Biscuit - AVOID....

slopefoodie | Nov 12, 2006 06:30 PM

As a huge BBQ fan I was definitely impressed and hopeful when Biscuit had a line out the door on Friday night. We went last night to check it out and I honestly can't recall when I had a worst meal. and the more I think about it, how does one expect good BBQ from a restaurant that recreated itself in a matter of weeks - I mean, isn't BBQ a craft, a skill? But while you can get great ribs at non-bbq restaurants like Waterfront, the food being put forth from Biscuit's kitchen is an insult. How can you truly ruin fried chicken - or even make flavorless biscuits (esp when its your name!!) I can whip out some fantastic one in a shake with my bisquick mix. My fried chicken had zero flavor or spice - completely bland and while the meat was moist, it was lacking and the pieces were just skin and fat - which I am nbow thinking probably cld have been great with a good batter. The ribs that my husband got were tough, not even cooked and flavorless - unedible which did not matter at all to the waitress. And the sauces are not the best too. Whomever on an earlier post recommended bringing your own - is that really what we have come to? Why do I need to bring my own condiments to a restaurant that should be able to have that covered??? It would have been great to have a BBQ spot in the slope - but this is just not it - take a pass, i guarantee you will thank me. Go to sadie mae's for chicken and waterfront for ribs.
