So, after missing my opportunity yesterday, I made sure I got there on time today. And to make up for lost time, I ordered one of everything (Pulled Pork sandwich, chili with all fixins (sour cream, chipotle, onions, cheese, rice and beans) and the sweet tea.
I am happy to report that the worst part of the meal was the sweet tea. Ugh. Not into it at all. Granted, the portion is humongous, but I guess I just don't like that style of tea (have had the NC version of sweet tea and loved it though).
The Pulled Pork sandwich, which has been reviewed plenty on this board, was true to its reviews. Very tasty, not too dry but very oily. Opening the container (you make the sandwich), I was shocked at the amount of oil present. The cole slaw was very good. Not the best the city has to offer, but very good (carrots were a bit dry). Overall, a good sandwich and definitely worth return visits.
The Chili on the otherhand was what shined the most. Only flaws - the processed shredded cheese was rather bad and worthless. Real cheese would have been better. The other...small portion. Eating both is too big a meal and having just the chili, I think, might not be enough...(but then again, I didn't eat the tortilla they give you). I recommend getting it with the sour cream and chipotle. Wow! The flavors are great and has a nice kick to it. The chunks of meat are great and not able to decide on rice or beans, I asked for 1/2 of each. Very nice thick and dark chili. Yum, a winner...and the only reason I would be happy for a few more cold days (today not being one).
Lastly, the most underrated part of the lunch...the guy serving it. Wow! Very pleasant, liked to talk about the food while working (and even a little before/after). And without getting judgmental, not what I expected at a "street cart". (into food, cordial, friendly, etc.)
