NRBQ: Grillin' At The Roadside

Mitchell Cohen, Creem, December 1983

THINK OF NRBQ as a diner somewhere off the main highway, serving up Tex-Mex chili, Kansas City barbeque, Philadelphia cheese steaks, New England clam chowder, Chicago deep-dish pizza, Anchor Steam beer on draft. The gamut of American gastronomy. And every time you drop in, the clientele is whooping it up, clearly delighted with each course. So delighted, in fact, that they're concerned lest this place become too popular.
