The chicken/ribs at Brook's BBQ fundraisers is always great and when in the area, we try to stop in to the restaurant. Our visit on August 21 might be our last. The chicken, usually juicy, flavorful, and cooked perfectly was dry, bland, and black/burnt. I realize good bbq has char but this chicken was unlike any we have had from Brook's. We even mentioned this to the server but she basically shrugged her shoulders and stated everyone has different tastes. Really. The pulled pork was dry and lacked that richness pulled pork has. It was only made satisfactory by mixing in the small container of bbq sauce provided on the side.
The homemade mini loaf of bread was fresh and delicious as was the mac salad. The salad bar is simple (iceberg lettuce, usual toppings/dressings, pasta salad & coleslaw) but fresh and tasty.
