The hubby decided on a small bbq turkey plate, while I opted for a small bbq pork plate. Each came with two sides and your choice of hushpuppies or rolls. We both selected hushpuppies and bbq beans before diverging, me to coleslaw and him to potato salad.
The bbq beans were dished up in a thick, sweet sauce with a moderate level of spiciness that hit in the back of the mouth as a secondary effect. The beans were left plain, unaccompanied by any of the usual suspects–bacon, onions, etc.
The coleslaw was the minced style that I find singularly unappealing. It still managed to be crunchy and tart but the odd lingering sweetness combined with the texture meant I left most of the dish untouched.
The couple of pickles tossed on the plate as garnish were an alarming radioactive color and tasted like nothing so much as the pickles on fast food hamburgers though they were thicker with crunchy skins.
My husband enjoyed the spicy rub on his turkey plate (shown above) and the hushpuppies but otherwise his meal was unremarked upon.
The atmosphere is about what you expect in a diner styled restaurant and though the service is a bit more attentive than typical, the food was average and felt tired, as though the cooks have made the same dishes one too many times. I wouldn’t object if someone had their heart set on dining there, but I doubt the hubby and I will be back anytime soon.
