Downhill alert (maybe)! Phil's pulled pork

As a fan of Phil's, I'm sad to say my last two visits have been disappointing. The beans, slaw and ribs are all still great, but I love pulled pork, and lately Phil's has been letting me down.

Twice now, I've been served pork that's essentially chopped. It *could've* been pulled -the texture's right; it's falling apart and willing to shred- but seems instead to have just been hacked at with a knife. Practically zero sauce too, although I'm fine with that since I know many people prefer pp that way.

Hope this isn't a harbinger.

And having said all this, I'm going down to the kitchen now to warm up the leftovers from last night. So I guess Phil's hasn't quite lost me yet ;)
