Great BBQ

Posted by Anonymous on Apr-04-2012
Came from FL and wanted some really down home BBQ. This place was great. I is a little hole in the wall but the service was great and the owner was the one fixing our meals. Would return if ever in the area.

I have eaten bbq from this place three times in the last twenty years. The first time was really all I needed, I thought the brisket was average, you could have squeezed a cup of grease out of the cold french fries and I thought it was overpriced. About five years ago I tried it again and again the food was average at best, service was poor and price was high. Today my son picked up carry out, one slab of ribs was more like jerky, the other was fair, lots of gristle in the sliced brisket, the potatoes in the potato salad were underdone and it took 20 minutes to get the food that was already prepared and just had to be boxed. All I can say is never again, better bbq can be found all over town like Whole Hog or Bandanas.

One of the best

Been eating at Crosstown for over 30 years. Was there when Jesse ran it and now that Steve has taken over the food is just as good. Really miss the old jukebox but hopefully he will put it back in. Its hard to beat the ribs or hot link from Crosstown. Everytime I am in Springfield I buy at least $100 of BBQ, pack it on ice and take it home to Arizona.

i have been going to crosstown for the last 2 months or so. while looking at one of my bank statements i noticed i was charged 7.92 for a lunchplate, which should be 6.92.(i payed with visa) i went there to show them and they refunded me my dollar. when i got back home, i looked back further on my statement, and noticed that on another purchase,they had overcharged me again 2 dollars. i dont know what theyre trying to pull but im not going back.

The " Boy's weekly lunch "

Of 4 lunches: Lunch 1.--- had a 3 inch x 1 inch piece of rubbery gristle in the sandwhich which you could stretch out like a rubber band about 2 inches and it would return to it's original shape --- we did this several times to see if it would ever break. Along with this disgusting parcel were three other samplings of gristle in the sandwhich. Lunch 2. had about 1/4 of the sandwhich in gristle which had to be cut out. Lunch 3. had about 1/8 of the sandwhich in gristle and I cut it out. The worst part was when we brought this to the attention of Steve ( the owner ) his demeaner was as if to say " Why are you bringing this up and wasting my time ? ". His attitude seemed to be --- if you don't loke the food don't come here . Well the four of us will never darken that door again!!!!!!!!!!!! Funny thing is --- several people forewarned us that the food had really gone downhill in the last 4 - 6 months but one person said they liked the food there , soooooooooo we gave it a try --- we should have listened to the majority .

Some of the finest, most memorable barbeque I've ever had, not to mention the baked beans. Never have I been moved to compliment baked beans. WOW! Great job, Steve!

Any time we've eaten at Crosstown, it was wonderful. The food, the service, the atmosphere, all wonderful. Sherry

Great Place

Great b-b-que, the service was little lacking, the person who served us was busy talking to his friends, (which seemed pretty typical) but despite that the service was pretty good.
