So, in came Lockharts, a young restaurant with a lot of potential. One may think, "How can you eff up barbecue?" You totes can. Lots of people do. There are many O'shite BBQ places out there. However, this is NOT one of them. Don't let the early evening emptiness fool you. In fact, love it while you can, because around 6:30pm on a Friday you'll see a whole crowd of people standing around your seat like vultures waiting. Reminds me trying to find parking at Eastern Michigan University. You always felt bad that you were stalking someone, but you wanted not to walk 5 miles, so you did it anyway. Ok, tangent over.
Good eats: Pork Nachos (homemade chips, jalapeños, cheese, onions, tomatoes, and … pork. Can't go wrong there.), fried green beans and aioli, burnt ends, chicken wings, and frito pie, to name a few!
I'm partial to the pork as evidenced by my photos. I am a lover of the pig product. You get a plate of pork and two sides for $12. The pork is cooked just right. Tender and moist. Juicy and delicious. By the end of the plate you realize that you ate a small pig and yet you still want more. That's how you know it's good. But just like Slows, the meat is nothing without their sauces. Try one or try them all! If you haven't been yet, go in for a quiet meal around early happy hour and sample some cheap, delicious food. The staff is friendly, the food is goooood, and bonus, there is outdoor seating. Get it!
