At momo's BBQ recently, I had perhaps the overall worst restaurant experience of my entire life.
Maybe they try to do too much... And aren't much good at anything.
1: It's got a "sports bar" feel and ambience- yet there are only 6 TVs- 2 of which had the same broadcast showing.
2: They have a vast selection of micro brews- yet when I asked for a better description of a Lagunitas pale ale (on tap) the bartender could only come up with "it's a pale ale." No s**t, Sherlock. I mean, seriously?
3: They had live music- and the duo was alright, but in this room of hard surfaces, it's loud enough already. A live act or band just serves to make it louder than it naturally is.
4: The food. First off, everything, and I mean EVERYTHING- with the single exception of the fresh baked corn bread- that arrived in time for dessert- was just about ice cold. Tho the St Louis ribs were OK, and almost warm- the pulled pork was nasty, flavorless, and did I mention cold? I had ordered the "combo", yet the kitchen sent the ribs out alone. The server had to go back and get the pork. I had the Luau Beans. Cold. My GF had the chili. Cold. The corn bread should have come with the meal, but since they didn't have any on hand it was baked in haste, screwed up a couple of times, then kinda thrown at us after we had already finished our meals!
To her credit, the server was good, but seemed frustrated at the lameness of the kitchen staff, and was more or less apologetic while not coming right out to apologize.
Bottom line: Momo's should decide what they want to be, then make some effort to achieve whatever it is. MAYBE it was an "off" night, but THE one thing that Momo's was on March 22, 2014 was LAME, like the lamest. They totally nailed lame. At least they nailed something.
