Overall
Great tasting BBQ with friendly down to earth service!

Swung by the other night for a belated birthday dinner for my little sis w/ boy toy. None of us had been here, we decided to give it a try.

You have to order at the counter, pay first & then they'll bring you your food. A nice young lady was at the front and was most informative on the different options, including something called "The Trough". They have a wall of fame of people who actually finished the monstrosity (8 Smoked Pork Ribs, 6 Smoked Beef Ribs, 1/2 Smoked Chicken w/ 2 sides & 4 corn bread) @ $49.95 in under an hour. It was fun to hear about it - but of course we didn't order it. Are you kidding me? I wanted to survive for NYE!

We all ordered the quarter rack smoked pork ribs (4 ribs). The meat was tender and easy to pull off of the bone. I did my own mix of the Bull BBQ sauce & the sweet/spicy BBQ sauce to slather on my ribs.

We all had a mix of 2 of the following 3 sides:
1) Coleslaw - topped w/ candied almond slivers - not too much mayo - crisp & the almonds gave it a meaty flavor that was startlingly good!
2) Mac N Cheese - topped with crushed Cheez-Its like crumbs - I'm not a fan of mac n cheese unless lobster & truffle oil is mixed in so this was just okay for me
3) Sweet Corn - which was delicious yellow corn kernels in this brown (molasses?) like sauce that made me think I might just be done w/ cream of corn (except Lawry's 'cos no one can take that cream of corn away from this girl!)

Corn Bread (muffin shaped) - you all know I don't like bread. Ok - if it's dessert related or part of Porto's medianoche sandwich, I will eat the bread. But this wasn't just a typical corn bread mushy muffin consistency. It had GRIT! It was GRAINY! It reminded me of the corn bread I used to get while living in Alabama. It was sweet, warm and I wanted more! Of course boy toy stuffed the last 1/3 into his mouth 'cos I couldn't eat any more right at that moment.

The owner (older gentleman?) I believe, came out while we were hemming & hawing about what to order. He gave us sample tastes of the pulled pork & the beef brisket. Boytoy & lil' sis like the pulled pork. I liked the brisket. He also swung by while we were seated awaiting our meals, w/ a hot pan of ham slices in bubbling hot BBQ sauce & a sample side of the baked beans. WOW! A suggestion to Bulls' owner - serve hot bubbling BBQ sauce on the side. It really brought out the peppery flavor compared to when I used what was at the table. Delicious!!! Baked beans were cooked just right (not overly mushy) and were spicy - not sweet like most places. I'm getting this side next time!

Delicious - nothing was left!

Sodas were free refills.

They even brought us complimentary scoops of cookies & cream ice cream. I had no idea but apparently they have a large patio with a big screen in the back - perfect to watch sports games while chowing down on good grub. And they are pup friendly so bring man's best friend for free bones!

We all agreed that this is where we'll be coming back to try beef ribs and brisket and whatever else they wanna put in front of us. We had all tried Phil's BBQ and felt it was an over commercialized place that provided long lines with a generic tasting BBQ sauce (I could buy the KC brand at the market and that would be Phil's BBQ sauce...would taste the same). But Bull's BBQ sauce is very peppery on one hand or sweet/spicy on the other hand.

We were so full & w/ the ice cream to top us off, we went straight home w/o getting dessert.

The congenial & friendly service is what just made this the place I'll be coming back to whenever I get a hankering for ribs in SD.
