Mini-Review: Hoppin’ John at Peggy Sue Barbecue in Dallas

peggysueThe first time I had a bowl of Hoppin’ John was a zillion years ago in South Carolina. Now I get my fix at Peggy Sue Barbecue. Say what you want about the ribs (love ‘em), brisket, and onion rings, but this dish, made with black-eyed peas, medium grained rice, bacon, diced onion and garlic, gringo peppers, and juicy smoke-flavored pulled pork and caramelized red onion is smashing. Simply smashing.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. It’s my standard order at P.S.’s. And I think it tastes even better in the booth with the James Dean autographed photo :)
