Had a friend fly me out a BBQ sandwich with them...it was better half a day old with a soggy bun than what I've found around here.
And Flibber doesn't stop with dissing Denver's barbecue:
World class?? Are you kidding? Denver metro food (including BBQ -- hahaha!) borders on third world compared to true world class food. We are hurting for outstanding food and choices here in Denver. Hell, when Anthony Bourdain came to Denver....his pick for outstanding food was a goddam hot dog vender downtown. That says it all.
What do you think about barbecue in Denver? What do you consider world class in the local dining scene?
