The List: Fox Brothers
Sure, the ribs were amazing (and make a repeat appearance on the 2013 list), but it's the Frito Pie that keeps me coming back and tolerating the hour-ish wait every visit to Fox Brothers.
I forgive the people at Creative Loafing for not mentioning Frito Pie as a top dish since the list doesn't technically mention "sides."
But I digress... Today I want to let you know about, from the new entrant to the Best Dishes, the smoked portabella mushroom sandwich. If you're like I am, the idea of ordering a VEGGIE dish at a BBQ place is flat out wrong. Still, I knew I was going to be happy with the Frito Pie, so reluctantly went along with The List. I am so glad I did!
The smoky taste of the mushroom was epic, and the kitchen has the good sense to use a spicy cheese which gives the sandwich a nice kick. The only disappointment was how utterly ugly it is.
In fact, the sandwich might win the prize for the "least-photogenic" dish. Let's try this in black and white!Better. But, still not great.
I'm not complaining. After all, the Frito Pie isn't winning any beauty pageants. (And you know how I feel about that!)
Every trip to Fox Brothers is worth the wait!
