Barbecue restaurant honored by magazine

Missouri Hick Bar-B-Q in Cuba, Mo., was named the best barbecue restaurant in southwest southeast Missouri by Rural Missouri magazine, according to the Viva Cuba blog.

From the blog:

The restaurant at 913 East Washington, which is also Route 66, offers BBQ, smoked meats, a 5-6 pound loaded baked potato, five homemade BBQ sauces, and a lot more. The parking lot is often filled with cars, motorcycles, and buses from around the U.S. Customers come from around the world as travelers make their dream trip on Route 66.

From the magazine:

When Rural Missouri Managing Editor Jason Jenkins is out on assignment anywhere near Cuba, you can bet you’ll find him at Missouri Hick for lunch. While some may debate him, he says the pulled pork sandwich is the best around. The restaurant expanded its dining room this past year, so others must agree.

The restaurant contains a lot of rustic Ozarks cedar decor, and is also notable for being next door to the historic Wagon Wheel Motel, which is being renovated.

Rural Missouri also lauded Dowd’s Catfish and Barbecue in Lebanon, and the town of Carthage for scenic beauty.

    Missouri Hick Bar-B-Q, I’ve been hearing about this place from my friends. And you’re right they’re also raving for the pulled pork sandwich. Something’s telling me that I really should try this place.

    MO Hick’s award was for Southeast MO, not the Southwest. The Southwest, MO award for BBQ went to The Rusty Jug in El Dorado Springs, which is known for deep-fried smoked ribs.

    That error was my fault, not Ron’s. Sorry.
