Slick's Que Co. (Sisters, OR)
240 E Cascade, Sisters, Oregon 97759, T: 541-719-0580
Sisters is a quaint little 'western' town in the Cascade mountains in Oregon, mostly known for its annual rodeo, "the biggest little show in the world". Last month a new restaurant opened, Slick's Que Co., which bills itself as an "authentic pit bar-b-que".
M.G. had a pulled pork sandwich ($5.50), while I went for ribs... unfortunately, they don't do ribs on Sunday, so I went with a burnt ends sandwich instead ($6.50). Both came with a side (we both chose coleslaw). The pulled pork sandwich was absolutely fantastic! The pork was so tender, you could almost suck it up. The burnt ends were less tender, but this was largely compensated by the fact that they were drenched in delicious bbq sauce. The coleslaw, finally, was very crunchy and tasty, yet remarkably light.
While M. and I disagreed on how good the pulled pork sandwich was, i.e. better than Fat Matt's in Atlanta or not, there is no doubt that Slick Que's pulled pork is among the best I have ever eaten. The burnt end sandwich was not as exquisite, but tasty nonetheless. I would probably have given them an even higher grade if I would have also been able to taste their ribs.
