Reader: People in Denver Think the McRib is Good Barbecue

3sonsoutside.jpg
3 Sons is now open in the old home of M&D's.
To close out a month of eating barbecue for Ethniche, Mark Antonation visited a new spot, 3 Sons BBQ, that occupies an address with a long barbecue history, since it was once home to M&D's Cafe. Although 3 Sons might not live up to that legendary spot, he still found it a decent option in a town hungry for more good barbecue. And when you talk about barbecue in this city, the conversation always gets heated....fast.

Says Jeff:
People in Denver think the McRib is good barbecue.

Says WillieStortz:

BBQ places keep shutting down because there is no demand for it.

It seems that a bunch of BBQ enthusiasts think their BBQ is the best and they decide to open a restaurant only to find out that 95% of the Colorado population doesn't care to eat overcooked meat slathered in spicy ketchup.


Says Alexander:
Colo is not known for bbq....all the while, I don't care. We have mountains and weed.
When mountains and weed aren't enough for you, where do you go for barbecue? Read more comments and find many more barbecue suggestions here.

Of course the McRib is not real BBQ. But it is a tasty sandwich that I look forward to every year when the y promote it.

Can't just put BBQ sauce on processed meat in the shape of a rib and call it barbacue.

I think if you call your home a "Crib" then you probably like (Mac)Cribs, just sayin...

I like all the people missing the point here, CO has a few places that serve good BBQ, but most of the stuff locals try and pass off as BBQ is pretty sad overcooked meat with no smoke flavor and requires sauce. Good BBQ stands on it's own, I think the problem is too many Californians and not enough Midwesterners or Texans

The real paper only has about three stories mixed in with 75 pages of ads for bars and sex workers. I guess the online edition has the same amount of reporting.

people who like BBQ like to BBQ. It's tough. I think that many of these BBQ joints don't do enough to broaden their menu a bit so that when groups go out to eat then everyone can get something that makes them happy. There are lots of people going out to eat but there needs to be a variety to please everyone or you are just going to get those one or two guys getting a sandwich.

Westword, next time you run a poll on something like this, have some educational information at the end of it letting these folks know how little meat is actually in something like the McRib. It would probably change their answer. Also point out there is no rib in the McRib! It's amazing you even had it as an option.

I know of two pretty decent trucks that serve bomb BBQ. One in South Golden and one heading into Roxborough Park.
