AAA Highroads recently posted this video about Cruiser’s Route 66 Cafe in Williams, Arizona.
The food looks mostly good, but I have one rant.
I find it hard to believe the barbecued beef ribs are worth ordering. I’ve traveled all over the South, checking out some of the best barbecue shacks in the nation, and I’ve never found one pitmaster who thinks beef ribs are worth the trouble. Beef brisket, yes. Beef ribs, no. Also, the Cruiser’s ribs have way too much sauce on them. A good pitmaster will put the sauce on the side or dollop a squirt or two on the meat. A full coating of sauce indicates the chef isn’t too confident in his smoker.
