Brown bag in Naples

After reading great things about this little hole in the wall, I decided I had to try it.This little take out only place is in a small strip mall (two other stores) an alteration shop and a small mini-market that reeked of floor cleaner. The brown bag is a BBQ spot famous for it's ribs and chicken and also has some sandwiches. I got the feast to go which consisted of 2 pounds of babyback ribs, a chicken and sides of onion rings, coleslaw, and beans. The ribs were fall off the bone and very tasty and the chicken was pretty good too.But the sides are terrible.The onion rings were soggy and tasteless and the deep fry oil looked like it hadn't been changed for quite a long time.The beans were sitting in a crock pot on the counter and were again tasteless and boring. The coleslaw looked like it was put through a food processor until all that was left was cabbage water and once again tasteless.If I lived a little closer I would go back for the ribs though, but thats it. I would also call my order ahead and avoid the 25 minute wait and also having to hang out in a very skanky parking lot that I would not like to be after dark. Also the place is so smoke filled you can't breathe and you almost can't see your way to the counter.
