Hickory Hog Pt Pleasant

Took the kids to Jenk's for some quarter sucking fun this morning and went to the Hog for lunch afterwards.

Nice location, right next to Rita's and across from Scarra's so lots of italian ice choices for dessert afterwards.

My son had his usual order of chicken wings that he gets everywhere that has them. So far Jack's in W Long Branch is our favorite and this was good but not good enough to displace Jack's as wing king.

My daughter and I shared the bbq rib combo with cinnamon apples and fries as the sides. The apples were a big flop, but the fries were crispy enough to make both kids happy as we all dipped them into the wonderful Southern house-esq bbq sauce. It is very possible that is the same exact sauce they used to have.

The baby backs were the best of the two types of ribs on the combo, but in retrospect I should have gotten some of them with the cajun dry rub instead of sauced. The St Louis ribs were good, but not outrageous.

All in all, a good, albeit expensive lunch at $50 for me and two kids, not counting the $10 for some good ices afterwards. Not quite good enough to make me drive all the way there just to eat, but a good choice if you are in the neighborhood and missing Southern House's sauce.
