hill country

Just got back from the Epcot Food Court known as Hill Country. On the ride home, deconstructing the meal, my wife and I agreed that the one word to describe the food was "tasteless." Even the iced tea had a backtaste of mint. Can't they leave this perfect beverage unadulterated?

I know bbq. This isn't bbq. I know the pink smoke ring of brisket, but the "moist" offering was laden with undercooked pinkness. My wife said if she didn't know better, she thought the sausage was of the vegetarian variety. NOT ENOUGH SMOKE!!!

The pork ribs and beef ribs disappointed as well, but we thought enough of our dog to bring the beef bone home for him. At least he enjoyed it. Seems he doesn't mind undercooking as much as we do.

As for the sides, corn pudding was the saving grace. Mac and cheese too cheesy, of the cloying kind. Beans were oversweet, with no burnt ends to be found.

Enjoyed the white bread to sop up the bottled sauce, but this is not what I expected to be the highlight of the meal.

Sorry, won't be back. Blue Smoke and RUB do the "q" some much better.
