Phil's BBQ

Brief post since my head is all fuzzy from studying. Went to the new Phil's BBQ location on Sports Arena just to see if the food had changed since my last visit a year ago at the original Mission Hills location.

I'm sad to say that the ribs from the new Phil's does not measure up to the original. Not even close. Preparation lacks care and professionalism. Though the sauce is still wonderful, it cannot make up for dinky sized CHARRED ribs with less meat than the original version. I had more than one rib that was completely charred and inedible. My two friends also had similar problems with their orders. Seems like mass producing ribs for the line that circles around the building has significantly brought down the quality (and size) of Phil's BBQ ribs. I won't be coming back.

If you still decide to go, don't forget to order the onion rings. They are fantastic. Also, you can skip the side orders. They are pretty standard and not worth mentioning. Baked beans were okay, though. Skip the BBQ chicken. It's just chicken brushed with BBQ sauce. You can make it at home.

Wow I sound pretty grumpy and disorganized in this post...my apologies. But seriously though, Phil's has gone downhill. Way way downhill.
