My husband and I are always looking for new restaurants to try. We regularly drive by Big Sticky's BBQ in Marysville, and have been wanting to grub down on some tasty meats for awhile now. Sadly, it seems as though every time we think to go, it Sunday afternoon. Big Sticky's is not open on Sundays. There is nothing more frustrating than repeatedly trying to go to a restaurant, and continually getting shot down. This also happens to us every time we want to go to the Prohibition Gastropub in Everett. They open at 3pm, and we always want to go for lunch. You would think we'd learn.
This past weekend we actually planned and scheduled ourselves to sit down for some BBQ for our Saturday lunch out. I'm still confused as to whether this restaurant is currently called Big Sticky's or Sticky Fingers. It's gone through some name changes, and they do not have a current website that I can find. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome and invited to order at the register before finding the seat of our choice. My daughter ordered the kid's Macaroni and Cheese. She said there was too much "sauce" and not enough mac. I think she's crazy. It was awesome. My son ordered The World's Best BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with a side of mac and cheese. My husband ordered the special, Rib-Tips with fries and baked beans. I can't resist food wrapped in a tortilla, so I order the Mucho Macho Monster Burrito. At least, I think that's what it was called.
I had my choice of meat, so I went with the beef brisket. It was the best BBQ I have ever had, and I could definitely taste the wood used to cook the brisket. I haven't had a lot of BBQ, so if you're a sticky finger yourself, this is my disclaimer. There was delicious meat, rice, baked beans, coleslaw, salsa, and ranch. It was an entire BBQ platter rolled into a tasty fat pellet. I did take a picture, but I refuse to share. As Gordon Ramsay would say, it looked like "a baby's nappy." I'm sorry, but it did. You should eat it with your eyes closed maybe.
I also enjoyed the bathroom décor...
but I wish they would have left Jared out of my lunch.
I'm a not-for-profit worker that loves food, both healthy and indulgent. I've eaten the 12 egg omelette at Beth's Cafe: toast, hash browns, and all. Take that Adam Richman!
