Mueller's in just "Meh"

Wanted bbq and it was already 11:30 by the time we decided, so we figured there'd be at least a 45 minute wait and they could be out of stuff at Franklin's, so we did the now short (tollroads) trip to Muellers.

What a disappointment. When we got there the line snaked all the way in a loop back to the counter, so the wait ended up in line almost an hour. We got the last of the pork ribs and, as always, over-ordered so we'd have plenty of leftovers. I remembered that I didn't much care for their coleslaw, but ordered the potato salad, as I've always loved the super-mustardy stuff...they'd changed the recipe to a now mayo base...blech.

As for the meat, which is the main reason for going, it was VERY under-seasoned...bland, blah and expensive. We got three different kinds of meat and the only thing that had any flavor whatsoever was the jalapeno sausage.

I'm afraid we won't be making that trek again unless someone tells me they've changed back. Pity, as it's what I would say is a Texas bbq tradition.

On the up side, as long as I get moving early enough, Franklin's is da bomb...
