The County Line Restaurant Review

: The County Line’s operation includes outlets as far away as Albuquerque where indifferent barbecue may pass unnoticed. But while portions remain generous, and the décor is still shamelessly country kitschy, the kitchen merely labors on. Beef ribs are meaty, so the uninspiring sauce can be skipped (ask for it on the side), but brisket comes across more like pot roast. This selection and many other platters can be had in a “lite” serving portion, which is appreciated, however. Other meaty options include sausage, chicken and a 12-ounce County Line special rib-eye; fish lovers, who are advised to remember where they are, are limited to grilled salmon. We tend to like sides such as fried okra and potato salad. Note that house-made desserts --- think “mom’s” bread pudding --- are worth a look. There’s also a location on the River Walk downtown with essentially the same menu.
