Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

i was dying to try this spot, as i was just craving some real deal barbeque. so, i drove on down to this spot and made my order. i'll try and be brief.
i could write about 5 paragraphs, but let me just encapsulate, and save you some time: first off, it was way expensive for 'neighborhood barbecue'.
a half slab of ribs, a fried catfish sandwhich, and 3 very CHINCY dixie cup size sides (beans, potato salad, and corn bread), was $26.73...OUCH!!
before leaving, i looked in to the bag and went over my order with the lady, to make sure everything was in the bag, but somehow, when i got home, i realized she forgot to put the barbecue sauce in with the ribs. no sauce? OUCH!!
i actually had to go out again to Kroger and get some. no excuse for this oversight. OUCH!!
my girlfriend said that good ribs should be 'fall-off-the-bone tender', but these were far from it. i had the fried catfishfish sandwhich, which was fair, a portion more than i could eat...but without the pickles and hotsauce, it was like eating two pieces of cornmeal-dipped cardboard on wonder bread.
bottom line: WAY TOO MUCH MONEY FOR SUCH AN EXPERIENCE. for this price, you could share appetizers at J. Alexander's. Or stuff your faces at Las Palmas, and have money left over toward a movie...
forget it...
