Barbecue, barbeque, BBQ, or Q—call it what you want, it’s always good eating. Banners, flags, and billboards up and down Clovis Avenue promoted BBQ, but I never paid much attention to it until I went to a friend’s memorial service at the California State American Legion offices in Sanger (Yes, Sanger). After the service was a barbecue, and it was so-o-o-o-o-o good! Where did this food come from? I found out, and the answer is the subject of this Great Food Search.


by Terrance Mc Arthur

In the past, the Great Food Search has done theme articles, comparing pizzas, donuts, hot chocolate, Mexican restaurants, or soups. More recently, the articles have featured one restaurant at a time. Now, it seems, I have stumbled into writing a series of single-restaurant reviews on one theme: it started with a lighted sign in the night: Dickie’s. I have wandered into Barbecue Land.

A new year has burst upon us, a time for new beginnings, a time for new places to eat. While shopping at the new center on Herndon near 99, I saw a light in the sky, and it said “Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.” I always try to follow the advice of my mother: go towards the light. I did, and it was goo-ood!

Brent Walton took up barbecuing as a hobby ten years ago to help him recover from his first heart attack. In April, another attack ended his life, but his legacy lives on at the QN4U BBQ House in Clovis.

Fette Sou (fat pig in German) is a BBQ joint wedged between a graffiti scrawled apartment building and the parking lot of Frank’s Auto Repair Shop in New York. I’d describe it as a Brooklyn Hipster hangout with an attitude of ‘we’ll do it our way’.
