Sorry, had to clarify for the Waterlooians. For the non-KWs, Phil’s is the main university bar – $2 drinks, retro nights, sprayfoamed ceiling rafters, and sticky soles from the remnants of spilled sugary drinks and foreign fluids.
Went to Phil’s Original BBQ yesterday for a delicious (and dirt cheap) meal on College and Ossington. Full disclosure: I saw this place on Restaurant Makeover awhile ago and wanted to try it. Me es sheep. Buuuut me es satisfied sheep with a full belly of low and slow smoked tender bbq meat for $6.95.
Here’s a picture of their signature ribs. I didn’t have them, but they just looked so good online that I had to post it. My appetite didn’t warrant a rib plate, so I had a bbq brisket sandwich and it was just as tasty looking and tasty tasting. They’ve been rated the best BBQ in the city, so I hadta. Overall, it was excellent – really tender flavourful brisket on a perfect Portugese roll with a truly great homemade BBQ sauce. Just would’ve appreciated one or two more ingredients – it was begging for some caramelized onion, maybe even some cheese? You remember me and cheese. Compared to Black Camel’s pulled pork, Black Camel wins. But Phil’s still rocked.
