We live in Columbia, SC, the land of mustard based BBQ. I have to admit it but I don't really care for mustard BBQ. If you have to pour sauce all over your meat, to me you are just hiding the fact that you dried out the pig. Anyway, we stopped in for lunch this past Saturday after a visit to the Tangar mall across the street.
When you walk on, the place has a wonderful pit smoke smell. We were seated quickly and our drink orders arrived within 5 minutes. Daughter ordered a cheeseburger and fries and the wife and I split the pulled pork and brisket plate with baked beans and fries. Remember to tell your waiter to leave off the sauce, we did and were happy for it.
The food arrived about 15 minutes later. Daughter said her buger and fries were awesome. I believe it, she is 19, weighs 115 pounds and within a few minutes, nothing was left on her plate except the small metal container that had ketchup in it.
My wife is from Alabama and is picky about the type of BBQ she eats. Her pork was wonderful! Moist, nice smoke flavor and did not need any sauce. For my part, I have been spoiled with our flight crews bringing BBQ brisket back from Texas. I was not disappointed. The brisket was moist and also had a nice mild smoke flavor. Again no sauce needed, I did try the house sauce both regular and spicey, good but not needed. The baked beans were good but a little too runny and the house made French fries were not hot when the food came out. The cheese biscuits that come with the meal were too sweet, need to back off on the sugar.
Almost forgot, wife and I had been in the day before to have a drink and the homemade onion rings. Rings were very good! I would eat here again. Just be sure you don't expect mustard based BBQ and leave off the sauce.
