A Plus Grocery

This is a public service announcement. A Plus Grocery on Mockingbird at Lemmon in Dallas advertises "BBQ" on their storefront. Do not attempt to ingest this sorry excuse for smoked meat.

After I ordered a sliced brisket sandwich, the kitchen staffer quickly grabbed a plastic wrapped portion of brisket and tossed it in the microwave. Once it had been recooked too nearly beyond recognition, it was unwrapped and tossed onto an dry toasted white bun. I immediately spat out the first bite I took, then I headed over to Big Al's for lunch instead. A star rating of any sort would be too great of a compliment.

Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
