Brazen BBQ Restaurant Review

: Brazen BBQ in Hillcrest serves up ribs, brisket, pulled pork, hot links, chicken and wings, featuring homemade rubs and sauces. Add on starters and sides such as ancho-spiced baked beans, Creole potato salad and crawfish corn fritters. Bacon lovers should try the house favorite --- "smoked pig candy," which are thick slices graced with "barnyard dust" (spices) and sugars, then smoked. There's also chicken and portobello wraps, tri tip salads, burgers and down-home chili. For dessert, you’ll find peach cobbler, bread pudding, ice cream floats and warm chocolate chip cookies and milk. On Sundays, brunch highlights a variety of meaty selections and bottomless mimosas, plus all-day happy hour. Try the brisket Benedict, sliced meat with peppers, onions and poached eggs served on cornbread and topped with Cajun hollandaise. The high-ceilinged restaurant is decorated with Western paraphernalia like saddles and barrels. The Lost & Found Saloon next door offers craft beers, fancy cocktails and sampler plates of the good eats.
