposed to Boneyard's actually smoking their meat in the kitchen and serving the sauce on the side.
Yes, apples and oranges regarding economics, yet...
ps - heard that the owners of swinging door are moving back to Texas.
It is as much a reflection of the setting, the cleanliness, etc. as much as some of the food not being all that special. It is nowhere near as clean as Andre's as an example, regardless of food quality issues.
fwiw - they are trying to sell the place from what I hear and move back to Texas.
On my way home from work, I've dropped by Uncle Andre's. I think this place should change its name from Uncle Andre's BBQ to Uncle Andre's Southern Kitchen or something similar because as others have pointed out, it's not "true" BBQ.
Regardless, the food is good for what it is...
