My wife and I have eaten there several times and will be doing so again. But the uneven results mean we don't yet know what to expect when we return. Yesterday (early Friday evening) my wife ordered the ribs, which were overcooked (burned, actually) but still pretty good. I ordered the Barbecue Sampler with potato salad and pinto beans. The ribs were like hers, but the tri-tip and brisket were absolutely great, if conspicuously well-done. With several varieties of sauce to choose from I stuck with the original, which i liked fine. The potato salad was good; the pinto beans were oversalted and overspiced, and were left in the bowl. Both meals offered very generous helpings, and we left with a "doggie bag." Sweet tea is so sweet you have to chew it; that's what some people like. Our waitress was happy to provide a 50/50 mix which was perfect.
Service was good, and the facility was fine. Prices are very reasonable for such a large meal. I expect they have a challenge with location, which is in the rear of a strip shopping center that would never be seen by anyone driving by, and the sign is lost among many others.
My sense is that it's a challenge to be good at everything, and for that reason you seldom see barbecue/seafood/sandwich shop restaurants. Is it possible that JM is just trying to do too much? I remember the food being more consistently good in past visits, and hope things will return to normal next time around.
