Fox Bros. BBQ — Another perfect meal

Fox Bros. Chicken & Ribs Combo

The Setting: This perfect summer day with a bright blue sky had Fox Bros. packed to near-capacity.

The Staff:  Friendly and attentive, even with the crowd

The Food:

Watermelon Margarita:  Perfectly fresh watermelon juice, a good kick of tequila & just barely sweet… YUM!

Chicken — perfectly moist, juicy, & smoky… just a pleasant bit of crunch to the perfectly browned skin  (2 orders — both perfect)

Ribs — rich, juicy, meaty & the perfect amount of smoke… with a nice bit of char & caramelization at the edges bringing out the full flavor of all the spices

Corn Bread — my favorite, as usual, this corn bread defines the category for me:  crisp, golden brown outer shell, moist interior with plenty of corn flavor, dense & a hint of sweetness to play off of the diced jalapenos.  Ours arrived fresh out of the oven, in a new shape (see photo above).  But, all of the same great flavors, textures, & ginormous size (every piece we’ve ordered has been huge — in this loaf shape, like two generous slices of pound cake) are still present

Turnip Greens  — even better than the collards, if that’s possible… the sauce has a red tinge (see photo below), a bit more heat and incredibly rich flavor

Collard Greens — pleasantly bitter, a bit spicy, meaty, & tender-yet-maintaining structural integrity
