Jax Bar and Grill in Glendale.
Tonightâ€™s 7in7 BBQ restaurant review was close to being a complete disaster. Someone in the BBQ Junkieâ€™s inner circle had highly recommended Jax in Glendale. â€œSure, why not?â€ I thought to myself. Jazz and BBQ would be the perfect way to end the 7in7.
Well, as it turns out, Jax not a true BBQ joint, but merely a restaurant that happens to serve barbecue as one of the dishes on its menu. In this instance, the term barbecue is used to describe baked baby back ribs covered in BBQ sauce. Funny as it sounds, they were in some ways better (more meaty, flavorful and tender) than other ribs that I had eaten durring the week.
Iâ€™m not going to spend too much time on this review (because it is not truly a BBQ restaurant), but will say that it was an enjoyable evening. As we finished our meal, a blues band came on and started there set. Their bass player looked like Billy Vera. That sparked a question that seemed to dominate the rest of the eveningâ€™s conversation. â€œWhat was the Billy Vera and the Beatersâ€™ big hit in the â€˜80s?â€
Time is a getting little tight to finish up this review (Motherâ€™s Day tomorrow), so I will post the photos soon. Good night.
