Is an ancient building, with sawdust on the floor, grime covered windows, and no chairs, the only place to get good barbecue? What constitutes good atmosphere in a barbeque restaurant? Three bbq restaurants in Arlington TX illustrate different kinds of dining atmosphere.
T-Bones: small and personal
T-Bones Mississippi Style BBQ resembles the traditional barbecue location. The restaurant resides in a small shop in the back corner of a strip shopping center. The intimate feel is reinforced by the cooking which is all done by the owner, Terry Coleman.
Red, Hot & Blue: music and service
If T-Bones is small town, Red, Hot & Blue is big city. A hostess, individual tables, and wait staff all distinguish Red, Hot & Blue as different from the traditional, casual bbq joint. Red, Hot & Blue features the blues music and memorabilia of Memphis, the capital of barbecue and blues.
Cokers: nostalgia and family
Cokers exudes nostalgia with their abundance of Coca Cola memorabilia. A 1950s Coke machine, vintage Coke bottles, and an antique soda fountain, all combine to remind the customer of restaurants of yesteryear. Cokers’s father-daughter team who work as cook and manager are a throwback to old time mom and pop diners.
A dilapidated building may be a sign that a bbq restaurant invests their efforts in the food and not the furniture, but three Arlington TX restaurants prove a restaurant can serve quality barbecue and look good too.
