Today I wanted some barbecue. Really bad. So I googled barbecue in Midlothian, and I came up with a few locations. Ellis County Barbecue was the first one listed, so we stopped in there. It was not your typical barbecue joint. And by typical I mean walk through the line, have them slice your meat(s) of choice onto your place, and select your sides. Here, you were actually seated at a table, and the waitress came to get your drink order, and you looked over the menu while you waited. Not that this was a bad thing. I ordered a briskit sandwich with a side of okra. The briskit was great! My rule for thinking briskit is great is this: can it stand alone without barbecue sauce? Yes, I want barbecue sauce on my briskit, but the few bites I taste that don't have any on it should still be full of flavor. And it passed the test! Will I go back? Probably, if I am ever in Midlothian craving barbecue. Would I make a special trip to Midlothian just for the barbecue? Probably not.
