Boobtastic BBQ

Yeah - I said it - Boobtastic BBQ. There's only one place you can get that - KT's Barbecue in Reading.

I'm not much for stuff like this - I think it's pretty dumb. When he first put the mannequins out there and it was on the news - I pretty much thought, "Um I don't want to go there."

So why did I go? Well Larry and I were hungry and wanted something different than fast food. And we were on the way back from his work on Reading Rd. So there she was - beckoning us to come on in.

She has a "girlfriend" inside the store too. 

Parking can be a bit of a mystery but he has an agreement with the car wash next door - so feel free to park there as long as you're not blocking a bay. It's basically take-out only with a table in front of the store if you're so inclined.

Larry and I each got a pulled pork sandwich ($4.99) and sides ($1.35 each). I think the sandwich came with chips as well.

Sandwich - he microwaved the meat before putting it in the sandwich and there's no sauce. But it wasn't too bad. The sauce is vinegary and thin but has a kick to it. Overall - I liked the sandwich. Not mind-blowing - but not bad either.

Potato Salad - didn't like. It wasn't creamy - more vinegary.

Cornbread - didn't like. It was dry and not very sweet. I know cornbread is very much a matter of taste - some folks probably love it.

Baked Beans (not pictured) - Larry didn't say much but he ate them and said they were good. He's kinda picky - so I take that as a compliment.

The owner is very vocal and can sometimes rub people the wrong way. He's definitely got a New Yorker vibe going on from his time there. But - I like that he's open and honest and chatty. I mentioned I was a blogger and whoooo - that sparked a conversation!! I have to say though - it's a local place and I like supporting that.

Why Should You Go? Well I wanted to love the food - because he's got such a big personality and it's very near to my house - but I didn't. It was okay. It was an eventful stop and I think that's always fun. And - I did like my sandwich.

  1. Yep, the owner definitely rubbed me the wrong way. He was short with us for looking at the "wrong" menu.

    His microwaved BBQ wasn't impressive and we won't be back.
