>>>RELATED: Local restaurant wins State Fair rib-off
Awards are nothing new for Company 7, which also recently won two of three national championships in the National Barbecue News Annual National Sauces of Honors competition out of 165 entries. This writer tried all six of their table sauces (The Rookie, Captain Carolina, Firefighter Sweet, Lieutenant Tangy, Chief Smoky and Commissioner Burns), and preferred the Chief Smoky, which won Best Sauce for Beef. I opted for the brisket meal, with garlic potatoes, cole slaw and Texas toast. The meat was thinly sliced. Despite being a tad dry, it was still so tender that I almost didn't need a knife. I was a big fan of the garlic potatoes. There was nothing remarkable about the slaw, but it was good.
