|A hearty, legit brisket sandwich|
On this first visit, we split a brisket sandwich, french fries and a kale salad and so far I'm impressed. The brisket sandwich ($10) featured thick-cut, tender slices that were more rustic than a deli-style brisket and heartier than the fairly delicate bbq brisket at Home State. It was well-balanced with the now-ubiquitous pickled onions and some roasted garlic parsnip puree for creaminess. The homemade potato chips were delicious; we ordered nicely-cooked fries too just because. A kale salad balanced things out somewhat, though the deep-fried croutons added their own layer of decadence.
