Any word on whether Taj is going to set up shop permanently in Bville?

I know little so...

The pop-up did go over very well. They ran out of food every night I believe. They say the odds of them opening up permanently are good. However, if they were to move to town, it would have to be in a different location (don't really know why) according to Downtown Inc. Maybe the building owner has other plans or something for that location.

I don't imagine that spot is going to be filled up anytime soon. Plus I think they would get far better business downtown. The clientele is far more diverse. Plus our mall just is not that big of a draw. About the only thing that is popular in the mall is Buffalo Wild Wings.

It appears that Billy Sim BBQ is going to occupy the former Camille's. There's a sign in the window.

No improvement there.

That's surprising. Maybe it will do better. Camille's just offered subpar food and had to deal with McAlister's in the same parking lot, which I think is far more popular.

Actually never been to Sim's. I always assumed it was on par with Rib Crib. Am I wrong?

My experiences with Sims have been worse than Rib Crib.  That says quite a bit.  I've stopped abusing myself with boomer -que.

I never saw what the hype was.  I tried it once or twice.  Meh.

I personally prefer it to Rib Crib, but you're right in that it's just another generic BBQ place.

BBQ is extraordinarily depressing in Bartlesville. There is Rib Crib (and now apparently Sim's) and Dink's, the local flavor. Dink's has been here forever (well 1982, but it feels like forever) and people for some reason or another rave about it. I personally can barely handle it, where at least I think Rib Crib is close to palatable. Depressing, cause I love BBQ. Even more so since I grew up around Ponca City (Head Country & Dougan's), lived in Stillwater (Bad Brad's) during college. Since then I've been around Tulsa, which has plenty of decent/good BBQ and Dallas (NO GOOD BBQ). Every once in a while I have to make a trip west to Bad Brad's in Pawhuska (the original!).

Hmm.  Bad Brad's sounds interesting.  I may have to make the jaunt there.  Are there any second opinions?  Not that I don't trust yours, I just would rather see if someone else could chime in before I head out on Hwy 11 to try it.

Last time I went to Bad Brad's in Stilly, wasn't so impressed.  And they've gotten expensive.

It's one thing to drop $15.00 at BurnCo, quite another at Bad Brad's.

Yes, don't make the mistake of me thinking Bad Brad's is the greatest. It is not. It's just not terrible. I would not drive out of my way to go. But I still make frequent trips to Ponca (family) and it's not a bad pit stop.
