Skylight Inn / Ayden, NC...good as ever

JayL Nov 27, 2012 08:46 AM

Visited the Skylight Inn Friday & Saturday after Thanksgiving. Haven't been in a few years. Friday was ok, not the best I've ever had there but better than most other places around. Saturday was better and as good as I've ever had.

The bbq in South Carolina, where I am currently living, pales in comparison. No one can come close.

    I popped over to Pete Jones' the other day for the first time in a while and noticed they had ribs on the menu. Wonder how long that's been on there? I did try the chicken when they first introduced that a couple of years ago, but I was not impressed.

    I just got barbecue this time, which was great as usual.

      Do they still have skin in the bbq?

        They did last spring when I was there.

          Smoky, crunchy bits of skin are always part of the formula at skylight. Signature element to their cue.

            Problem is it gets rubbery very quickly- Holden's in Youngsville doesn't have skin anymore and it's excellent.

              Go during lunch...it doesn't have time to get soggy.

            Yes they do...one of the things that make them unique. Some like it, some don't...I do.
