Sunday the Mr. and I were out and about gathering office supplies to change over all the files for the company, since it's a new year and things go from one file cabinet to an other, the old out into storage and new files are once again started. It was a rather gray and chilly day, but we managed to get the things we needed, then it was time for a late lunch/ early dinner. He said he had been over to the Brooklyns BBQ for lunch with our son (I must have missed my invite *grin*), and wanted to take me there......okay! It sits in the back of a little strip mall.
It isn't a very large place, notice the gray sky....brrrr! it was cold by now.
Redneck pallet sign???? really???? I wasn't impressed!
This cute little sign was in the front window. "best in town"........they don't know the Ogle Boys!
Well, it was game day after all!
You get a sneak peek at the menu before being seated, then they bring one to your table. I guess they were expecting a long line......there wasn't one Sunday.
More like a sports bar than a BBQ place (to me) There were 8 televisions in this place, one had a hockey game, one was a local channel and all the rest were football.......all the same game!!
Don't get me wrong, I do like football, but this crowd was really into the game, the noise was more than sitting AT the game itself!
I hope these people didn't mind me taking their picture......but I don't think they even noticed. I found the place to be a little on the dark side as well as noisy.
They did have a patio area with free standing heaters. A few adults went out with their kids during the game's half time........too cold for me!
There really wasn't much art on the walls, but I did find this scale sitting on the wall between booths. I thought it was really the coolest thing in the whole place!
Our meal arrived before the appetizer, the Mr. ordered, along with his salad. This is my plate, baked potato, tri-tip and coleslaw and a good cold beer! Now all who frequent my blog, know MY boys can cook some mean BBQ (smoked meat). This was an okay meal........I know, I know......I'm spoiled by MY men!! LOL!! The best thing on the plate was the baked potato, I didn't care for the slaw at all, not sure what seasoning they used, left a very bitter taste in my mouth. Now the Mr. ordered a Bourbon BBQ wing plate. The wings were a tad over done, but that BBQ sauce was the bomb! The Hush puppies, our appetizer, were WELL done and a little dry by the time we finally got them. Somebody dropped the ball on our order, and I think the appetizer was forgotten all about until we said something.
Will I go back here?? I always give a place at least two tries, maybe next time not on the weekend.
So now I'm heading over to the Altered Book Lover blog to link up to the T-gang, grab a cup, glass, or bottle and join me.
