From the people who brought you great hits like Grand Electric, its Electric Mud BBQ. Stepping inside is like being transported into a swamp barbeque shack in Louisiana, cheesy décor included. The ceiling is low and the walls are made with pressboard and cluttered with signage; however the beats and southern heat make this place shine. Vegetarians will be horrified, carnivores will be delighted. Servers are friendly and skillful.
Off the board: hot n’ spicy fresh fried pork rinds are a knockout, as are crisp sweet n’ sour housemade pickles. The menu is just as comforting; fatty pig tails arrive slathered in a sweet hot sauce (still crisp), sided with a cooling ranch/blue cheese dip that’s simply perfect.
Southern style fried chicken served with a straight-up honey is succulent. And a chewy pig’s ear salad with a soft boiled egg is silky and textured.
The drink of the evening is the Beergarita (Agua Loca, Tequila, lime juice, agave, salt), so refreshing and tasty even to non-beer drinkers like myself. Another winner is the Clydesdale made with Bourbon, grapefruit, lime and Agave. If you like Grand Electric you will love Electric Mud BBQ like I do.
