Piggy KK does a great job describing the specifics of how ordering works and the layout of the place, so I'll just give you a quick blurb about my visit.
It was a warm Saturday evening in the summer and the hubby and I were meeting another couple there. Lucky for us, our dear friends actually got there a bit earlier and snagged a spot on line(*hugs!*). So I must shamefully admit, I did not suffer through a long wait, though it definitely was slow-moving as Piggy KK mentioned! It seems like people that go there often know to go earlier, because waiting stinks and they do run out of food.
There was a separate line to get drinks, but it was much shorter and some of us got drinks while others held our spot on the food line so it worked out well. They had an awesome bourbon and draft beer selection, perfect pairings for BBQ!
After a round of drinks, we were finally placing our ginormous order at the counter while doing the happy dance! We pretty much got an assortment of everything and once done ordering, the guy at the counter commented "This will be good for 8 people"... except that there were 4 of us! Oops...
Are you ready for this? We had brisket, spicy sausage (delish!), ribs, chicken, cheeks, pulled pork, pork belly...! Along with German potato salad, broccoli salad, coleslaw, and baked beans. Phew, that was a mouth-full. I think going with a group (at least 4) adds to the experience because you can get a variety of meats and sides.
We enjoyed almost everything (the chicken was just ok) and left very happy and very, very stuffed. It was a great time - yummy food (and lots of it!) with wonderful company!
