Brooks' House of Bar-B-Q

Brooks' House of Bar-B-Q
Upon recommendation from our friend, Bryan Gilligan, we decided to go here for dinner.

Bryan being a Vice Principal at P.S. 8 in the Bronx, knows how to teach young kids who will  represent our future.

Last August 8, 2009 he taught Royalty a lesson in knowing where to go when you find yourself in the Oneonta, NY area.

The King and I went to Cooperstown that day to see the Baseball Hall of Fame and we also saw the Oneonta Tigers play the Staten Island Yankees in a minor league game that night.

Thankfully we did so, the Oneonta Tigers will no longer be playing there. A few months ago, they announced that the team was moving to Norwich, Connecticut.

In between, we had just enough time to go to Brooks Barbeque. Here's the link:

Bryan did tell us the line would be out the door. Needless to say, he wasn't kidding.

This place has a reputation for a reason.

He told us to get served fast we needed to sit at the counter like you would in a old fashioned coffee shop.

This is a local place that knows how to please the natives and visitors alike.

I wound up having a full rack of ribs. I wasn't disappointed. I remember them being damn good.

I do hope to get the opportunity to return there some day.

Life is full of choices. That day I know we made a great choice.

Thank you Bryan for your advice.

Royalty always strives to be the best when it comes to making a road trip.
