Huston's Texas Pit BBQ 001

I’m being punished.

I’m being punished with this horrific online traffic school I’ve been forced to take.

And I was punished last night with the WORST BBQ I’VE EVER HAD.

This Hollywood hole in the wall has been here since 1944.

God only knows why.

I think we were the only non-indigents dining in this dingy dump (other, more graphic ‘D’ words come to mind)

We ordered a rack of the pork ribs, potato salad, baked beans, fries and cornbread.

Let me break it down for you:

RIBS: Fatty, very tough and DROWNING in sauce. The sauce should be baked on. These ribs were swimming in a bbq soup.

BAKED BEANS: Quite good, a little sweet. Possibly from a can.

FRIES: Orida, straight from the freezer. But hot! (My friend requested “hot” several times. I was almost certain we would be getting fries coated in a special glaze after so much pestering)

CORNBREAD: THE WORST EVER!!!!!!!! I don’t know why I continued taking bites out of this lukewarm couch stuffing!!

The two of us looked like crazy people, our faces and fingers drenched in the bbq, like cannibals partaking in a massacre.

Searching for a reason to like this place. And, unfortunately, never satisfying that hunger…
