The HQ is in Mesa, but they have 2 Waldo's Express locations...one at 7th St. and Hatcher or Mountain View--somewhere in there--and one at 19th Ave. and Thunderbird. Anyone know anything about them? I haven't tried the one near me--T-Bird. I hope to soon.

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!

About 15 or 20 years ago, Hombre, me and our old Arizona BBQ Association used to hold mini comps and informal how-to classes in a vacant lot next to the one on Main Street in Mesa. I remember that Clay the owner was a nice guy, but don't recall the que being that special. They used to pretty much pack the place on Saturdays. The menu looks like it has changed a bit to include a lot of non-BBQ stuff.

I went to Waldo's Express at T-Bird and 19th Ave. today. It was quite reasonable. I tasted a bit of the brisket, and wished I'd gotten the brisket sammie. Brisket and pork both exhibited smoke rings, but pork had no bark--I saw some skin, made me think they use the whole picnic. Pork was somewhat overdone, not very much smoke flavor, but serviceable. Chicken was the tastiest of the big 3 meats. Tiara and I had the chicken and pork sandwiches, respectively, at $3 each. Brisket or hot link were $4 each. Fries were fantastic--shoestring fries, in regular and spicy. I enjoyed the slightly tangy BBQ sauce, too. For those prices, and fast fast service, Waldo's wins. Don't expect Q 2 U  or Texas BBQ House quality meats, but for 3 or 4 bucks--if you're going past, it'll work!
