“Let everyone who enters as guests, leave as friends,” a quote that is not only written on the walls of Rosie’s BBQ, but something that they live by through and through. I have first hand experience with this as I truly felt like I left having met some awesome people who take so much pride in what they do. A true family owned and run business, if there ever was one. Where siblings manage the kitchen, dad and son greet the guests, and mom is in the back baking desserts on a daily basis.I was so impressed at how involved the entire family is in making Rosie’s BBQ what it is.
When I first arrived, I noticed the old fashioned country feel, with the horseshoe bench and hunting memorabilia on the wall. Owners Richard and Richard Jr. gave us a run-down of their history and their vision for Rosie’s BBQ when they took over two years ago. Their idea is to serve BBQ from different regions based on who does it best in their opinion. For example, their pulled pork is done in a North Carolina fashion, while their tri-tip is done in a Texan style.
To start off, we were served freshly baked garlic rolls. And to drink, we ordered two of their specialty drinks, Hawaiian Breeze and Tradewind. I recommend the Hawaiian Breeze because of the splash of strawberry puree they throw in there. Makes all the difference in the world.
In order to try as much variety as possible, we ordered 2 combo plates, where each comes with two sides. The first Combo plate was baby back ribs, tri-tip, cole slaw and baked beans. Their baby back ribs and tri-tip are both slow cooked for 12 hours and then finished off on a mesquite wood grill to give it that nice smokey flavor. The ribs…delicious, and the tri-tip, probably the best tri-tip I’ve ever had. The meat was so tender and easy to devour, especially with that amazing smokey flavor. Ribs were smothered in their very own home-made BBQ sauce! Second combo plate was baby back ribs, beef ribs, cheesy garlic mashed potatoes, and cheesy mac and cheese (drool). Beef ribs, just as yummy as the baby back ribs, were juicy, tender, and meaty. The mashed potatoes and especially the mac and cheese are divine! Even though they are both carbs, I would still order them again and again.
Dessert was a tough choice to make but we opted for the peach cobbler. I loved the texture of the dough, and loved how the dessert itself was not so sweet, because you got all the sweetness you need from the vanilla ice cream on top. The combo of warm peach cobbler with cool creamy vanilla ice cream, you can’t go wrong with that.
All in all, I had an amazing experience not only with the food but more importantly the hospitality we received. I know that I’m planning on going back to try their other menu items like their lamb shank. If you’re ever in the mood for some BBQ, do yourself a favor and check out Rosie’s BBQ. Order their Tri-tip, which is beyond amazing, alongside their mac and cheese and you’ll be happy you did.
