No. 65 The Lunch Box

I’ve debated writing about The Lunchbox in McDonough, GA for a couple of weeks now, mainly because it just didn’t live up to the basic standards of BBQ. They purport to be a barbeque restaurant, but I have to say, I was unfortunately not impressed. Unless they could walk me to, and show me a smoker, there is no way in the world I believe they smoked a single piece of meat. The pork was dry, the chicken came out of a plastic bag…I saw it from my view into the kitchen, maybe they smoked it off site and bagged it in to the kitchen; I don’t know, but I do know it was less than appetizing. My pork plate came with slaw, brunswick stew, toast, and I ordered a side of beans too. The stew was not memorable, the slaw had that dull outer layer – a clear sign it had been scooped into the little bowl hours, if not a day earlier. They had two versions of the same sauce, one slightly hotter than the other.

So enough about the food, I can’t leave without mentioning the service. Let’s just say when I asked the young woman taking our order if it was her first day, I was astounded when she said “no”.  I could keep going on, but I won’t.

Not recommended.

cute, and just off the square

might look OK, but was disappointing
