Day trip to Eufaula - Phil's Barbeque -- Rib Rub recipe
Phil's Barbeque best butts in bama
Who? My wife and myself
When: 5-2-2010 at 11:00 am
Where? Phil's Barbeque, 534 S Randolph Ave, ,
What did I have? Chopped pork Platter, with bread, fried okra, and coleslaw, and my wife had the shredded pork sandwich.
Why? We decided to make a day trip to Eufaula and we got hungry after checking out all of the historic homes. We went looking for a local restaurant that was still serving breakfast. After much searching we gave up on breakfast and decided on lunch. After seeing many signs for Phil's "Best Butts in Bama" we stopped in. When we parked and smelled the flavorful smoke coming from Phil's we forgot breakfast completely. The food was excellent! Everything was made to order, the pork had been cooking for hours. The meat was tender juicy and had a great smoke ring. My wife who did not like coleslaw before tried theirs and now orders it every time we go to a BBQ joint. The meat is served without sauce and they have several homemade sauces to choose from, pick whichever you like and add as much as you want. If you are in Eufaula when they are open this is a place you must try.
What would I change? Their sweet tea was a little too sweet for me, though some like it that way. I chose to go half sweet and half un-sweet.
Would I eat there again? Yes, the food was great.
On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this establishment a 8.
