Fabulous Friday Friends,
I hope you all have had a fabulous week. We are still riding on the dreams of summer cook-outs and vacation time with the Labor Day Holiday, so I thought I would share a review of a nearby restaurant called Triplet’s BBQ.
My husband and I went to this restaurant a couple months back and well I have been dying to write this review ever since.
Yes, you go into this giant grain silo and that is where you eat your meal. They had benches along the wall which was so very smart because it made really great use of the space. Farm animals AKA BBQ were the name of the game when it comes to decor.
Now let’s talk food. If you like any type of BBQ you will like this place. The picture above is of the dish that I chose called a BBQ Sundae! It was layers of BBQ meat goodness and I highly recommend it. Per the menu this was layers of smoked meat (pork & brisket), Cornbread, beans, slaw, bbq sauces, and house pickles. The cornbread on top was the right amount of sweet and savory. It was also the perfect consistency with BBQ. It was not too crumbly and not to firm.
They had so many different sides to choose from. You can see the beans and the coleslaw in the photo above. They were part of the sundae. There are other sides to choose though.
I am a big fan of broccoli salad. This one in particular was very very tasty. They had the right amount of cheese and the right amount of red onion. These are the ingredients that most places just don’t get right for my taste. Now I’m going to talk about what was perhaps the mac & cheese, both my husband and I have ever tasted. This is a Smoked Gouda mac & cheese. The mac was a little over done for my tastes but I like my noodles extra al dente. So I don’t ever hold that against anyone. The flavor here is what we are raving about and telling everyone we know. If they have a chance to head up and visit Cadiz, KY, they need to stop by this BBQ joint and try out not just the amazing BBQ but the mac & cheese. Also, if they like us enough they will bring some back in a cooler!
Finally the true gem of any BBQ join is the sauce. Am I right? Sauce can make or break a BBQ meal. This can also greatly depend on the meat you are having. I am a girl that is very preferential to a mustard sauce. I am also a very traditional vinegar based sauce girl when it comes to pulled pork and how you are covering everything on your bun. If we are talking about ribs, I want a sweet and sticky sauce that is as much a part of the experience as it is a part of the flavor.
They had three different sauces. Dr. Pepper sauce which was a little sweeter. Jury Spicy sauce which was definitely on the spicy side for me, but the hubs was a fan. My particular meal had both sauces included as the sundae was well full with goodness from all angles!
Overall this was an amazing experience. I highly recommend checking out Triplet’sBBQ if you are in the area. If you are planning a trip to the KY area make this a stop on your list. You will not regret it. 🍽🍽🍽🍽🍽out of 5 experience for sure. Couldn’t recommend more.
Love and Mangia!
