Great Find...

Sunday was part of “Restaurant Week” in and around Huntsville.  Mary Ann and I had decided to go out for an early Sunday afternoon dinner (or late lunch) at one of the many local restaurants that were running promotional specials.  We decided on a barbecue place that we’d never visited, the New Market Barbecue in New Market, Alabama.  We were very pleasantly surprised.
We each ordered a pulled pork plate with ribs as our second meat.  This included two sides and a dessert.  We tried the smoked mac and cheese (honest!) and cole slaw.  Mary Ann had the chocolate pie and I had the peanut butter pie as our desserts.  I also got a sampling of their brisket to try.  Everything was very good.  The meats were moist and tender.  The meat was falling off the ribs.  The side orders were tasty, fresh, and generously served.  The desserts, all home made in house, were wonderful.  The provided sauces were OK, but I prefer a wider variety of sauces than I saw.

The young man who waited on us was friendly and very helpful, recognizing that we were new and not familiar with the menu.  While we were eating, one of the owners, Libby Webb, came by to welcome us and make sure we had gotten everything we needed.  She was bubbly and outgoing and very enthusiastic.

We will definitely go back.  As a special bonus, they were running a giveaway for folks who “liked” them on Facebook.  I entered and got an email after we got home notifying me that I had won third place – a large bottle of their special Barbecue Rub.
