Kinder's Meats, Deli, BBQ - Ball Tip Steak Sandwich?

Krys | Apr 17, 200506:36 AM

There are handful of Kinder's Custom Meat shops in the East Bay. The location in Hercules always has a crowd.

Jonathan Kauffman says of the Ball Tip Steak Sandwich in the link to his review below:

"Kinder's signature sandwich is a beautifully buttery, lean cut of beef sliced warm and folded into a soft roll with mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato. The ball-tip is barbecue at its most minimalist: The beef isn't heavily rubbed, sauced, or smoked, but slow-roasted until velvety. In the sandwich, there's just enough barbecue sauce -- rich and fruity, but not as sugary as ketchup -- spooned on top to moisten the beef but not compete with it for your attention."

I stopped by to check out the place today, but there was too much of a crowd. Besides the Deli there a meat counter with some of the most impressive beef I have ever seen.

Has anyone tried this place or the ball tip steak sandwich?

In the link to the Kinders website, it says the company started in 1946 in San Pablo.

Not mentioned on the website, but in the take out menu I picked up it says that they also have available "From the Smoker":

Award Winning Tequila Lime Ribs
Baby Back Ribs
Prime Rib
Pork Loin

How about these? Anyone tried them?
