I was driving up to Easton PA for a couple of business appointments and I saw an intriguing sign at the Firehouse Plaza. "Fat Daddy's Southern BAR-B-Q." I noted the location and while I attended to my appointments kept thinking of the great meal I would receive as soon as I was finished. I wrapped up and headed back toward my Mecca of Mesquite and Hickory. I pulled in as was immediately concerned because I didn't smell any smoke from a smoker. The next thing I saw raised my hackles a little. It was a sign, "Now Serving Fried Chicken." Well I looked at this little hole in the wall restaurant and wondered what was going on. Where was the aromas and focus on BBQ? The first menu boards were chicken specials, then Tamales and Burritos and finally BBQ. I said howdy and ordered the Pulled Pork South Carolina Style and Baked beans and grabbed a pop from the fridge. My food came up instantly and I noticed a long line of Mustard and Ketchup pump dispensers containing different BBQ sauces. I like a sauce but I always try my first BBQ from a place bare so I can taste the expertise of the grill master. Well the first bite told me. NO GRILLMASTER. It was lukewarm and didn't have any bark or smoke flavor. Worse was for South Carolina, No Vinegar or Mustard flavor. No Tomato base either just bland under seasoned roast pork. I almost cried. I have had BBQ from Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, North and South Carolina and was never so embarrassed that someone called this BBQ. The service was pleasant and the Baked Beans excellent. (I wish I had ordered just the baked beans).
I had taken a menu for my collection and that's when I noticed. Except for the name BBQ isn't on their hand written looking menu. First Fold has ALL NEW FRIED CHICKEN on one side and Hot Dogs on the other. The flap is sides for the chicken.The center back is Tamales, Burritos and Tex Mex trio. I cannot rate the rest of the menu but if you are looking for BAR-B-Q at Fat Daddy's Southern Bar-B-Q you had better look elsewhere
