Saturday afternoon hundreds of barbecue lovers gathered for the kick-off celebration for Stiky Ribz barbecue located at 9705 Helms Trails, very near Interstate 20 in Forney.
Clearly projecting a reputation for delicious barbecue, the serving line opened at eleven o’clock to the smell of barbecue that had been slow cooked throughout the night and within minutes the parking lot was full of cars and the music was playing.
Competitive barbecue chefs and professional caterers, Forney resident James Reed and his family are planning to build a 4,000 square foot family oriented barbecue restaurant on the tree lined property.
The new restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor dining with two stages with live entertainment alongside several large screen televisions, lots a shaded outdoor seating and a children’s play area.
Announcing a tentative opening date for St. Patrick’s Day in March 2019, the cooks at Stiky Ribz stayed up throughout Friday night cooking over 400 lbs. of prime brisket, pulled pork and ribs. And many, many of the customers waiting in line proclaimed the fact that Stiky Ribz serves up some absolutely “melt in your mouth” prime beef brisket.
The top seller on the menu is the slow cooked prime brisket, which is lean, tender and so very succulent that it all but melts in your mouth.
Obviously employing some talented barbecue cooks, Stiky Ribz has a lot of really good items to offer that are sold both by the plate and the pound. And while speaking with many of the customers in line in was quickly determined that the "Bad Hombre” sticky ribs receive high marks for flavor. With a name that suggests these ribs may be hot, the realty is that they are mildly spicy with rib meat that easily falls from the bone.
The celebration also provided live music sung by local country singer Reece Norris, free snow cones, corn hole games and bounce houses for the children.
