Best Southern BBQ In The North

While riding through Connecticut, my son, his wife and my husband saw a sign that read BBQ. It was on the side of a small group of stores, and there was a dirt road that led up to the place. The name on the top was THE RIVERSIDE BBQ; we parked and walked around the property that overlooked a river.

The scenery was beautiful and the way the sun was shinning in the afternoon I wasn’t able to get good pictures of the river. It was truly beautiful in the fall and I can only imagin
e its beauty in the summer. We saw that they had lots of tables with BBQ pits, a screened in large gazebo along with a small eat in area at the food stand.

We decided to order a lot of different things off of the menu. The owner and the crew were very friendly, and as we got our food and tasted it, I saw the smile on their face as we complimented each thing we tasted. It was Soooo Good!

I told them how much I loved the food and that I had never tasted BBQ that good. They told us that they use all fresh meats and smoke them themselves, and they had actually gone to different BBQ in the south and really tried to prefect their own.

Well I have to say that they did, I love pulled pork their’s was delicious, as was the chicken which I have to say was my favorite. My husband loved the ribs and the potatoes were smothered with bacon, cheese, sour cream, and onions. All the potatoes are fresh cut right there and cooked, so where the beer battered onion rings all freshly made on site.

I never thought I’d be a food critic, but I enjoyed this place so much I just thought I would share it just in case someone out there is in that neighbor hood.
My only disappointment is that they are so far away from where I live that I will have to make plans to go back to Connecticut. For those that might pass through here is the address I actually had to look it up on line – 177 Roosevelt Dr, Seymour, CT ...................................... ..........................
