|Take-out from Taylor's Texas Style Barbecue|
The inside of Taylor's is just what you would expect for a barbecue place: stripped down and basic with no frills. They offer plates of brisket, beef or pork ribs, 1/2 chicken, sasuage, pulled pork and chopped brisket, as well as sandwiches with chips. Side dishes include cole slaw, potato salad, green beans, macaroni salad and boiled potatoes. No surprises there. You can also buy apple or peach cobbler by the pound or in individual servings.
I placed my to-go order at the counter: a plate of pulled pork with cole slaw, green beans and red sauce. "Do you want pinto beans?" I was asked. Taylor's sets out a big pot of pinto beans that dine-in customers can help themselves to. I nodded in the affirmative.
First off, let me say that the pork had a pure, fresh taste that was delightful. The texture was too shredded for me -- I prefer chopped barbecue. But the taste of the pork was so good, I could overlook the texture. The green beans were Southern style -- cooked to death with fatback -- but tasty. The coleslaw was also very fresh tasting and good.
And the pinto beans -- well, they were the star. No sugar added, just nice plain pinto beans. Very tasty.
