I wouldn't say that this place is average but neither can I say it's very good. I liked it because it's different.
Looks rough from the outside. Don't be scared...it's ok. Had the pulled pork dinner and it was pretty good. Drier than I had expected (I was expecting lots of sauce) but I know there's different styles of BBQ. The pork went really well with my nicely done baked potato. Tasted very good. Good portion size, very friendly service.
So why not 'very good'? Well, with a little more attention to detail this could be a killer BBQ joint. I got the impression that someone - owner, chef...I'm not sure - was just mailing it in, just trying a little too hard to be different. I like to support local business when I travel but it frustrates me when I see a great little place like this that could be awesome if it just woke up and realized that competition for business is fierce. There's lots of restaurants - chains included - doing things really well.
My advice...go check Hardys out and (hopefully) prove me wrong.
