Today's bevy of serious smoke joints, like Hill Country and Daisy May's, means high standards for barbecue hopefuls. Despite Fly Fish's (formerly know as Whiskey Sunday) friendly service and spot-on honky-tonk decor, the place doesn't rise to the level of the competition. Standards like pork shoulder were firm and dry--a problem that couldn't be remedied with any of the three house-made sauces. Sides, including mushy baked beans, didn't fare much better. Maybe a showing like this would have been acceptable in the past, but today, it just doesn't cut it.
