Had 2 plate meal. "Moist" brisket, turkey breast,, macaroni salad, Coke slaw. Overall a terrible meal 1). brisket was maybe 3/4" tall and very chewy. Flavor was okay but a bear to eat. Turkey was hit and miss. One piece succulent while next was dry. I tried to use Bbq sauce but could not get over the sour cherry taste it gave to the meat. The Coke slaw was basically sweetened kimchi which is not what I was looking for. The only bright spot was macaroni salad which had good and typical flavor or this dish. I looked in back at slab and you could tell it was dry from where I was. So 1 out of 5 for me. Everyone in there was getting the chopped beef special. Maybe I should have tried it but if came with nasty Bbq sauce I would have to skip it. Busy as hell. Don't know why.
