I’m going to let you all in on a bit of a secret. The best pork ribs in town are not at a touristy, over-decorated barbeque restaurant and you won’t find them at your average chain barbeque restaurants either. If you are seeking full flavored, fall-off-the-bone deliciousness, then I have just the place for you. Legends & Icons is under new ownership and they have stepped up their game!
I was looking for some comfort food, close to home and read some good reviews online, mentioning some positive changes brought by the new owner of Legends & Icons. I had no idea I was about to have such an experience. I had been there for lunch several times but decided to try the entrées that people had been raving about. We started with the shrimp cocktail and let me state that these were huge, fresh shrimp with a perfect cocktail sauce accompaniment. We were off to a great start. Entrées are served with choice of soup or salad and after our starters, we were ready to dig into what would be a memorable meal.
Joined by a very close friend, I was able to enjoy two of their many entrée selections. The Bourbon Street Mushroom Chicken was served with a bourbon sauce that had a bit of a kick. Though the chicken was tender, the sauce was a little spicy for my taste. The BBQ Pork Ribs, however, stole the show! With a barbeque glaze that had a full flavor without the dripping mess, I was able to spare my white shirt from a trip to the cleaners. The meat pulls away from the bone effortlessly and my only regret was not ordering the full rack so that I could enjoy them again the following day! With authentic homemade flavors and classic selections like Prime Rib, Fried Chicken and their famous Meatloaf, I will be bringing the whole family, again and again.
With a cold beer to wash down this amazing meal, I almost decided to leave then, on a high note, but I could not resist the sweet Apple Crisp dessert a la mode. Served warm and topped with rich vanilla ice cream, this brown sugary sweet goodness was even better than described by charismatic server, Dana.
Legends & Icons has plans for expansion and once you get the chance to try their food, you will be thankful for it! Great for lunch or dinner, Legends & Icons is open from 11:00am and dinner is served until 9:00pm with the bar remaining open to 10:00pm.
