MYRON MIXON'S PITMASTER BARBEQUE - HOBOKEN, NJ
I was able to try Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque for the first time a few weeks ago and I will admit that I was please with the experience. I was with my cousin on the day that I went to the Pitmaster's Barbeque restaurant. We drove to Hoboken and aimed to find a random place for lunch. We passed plenty of great looking deli's and restaurants but decided on Myron Mixon's as soon as we saw it.
We walked in around 2pm after the lunch rush. The place was empty except for workers in the back. This was a counter service restaurant where you place your order at the counter and they bring it to you when it's ready. The menu is up on the wall behind the cashier and simple to read. They hand you a table number after payment and kindly ask you to be seated while they prepare your food. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this type of service. I actually find it efficient in the right settings. It was a quick and easy ordering experience.
First I will state that each table had squeeze bottles of the Pitmaster's variety of sauces to accompany the meat. The sauces were their traditional BBQ Sauce (my favorite), the Vinegar Sauce, Hog Sauce and Sweet Heat Mustard Sauce (my second favorite). We shared three items. The BBQ Brisket, the Pulled Pork and the Short Rib. Each dish came with pickles and a side of your choosing. We ordered the BBQ Brisket with French Fries. The brisket was full of flavor and super tender. It melted in my mouth as I ate it. The fries were good and not overly salty. They were a little soggy but I actually prefer a soggy fry. I know, I'm a weirdo. The second dish was the Pulled Pork with Collard Greens. I did enjoy this pork quite a bit and enjoyed the Collard Greens even more. They did a great job with the side dish and found myself eating it more than the pork. Let it be known that I love pulled pork and am known to make a great pulled pork myself. As good as it was, I preferred my own. Finally we had the Short Rib with a side of Brunswick Stew. This was my favorite dish of the three. The bone in the Short Rib pulled out of the meat effortlessly. The meat did not need any sauce at all. I did try it with all sauces but ultimately preferred it on its own. The Brunswick Stew was essentially a side of beef stew which was fantastic. I could have eaten a bowl of it to be honest. Really great job on the Short Rib.
I ended up giving Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque a 7.8 which is a great score. It was a good experience. The restaurant is nice and has a charm to it. I wish I took a photo of the décor. The staff was great. The BBQ was great. With that said, there were a few areas that I felt are an opportunity. I mentioned that the restaurant was empty when we walked in. The table that we chose to sit was dirty and we had to clean it ourselves. We did this quickly and I am not sure that the staff saw it, but I would expect all tables to be clean with them being so slow when we walked in. I also mentioned the use of bread and butter pickles as a side. I was personally very excited to see that our food came with pickles but I was super disappointed when I tasted a bread and butter pickle. I personally despise bread and butter pickles. They are disgusting and have no right being a pickle. However I am very much aware that is my personal opinion and many people love them. To each his own.
At the end of the day, I fully recommend Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque and look forward to dining there again in the future. Enjoy!
