Wanting to try new places on this trip, I did some searching. And Bullocks came up with high rating in several travel apps. The final item that said, go to Bullocks was one of the students in a class I am teaching said I should go there. So I decided to give it a try.
I drive over to Bullocks to have a late meal (7PM). When I get out of the car I am not greeted with that nice smell of hardwood smoke; and when I step inside, it smells like a fish camp and not a BBQ restaurant! That’s OK I thought as I was lead to my booth; I’ve had good BBQ in a fish camp before.
The waitress gives me my menu and takes my drink order. I left searching the menu to find BBQ; it was very difficult to find. I thought it would be a featured item! Afterall, Bar-B-Q is in the NAME!!! Finally, there it is. Hmm, is this a BBQ joint or what? I had already concluded that it was not. Ok time to place the order:
Spicy Pulled Pork
Mac and Cheese
I’ll get the sides out of the way. Nothing spectacular about them. The Mac and Cheese was cheesy and it tasted like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with some extra cheese. The Potato Salad was kind of bland. The baked beans were pretty good.
The Spicy Pork
What can I say? It was bit dry, and there was no sauce to wet it down with. My waitress didn’t come back by very often so I just started eating. The flavor was OK, not horrible but nothing spectacular. I really cannot say anything more. It was uninspiring.
Verdict: If I ever come back I’ll try something other than BBQ
The banana pudding was ok, again nothing that made me go WOW.
Verdict: Because I like banana pudding I might get this again if I come here. Just depends on how I feel about the extra calories.
