The First of Many

Joe and I have decided to start trying different restaurants around Broken Arrow and then review them for fun. I am always looking for opinions on restaurants in BA and I can never find any, so I guess we are just going to be the start!

Our first shot was the locally owned Knotty Pine BBQ.  Joe ordered the two meat plate with macaroni and cheese and french fries as his two sides.  I chose the chopped beef brisket sandwich with fried okra on the side.  We ordered the kids chicken nuggets with BBQ Lays for Connor. The big laugh of the night was when Connor said BBQ is his favorite - the kid who is allergic to beef and pork.

Reviews are that the chicken (both the fried and smoked) was delicious, great fries, but the mac and cheese was just ok.  The seasoning on the beef was not my favorite and neither one of us thought their sauce was good. The sauce was too sweet and didn't have any tang that you would expect from a BBQ sauce.  As Joe would say, if you don't have a good sauce, the rest is just a waste.

It was great to try a new place and the wait staff was fantastic!  However, because of the meat seasoning and the sauce, we will not be going back.
