Piles of meat will defeat any person. Including lil ol' me. Why am I even talking about this? Recently my team wanted to go to dinner to celebrate my boss' big move to a new group. Typically a team dinner might include drinks, a couple courses, etc. Not my team. They like eating contests. Once they went out and ate wings until the 2nd place winner was sweating bullets. Another time some of them went out to do the "hottest curry in America" challenge.
This time was all you can eat BBQ. See below.
It also includes tasty sides such as:
- Beer braised cowboy pinto beans
- White shoepeg corn pudding
- Sweet potato bourbon mash
- Green bean casserole
- Smokey chipotle deviled eggs
- Confetti coleslaw
- Cool as a cucumber salad
We split the table longways so we sat across from the opposing team. The cornbread butter was out of play. Meat was split evenly in pieces as each new platter arrived. All sides had to be consumed. Bones had to be approved by the the other team before being discarded.
We ate for 2 hours.
Oh, how was the food? Um....the brisket was really tender but fatty (easily separated though). The ribs were good but I've had better. I didn't bother with the chicken (too many bones to work through) and the sides were pretty good. (I avoided the heavy carbs for purposes of keeping volume free in my belly.) The coleslaw was peppery, cucumber salad was refreshing and tart, sweet corn pudding, respectable green bean casserole.
Thankfully, we didn't partake (though it was put into consideration as a tie breaker) but they also serve yummy looking cupcakes. The PB&J cupcake are the most popular.
All You Can Eat Mondays are $25 per person (for meat and sides). A great spot for groups and a fun atmosphere.
