I really like Hillsborough BBQ Co. I have had some really good meals there and a couple that were not as good but definitely not bad. I made an inquiry of our waitress if I could get a half chicken as 2 leg quarters, no breast. Her answer was a quick, curt "no we don;t do that". I don't mind that they don;t want to do that (although the reason is sketchy to me.....having owned a restaurant and after 25 years as a chef I know the issue is usually folks wanting all white and having tons of dark left). it was the attitude. At the end of the meal when the check came I asked if I could use a gift card a certain way. I don;t mind that they preferred doing it a different way. I again got barked at. It was so noticeable that folks at other tables looked over and my wife commented that that was twice I had been barked at.
just seems like a lot of rules and a gate keeper attitude at least by our server. I don;t expect my every request to be deemed as possible wherever I eat but I can ask and I can be responded to reasonably.
All that said the food was very good, as ordered, and still a fav!
