This week’s choice has been on the radar for awhile now. We noticed it on the way to another lunch spot earlier this summer and then a few days later a friend was raving about it. Finally we made it there, and we aren’t sad about it either!
When we walked in we noticed it was already a hoppin’ place. We always try to get to places “early” to beat the lunch rush so usually we get there around 11:15 and watch the place fill up. This was not the case at Q39. There were already about half of the tables filled with customers! Our waitress immediately brought us a bottle of water for the table and 2 glasses and offered other drink choices. She also explained the menu and some of her favorites for us first timers. After taking our orders I pulled out my phone to check us in on Facebook, as I usually do, and check a couple of things. Not more than 5 minutes after taking our order, the food arrived!
Both meals were DELICIOUS. The beef was tender and not too fatty and the pulled pork was flavorful and moist. They have 3 sauce choices: classic, zesty or chipotle-cilantro. I am a classic kind of girl but the waitress recommended the zesty with the pulled pork and she was not mistaken! It was the right amount of vinegary flavor to go with the pork.
Dad and I were both pleased with the entire experience. We were in and out of there in just over 30 minutes and were glad we went early as there was a wait by the time we left, before noon even hit!
Scores: Dad: 4.5, Me: 4
Next time I need to try the onion straws.
