Golden Pub/Memphis BBQ (Saddle Brook)

ELA | Feb 2, 201508:54 AM

The Golden Pub -- Memphis BBQ in Saddle Brook...in short...pass, don't bother. The person who greeted us as we walked in was very nice, personable. Unfortunately, that was the highlight. Service was so-so at best. One staff person was outright not nice. Poor attitude and temperament. The bartender, was simply going through the motions at best, she was not nice at all. Almost seemed bothered that I arrived and wanted a drink. Indifferent, almost nasty look and all. LOL. We were here for a take-out order and I wasn't going to order any BBQ either. Based upon my experience, I would be absolutely shocked if the BBQ was good.

Food -- I didn't like it. They screwed up my order and brought a sandwich instead of the entree/dish, thus I didn't get any of the accompanying food/sides (whatever was supposed to come with it -- salad, potatoes, vegetables, etc. -- I don't even remember). So, while I got the sandwich -- of course I was charged for the entree! LOL. That said, the sandwich wasn't good at all. Massive hero roll compared to the piece of chicken on it. Poor execution and preparation. I question the quality of the chicken as well -- fatty, stringy, etc. On the other entree ordered -- they forgot the side of pasta that was supposed to come with that meal. The rest of the food just wasn't that good. Bland, no flavor to speak of, so so at best. Just nothing to get enthusiastic about or enjoy.

Based upon my experience -- I won't go back and if I was looking for that kind of food -- basic, variety, burgers, chicken, sandwiches, etc. -- the Gotham City Diner, which is not too far away, blows this place away!
