As long as I have lived here I have heard one thing, when it comes to ‘cue, over and over:
Sonny Bryan’s. Sonny Bryan’s. Sonny Bryan’s.
And as long as I have lived here, for some reason, I just never got around to trying them. Until now.
They have a nice selection of meats and sides but I saw they had a combo rib/chicken platter and thought that was genius. Serve it up!
What arrived was some of the smallest chicken wings I had ever seen. They were showered in a pedestrian sauce that had some decent kick but pretty generic. I was dumbfounded. Switching to the ribs I found there to be a lot of meat on them-there bones— although mostly dried-out tasting. It was like they had been sitting in a hot tray or something for a little while. The BBQ sauce was nice and tangy, and necessary to keep these ribs hydrated and moving. Honestly I have had better tasting ribs purchased out front of a local grocery store.
Overall I was kind of at a loss. Just stopped in my tracks. Is this another case of ordering the wrong thing again? Not to be rude or say the food was horrible (it wasn’t) but I just don’t get it. The reputation of this place is a MONSTER. What I got was meek.
