Bitter Bob Dishes Up a Sweet Deal
Back in March, we interviewed Bitter Bob about his new barbecue style restaurant, so we recently decided to sneak in for a lunchtime sampling of his cooking.
Bottom line: Bitter Bob's didn't disappoint.
The meat selections all had an excellent texture and the right smokey flavor. Sauces can be served on the side; one a mildly spicy vinegar based Carolina style sauce, the other, a classic red BBQ slather with some subtlety. The sampler platter lets you try most of the best entrees.
The sides were glorious: sweet potato fries were a standout, as were the zesty 5-bean BBQ beans, and exceptionally fresh corn bread. Slaw slightly unispired. Decor: sparse. Service: first-rate.
All in all, if our boy Bob can keep prices at this level, he will have a hit on his hands and have no further cause for bitterness in his world. :-)
