1st course choices were:
Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Red Pepper Flakes and Lemon Aioli--this is usually $9. The brussel sprouts were cooked through but there was too much oil.
Lil Apple Salad with a maple vinaigrette--usually $7. Arugula, baby spinach, gala apples, goat cheese, spicy pecans and red onions. I liked the salad, especially the pecans. The red onions would have been better if they were pickled.
The last 1st course choice was cup of smoked brisket chili with grated cheese and green onions.
The second course included:
BBQ Smoker Plate (Choice of Brisket, Pork, Pulled Chicken, Smoked Sausage or Ribs), served with Smashed Potatoes and Coleslaw. I chose the ribs which was 1/2 rack. This is usually $24. The ribs were tender but not fall-off-the-bone. The smashed potatoes were creamy and the coleslaw was good. It wasn't too heavy on the sauce. The biscuit was light and fluffy
Other choices for the 2nd course were Oven Roasted Chicken Breast (Mary's Organic) with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Sautéed Vegetables in a natural jus or Blackened Salmon Caesar with Romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, house made croutons and Caesar dressing.
Dessert options were:
Key Lime Pie--usually $7. This was very creamy and not too sweet. My only complaint was the graham cracker crust was too thin.
Mississippi Mud Pie--$8. Mocha ice cream drizzled with Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce, Caramel Bourbon Sauce, Topped with Candied Pecans on an Oreo Cookie Crust. The mocha ice cream was very subtle and I didn't see any pecans.
I had Ace Pear Cider with dinner--$4. I love the pear cider.
This was a great Restaurant Week dinner. I saw a lot of plates of fried chicken going by and I'll have to go back to try it.
