It was the night before Christmas and all through the house was the smell of mouthwatering pulled pork from Maverick’s.
This year, our Christmas Eve dinner came from a pig who gave its life to make us very happy. That’ll do pig, that’ll do.
Located in a strip mall on Lexington Avenue in Roseville, Maverick’s Real Roast Beef is a delightful meat palace, not to be overlooked.
Looking over their menu, I eyed the words, Carolina Pork Sandwich. It had me at Carolina. If you haven’t devoured Carolina Gold BBQ sauce, you are missing out, my friends. It’s tangy, sweet, with just an inkling of heat.
Maverick’s slow roast all their pork – and you can taste it.
They serve up slow-roasted baby back ribs, which have replaced my usual sugar plum Christmas Eve dreams. After tasting what they can do with pork, I will be back for those ribs.
If you love the meat but want to cook it your way, Maverick’s sells meat by the pound – brisket, beef, pork, and turkey.
Make sure to grab one of their many sauces, including the above mentioned excellent Carolina Gold BBQ, homemade Cheddar Cheese sauce, or Sweet Whiskey Habanero Sauce. And take on one of their sides like the classic onion rings, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes or regional favorite – cheese curds.
