Tasty and agreeably greasy cheese steak with onions. Yumm!
At Jimmy’s BBQ, EVERYTHING is made from scratch. The BBQ meats are house-smoked using hickory and cherry woods, dry-rubbed, and then served to you so you can slather as much of their homemade BBQ sauce on as you’d like. Not only did we come to Jimmy’s on Wednesday (one FREE beer with any order after 5pm), but we had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy himself. He talked to us about the differences in their three types of BBQ sauces, how they smoke their meats, and even was kind enough to give us a sample of their fall-off-the-bone ribs. Now that’s what I call good service!
It’s no surprise knowing how indecisive I am, that we both had to order the Meat Sampler Plate including 5 oz portions of our choice of three meats. Dave ordered the BBQ Chicken, Pulled Pork, and Brisket while I chose the Brisket, Chicken, and Hot Italian Sausage (also from scratch, house smoked). We each got to pick two sides, and per Jimmy’s suggestion we each ordered the Smoked Beans, and then the Dirty Corn Salad and Corn Bread.
