Cheddar-jack cheeses, bacon, red onions, chipotle ranch. $9.99
Lynchburg Legends Bar & Grill, Memphis TN
Hmm, this was really greasy but I liked the flavors enough. What I didn’t like was how SLOW the kitchen was. Other tables around us actually left because they had been waiting for their food way to long. The place wasn’t even busy. 😦
Includes beans, slaw, biscuits, and deviled egg. Any two meats $19.95
Germantown Commissary, Memphis TN
This was my first Memphis style bbq experience in Memphis and I was not impressed. The pork ribs were SO dry! The pulled shoulder was less dry, but still on the dry side. I had to douse them with plenty of bbq sauce to make them more palatable. The service was also kinda rude and inattentive. Not a great start for my trip!
Spit-roasted pulled chicken, avocado, black bean puree, jalapeno slaw, bourbon bbq sauce, on toasted ciabatta. $10.95
Split Bread, San Francisco CA
I liked the flavors of this sandwich, but the chicken was on the dry side. I think that’s been a theme every time I’ve been to Split Bread. The proteins have always been dry. Not good…
Slow smoked brisket, served with pit-smoked beans. $11.95
Memphis Minnie’s, San Francisco CA
Mmm, I love the beef brisket at Mephis Minnie’s! It’s super tender and very flavorful. I will admit that some of the pieces were on the dry side this time around. They certainly put plenty of brisket in this sandwich. Noms!
Bbq pork belly, poached egg, potatoes, smoked cream cheese, tomato aioli, $14
Heritage, Richmond VA
The service here was horrendous and so was this dish! It was truly a hot mess. The egg was the lightest poach I’ve ever seen. The albumen was still SO translucent and slimy. The smoked cream cheese (and there was a lot of it) had a horrible grainy texture and the flavor was overwhelming. Suffice it to say I was disgusted and will never return to this horrible place.
Cheeseburger topped with crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and Shack bbq sauce. Served with order of French fries. $9.39
Shake Shack, Tysons VA
Don’t get me wrong, this burger was very tasty but I just wish that the fried shallots weren’t SO greasy! I liked how they tasted but not how they felt in my mouth. Everything else was pretty spot on though! Mmm…
Tung Sing Restaurant, San Francisco CA
Meh, this isn’t the best but it was close to my old apartment so it was convenient to grab one on the way home.
