When we pulled into the driveway we were greeted by one of the owners, Eddie, whom we later learned is also the creator of the secret seasoning recipe and smoking techniques used for their meats.
Inside, Eddie’s son and co-owner , Shannon, was our host and server. He was super excited about the place and their fresh, homemade items that they serve – from baked beans to homemade potato salad to fresh coke slaw, all are made fresh daily on the spot with their own recipes and some is even home grown!
We both tried the ribs, which came with a couple of sides. I had the fries and the fruit salad. The ribs were tasty and though they were not the “fall off the bone” type, they were quite tender. I normally avoid fruit as a side because it is so often a disappointment of bland melon and a few grapes. As you can tell from the photo above, that is not the case with this fruit medley. When Shannon told me theirs would have strawberries and kiwi I was sold. The fries were good, too! Though this was a few weeks ago and I believe the plan was to make their own fresh cut fries so they are probably even better now.
There are five homemade sauces to choose from – a regular, sweet one, a mild, a habanero, a ghost chili and a mustard sauce.

I can hardly wait to go back and try other items on the menu … Maybe the chicken or a burger next time!
The prices are quite fair at just $9.95 for a regular rib plate and $13.95 for a large plate.
Double Barrel BBQ is located at 2920 Thomas Drive.
