Mini-review: Zeke's Smokehouse

We didn't try enough dishes here for a full review, but at the moment, I'm not feeling like rushing back. I thought Target and barbecue could be an inspired combination. So I went to the West Hollywood Gateway center, where I fell into the black hole that is BevMo, ended up buying wine, Abita beer and port, and never made it to Target. Meanwhile, they were cooking up my half bbq chicken at Zeke's, which I got to go. I guess chicken is not the strong suit of this offshoot of the original Montrose location -- I've heard the brisket or pulled port might be pretty good. Anyway, back to the chicken, which was cottony and flavorless. The thin sauce had a touch of spice but didn't go far enough to rev up the chicken. The collard greens were fine, but the beans needed some molasses or some kind of sweet note. When I finished, I wished I had stopped at Zankou instead, so I guess that says it all. But we'll give it one more try for the ribs for my rib-devouring son and some brisket for the rest of us.
