(NOTE: As I mention HERE, this will be the second-to-last restaurant review I do on here... for now.)
"The Ukrainian" and I really love our BBQ joints. It was one of the highlights of our trip to San Antonio some months back, and although it's not a common dinner choice for us, we always love it when we go.
This is ironic for at least a couple of reasons.
First of all, I try to be meatless. Yes, I went back to fish about eight months ago, but I don't think I could ever munch on things like ribs again.
Second, I don't like the taste of grilled food very much. That char-ish taste, especially on veggies, is kind of icky to me. Thus, when I attend friends' barbecues, I kind of squirm when they offer me grilled veggies in lieu of meat. At home barbecues, I normally eat chips and salad. :$
Anyway, this place is called Woodranch and is located as part of a large mall in Arcadia, CA. Apparently, I didn't learn my lesson about mall food the last time we had dinner there, but this was a pleasant difference.
The bread looked wonderful, but was pretty greasy.
This was the salad that came with "The Ukrainian"'s combo. It was very good for a side salad!
Here's the combo. I think we were hungry and in a hurry to eat, so sorry that this picture doesn't show the meat goods too well. I will say, though, that this Mac N Cheese was the best I have probably EVER had... such good, sharp cheese flavor. My vegan versions be darned. ;) Creamy. And probably stomach-churning if I had anymore than a couple of bites. I'll definitely be getting some next time I visit. ;)
Here's my portebella and zucchini burger with a baked potato, which as you can see, was sprinkled in huge salt. All in all, very tasty. I didn't add butter or sour cream/chives to this... I drowned it in BBQ sauce from an unpictured bottle, which is a usual practice for me.
