Did someone say BBQ?!

Last Tuesday after kickball I was so excited - a friend from high school Facebooked me and said he was in town for a couple of days! He lives in Chicago and I haven't seen him in 4+ years!

He knew he was going to be dining with the Food Hussy so I had to be sure and take him someplace good! (no pressure!) We were next to Eastgate Mall so I let him choose between Ban Thai and City BBQ. I pretty much knew - I was dealing with a big Iowa guy - he wasn't going to choose Thai! We headed to the Anderson Township location. They also have locations throughout Ohio.

You go up to the counter and order - the food is prepared fast food style and you take it to your table. On the table is a nice array of sauces - I stuck with the Sweet City sauce - it tends to be my favorite type.

They had a special on the whole rack of ribs which two of our party got. It looked pretty good and both guys cleaned their plates! I knew I couldn't handle that!

My bf and I decided to get pulled pork sandwiches and sides. The macaroni & cheese wasn't good...it felt like it had sat around all day and had no flavor and the noodles were complete mush. The beans were okay. The beans were fine...the cornbread was fine...none of it was shockingly good but it wasn't too bad. I was pretty disappointed in the mac & cheese. The sandwich and pork was good - as was the sauce.

And yes - finally a photo of the Food Hussy and her buddy Darwynn!

Overall - City BBQ was fine. It's no Montgomery Inn but I don't even like that very much. I think I need to try some of the BBQ carts around the city.

Any recommendations?
