Their meats come out in large platters. It's more than enough for you and a friend. What's truly awesome about Union is that they give you the option of their sidecars, which are smaller portions of their meats (pork, brisket, chicken). Variety is the spice of life and Union gives you a chance to mix it up! You can have a burger and a sidecar with no judgements.
Their sides remind you of mom's kitchen. Specifically the cheesy potatoes taste just like Easter Sunday and their green bean casserole reminds me of Thanksgiving at the Rei's household. I didn't bother getting their Mac and cheese since Vinsetta serves up the same kind and though I like it, I don't love it. The sweet potato mash is another winner mixed with jalapeño that gives it a slight kick. Their sides are small so you need to order a good amount. I personally think for three bucks a pop they should be slightly larger, but that's ok. It's not a deal breaker.
The sidecar brisket was good. Tender and not tough. You can cut it with a fork and it's a nice flavor. I sampled all of the barbecues and landed on my favorites being the Tennessee and Hell sauce. One sweet and one spicy just how I like em'! The pork was a little mountain of goodness. Not my favorite but would I get it again? Absolutely. However I would like to try something else like the Porker burger.
I notice at BBQ places I like I will be more adventurous and order a variety of options and try new things. At BBQ places I love, I tend to stick with favorites because if I don't order it I'll have deep deep food regrets and a sadness in my heart all day. Even if the food I ordered was delicious. It's like I'm abandoning my GOTOs and I just can't do that to them...
At the end of the meal, there was sooooo much food left. There were 5 sides, one mountain of pork, and a sidecar of brisket that was ingested. You can easily bring home the pork and have a monstrous pork sandwich for the next day. All of this for a little less than 30 bucks. Now go drop 30 doll-ahs like it's hot and try them out!
