Tasty new BBQ in WPB!
Looking for really great BBQ?
Well, we found it in WPB at Southern and Dixie. Just opened a little bit ago, C & C BBQ is really tasty. The sauce is a North Carolina based brew of mustard and lots of vinegar. We had the chicken and smoked turkey. The sides of mac and cheese and sweet potato fries were yummy.
The meat was really incredible. And the sweet potato bread pudding special was absolutely delicious. Their main meals, all terrific prices, are pork ribs, baby back ribs Malta glazed, fried chicken, bbq chicken, smoked turkey, shaved brisket and fish and chips.
The only drawback is that it is only take out and delivery. Terrible looking little joint, nothing to see, decent parking. But I would recommend that you call ahead and not just drop on by... we did and it seemed to take forever for the order to come out. Plus the young girl at the front was clueless.
But wow, it was worth it. Really, really good BBQ and sides. We can't wait to go back. Anyone else tried it yet??
C & C BBQ, 4001 S. Dixie Hwy, WPB, 561-856-4963
I dropped in right at opening time @ 2pm Sunday. I talked a bit with the owner who is a young guy and seems to know what he is doing. The place only has two tables inside and is a small and clean place. I wouldn't say it's a terrible looking place but rather on cue for a Q joint. It's located on the southwest corner of Southern and Dixie Hwy.
Shawn explained to me how he makes the malta ribs by reducing down malta and using it in his BBQ sauce just for the malta ribs. He does have regular dry or wet ribs on the menu as well. I asked him if he had brunswick stew and he had never heard of it. I told him it's popular in Georiga and he wanted to know how to make it.
I had a pulled pork sandwich and mac-n-cheese. The pork was pretty good with crust and served on toasted thick white bread. I was hoping for a decent amount of smoke flavor but it was lacking from what I prefer. I'm really not a Q snob as long as there's smoke that permeates the meat in the process. But most ppl don't like too much smoke. Another downfall IMO is that he coated the pulled pork in BBQ sauce. I think it would be much better to either have sauce on the table, serve it on the side, just add the sauce on top of the meat. Pre-sauced pork just makes for a sloppy eating sandwich and doesn't allow you to really taste just the meat. The sauce is semi sweet version of mustard and vinegar. Mac-n-cheese was pretty good and above average for most Q joints around here.
There's all of your standard q options and a few southern entress and sides. Along with ribs, brisket, smoked turkey, and pork, they aslo have pecan crusted catfish and fried chicken. Sides include black eyed peas, collard greens, plantains, cajun corn, and fried sweet potato.
As in the OP, the counter help was clueless but that doesn't bother me. Maybe this is another new person tending the front. This is a very small owner operated joint and I hope he does well. The phone was ringing with takeout and delivery orders, so ppl must know about it. Sadly, he has opened in a time of economic disaster for a new resto. I'll have to go back and check out his ribs and he said he dry rubs all of his meats.
Alright, Freakerdude.......Head that way and give us the report......Hope it's competition quality!!......I went to Austin's on your say-so......Liked their meats.....still thought it was overpriced....(and I'm not the only one who thinks that!)......but the flavor was there!.......Head to C & C and let me know....I'll be right behind ya!
