Brooklyn BBQ

I'm not sure how long Brooklyn BBQ on Memphis has been in our neighborhood, but when the owner was dealing with a health issue and had to temporarily close its doors, residents were upset. So, when we drove by the other night and saw the lit "OPEN" sign, we decided to stop in and grab takeout to bring home.
It took about 20 minutes, and we walked out of there with a big pile of food for under $40.

Mr. H and I split a full rack of Ribs ($21.99, We each ate a good portion and there was still about 1/3 left!), a Polish Girl ($6, I had to look up what it was. A Cleveland classic- a Polish Boy with the addition of pulled pork.), a medium side of Baked Beans ($5.95), and Mozzarella Sticks (5 for $4).

The ribs had a good smokey flavor to them, but the sauce was a little thin for my personal taste. I prefer a thicker, sticky sauce on ribs. Overall, the food didn't blow me away but it certainly was decent BBQ. I could make a meal out of those classic Southern sides. They also have several other sandwiches, meat platters, and fried seafood options.

But, the real gem of this spot are the owners. They could not have been sweeter, and I can see why the neighborhood was sad to see them temporarily close their doors. I'll probably stop back in, just because it feels good to support such nice people!
