My husband and I heard about Mr. K's Barbecue while staying in Tucson recently. OK, the restaurant looks like an old time barbecue joint! Like a hole in the wall, and not in the best location.
However, the restaurant was clean, the counter help friendly and the food.....WOW! Being an Atlanta resident for many years, we do enjoy our barbecue. Mr. K's brisket is the absolute best!! Melt in your mouth, NOT fatty (you know what I mean. Some brisket can be mostly fat, with very little meat.) Not Mr. K's. Lean, tender, smoked perfectly!
I got the combo plate, that included a smoke hot link, 2 pork ribs, and brisket. For the two sides I choose candy sweet potatoes and baked bean. Everything was very good, but the brisket and those candy sweet potatoes were the best! If you enjoy sweet potato pie, definitely try the candy sweet potatoes!
My husband ordered a two meat combo plate (not on the menu, but they gladly made it for him.) He wanted to try both, the brisket and the pulled pork. The pork, was probably very good, but next to the smoked brisket, it was just OK. The brisket out-shined all the other meats. He selected candy sweet potatoes and cold slaw for his two sides. Again, the sweet potatoes were devoured in seconds. The cold slaw had a different taste that he wasn't fond of. Come to find out, it was cinnamon. Not a big fan of cinnamon in cold slaw.
If you are in the mood for barbecue, try Mr. K's on Park Avenue. We went back twice! I was that good.
