My best friend and I were wanting a unique place to have lunch, as we were sick of always going to chain restaurants. I found this place via TripAdvisor!!!! So we tried it. It's a tiny, but homey place (and clean, even the bathroom!) The waitress was exceptionally wonderful - very attentive and helpful. We each ordered something different so we could sample. I had a BBQ platter and Patty had a Reuben sandwich. The brisket was the most tender I've ever eaten. I really liked that the meat wasn't prepared with the sauce on it. If you don't like the sauce, then it ruins the meal. They served the sauce on the plate in a little cup. No messy, sticky squeeze bottles! The sides of mashed potatoes and baked beans were delish!!! The Reuben had quality corned beef, and was also good. For dessert we had the fried peach pie. It was to die for. I wish it had real peaches, but I guess that would be difficult to maintain consistency. The only complaint - it wasn't big enough! Yummy! Now to my average rating on the value.....for the price, I was mildly disappointed. The portions were small and modest. I love BBQ and am used to huge portions when ordering a platter at other places. When my platter came I was taken aback because of the price. Same with the sandwich. Not to be judgmental, I began thinking about it. Our culture is used to enormous portions at most chain restaurants. This is very unnecessary. Chain restaurants also have the benefit of ordering in mass quantities. The costs can be managed differently. A small, privately owned restaurant must handle things differently. The quality of food is most important. Chef John's is superb so I guess if I equate it that way, the price would be somewhat okay. I will go back but maybe just on occasion because of the value.
