Restaurant Review: Daisy May's BBQ
Daisy May’s BBQ
I can't believe how fast the year is coming to an end. I, for one, will be glad to see 2005 end. As my faithful readers know, it's been a very tough year. I'm really looking forward to 2006.

The “Sticky Ribs” were easily the best ribs I've ever had from Daisy May's; sweet, a little spicy and smokier than in past orders. If Adam had served me these ribs in a KCBS contest, he would have easily walked away with first place. I’ve never said that about “restaurant barbeque” before. I was greatly impressed and a little envious; the Daisy May’s team is going to be harder to beat in competition next year.

Daisy May’s BBQ has been in business for about 2 years now and Adam Perry Lang has really hit his stride. This was hands down the best barbeque meal I’ve had in a long long time. If you are anywhere on the
