What we ate:
I had the pork Butt Burger, which was the special, with fries and beans.
Scott had the blackened tilapia, with cheesy corn and beans.
What we thought:
The Butt Burger had a nice level of smoke flavor, and the sauce, while not a typical KC type, was yum. The beans are just so-so; not bad, but not good enough to make
me want to actually eat them (Scott says my homemades are better). The fries, on the other hand, may very well be the best I've ever eaten.
Tilapia: Scott gives the blackened tilapia a thumbs up. (Seriously, I just asked him what he thought, and he gave me a thumbs up.) Then he said it "satisfied
my palate, and left me desiring the next bite," but that sounds too dorky to post. ANYWAY, I liked the tilapia, too, and the side of sauce that came with it. Cheesy corn was pretty good, as well.
The small things matter:
Pickles, while a mere afterthought to many, are one of my bbq must-haves. RJ's are thickish, rippled, crispy, and delicious. I would have asked for extras, but ate WAY too many fries anyway, and thought Scott was going to have to roll me down the hill to the car as it was.
Service: EXCELLENT. Friendly, helpful, fast, even in the middle of a lunch rush.
Atmosphere: Hey, we like to eat. We're not all into the whole atmosphere thing, but in case you are, RJ's looked like a typical kind of bbq thing. It was clean, clean, clean--looked white glove tested all over.
Eat there again? Yes, no doubt--we plan on going back on an evening when they have live music.
