Restaurant Review: Yale Saloon

If you’re looking for a place to get away from the city in an evening, Yale Saloon might just be the answer.

As soon as you walk in, you’re transported to a Western complete with bull riding, line dancing lessons, good old warbly country music and good old fashioned BBQ inspired by the flavours from the South.

The Backyard BBQ is made for at least four people. There’s Andouille Sausage, Smoked Turkey, Brisket, Rotisserie Chicken and Pulled Pork. It’s served with coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans and jalapeño cornbread.

The brisket and ribs were the most memorable; they had a good smoky taste to it while being pretty tender. The sausage has a good smoky taste too. The rotisserie chicken was a lot tender than I thought it would be. Overall, the meat was great!

The coleslaw and potato salad needed more seasoning, but it was nothing salt, pepper and hot sauce couldn’t fix. I liked the jalapeño cornbread – it was dense but soft and buttery.

We also tried deep fried pickles – which were deep fried as wedges and they had a good amount of breading without being too overwhelming.
