Seattle has almost no good barbeques ?? so I went here with high hopes and they were dashed. The meat was tough and tasteless. The sauce added nothing. Four of us went and ordered different things and general consensus was that there was not reason to return.

After spending 10 bucks for a sandwich, small side, and a drink I hoped it would be some darn good BBQ. I was sadly disappointed. I grew up in the South, I know what BBQ is supposed to taste like and this ain't it. The pulled beef brisket, while tender, lacked any real flavor. I even asked for the spicy sauce in hopes of getting the most out of my 10 dollar lunch and was let down by that too. The Mac 'n Cheese was very good, shame I only got a dixie cup sized portion of that as a side. The most flavorful portion of my lunch was the hotlink, the one item they don't make themselves. When it comes to BBQ I'll take good and I'll take cheap and I understand that you cant always have both, but in this case I didn't get either.

Pros: They take credit cards

Cons: tepid flavorless "BBQ", overpriced

So I'm watching the food network hungover from my weekend of excessive drinking during Seafair, when the intense craving for BBQ just hits me. Normally I'd drive over to Jones or Pecos Pitt but I was entirely too hungover to drive that far. Slo Joe's was close enough, I mean how bad could it be?
I should have realized something was wrong when there was hardly a customer in sight for noon on a Monday, esp with all the construction worker bees around that area. I asked how "hot" was your hot, and the server replied "not that hot", OKAY this is supposed to be a BBQ joint, and HOT should be mouth burning, sweat pouring, stomach is gonna hurt tomorrow HOT... ie Pecos. So I order the pulled pork with a side of Mac and Cheese and Corn Salad. The smell was off, didn't smell like BBQ, it was cold and lacked flavor and a little tough. The sides were okay nothing to write to mom about, and the chips were super salty, no wonder I'm retaining so much water... Anyhow I'm out 11 bucks and still craving some good spicy BBQ. I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
