Cowboy Way BBQ
Rancher-turned-restaurateur Daniel Placencia dishes up trophy winning chili with chunks of pork and a fiery, thick sauce. Cowboy Way in Palm Springs serves fall-off-the-bone pulled pork, baby back ribs, tri-tip, and chicken with crunchy Kansas City coleslaw, too. All sandwiches come with a choice of cornbread, potato salad, ranch beans, slaw, or macaroni salad. The dining room is home to both a small bar and well-spaced tables with fake cow fur tablecloths, and the restaurant boasts its own giant smoker—which Placencia insists is s the key to preparing great BBQ and uses only red oak and hickory wood.
