Yep, cheap & quick would describe this place. My co-workers brought this back to the office as take out though, as their website says, I had passed this place about 1000 times and never stopped. Stupid me! My co-worker said he's been eating here "for years". Both of us are Atlanta natives.
We both got a no-frills BBQ Pork sandwich, and by that I mean "meat on a bun", and the Brunswick Stew (both pictured). The bun was one of those dime a dozen white bread Sunbeam buns that could be classified as "comfort food" by some, I suppose. It doesn't add anything to the taste of the pork but it doesn't compete with it either so, winning! The pork itself was very flavorful and there was plenty of it. When I first saw it, wrapped in a sheet of wax paper, I thought it wouldn't be enough food as it looked the size of a regular biscuit, but surprise, upon unwrapping it, found it was chock full of pork and was plenty enough of a sandwich, especially when I paired it with a small container of Brunswick Stew.
Now, I'm not a Brunswick Stew fan typically so I have little frame of reference to compare this to. I will say that judging it on it's own merit, it was quite good, very tasty and I slurped it down faster than I'm willing to admit. The corn in it seemed fresh, not canned. It had a slight "bite" to it going down and that is a good thing. I could have eaten more so I suppose that's enough to recommend it. ;)
The BBQ sauce (though it says so on their website), as any BBQ aficionado would know by looking at it, is vinegar based. There is no other options for sauce so if you're used to a thick, sweet, ketchup style sauce, you won't find it here. Again, typically not a fan of Carolina sauce but this was extremely good and it went down with the rest of my sandwich, post haste.
Now that it's on my radar, I will definitely go back! Yum!
