Oinkster has risen IMHO

I just got back from giving it another try, after two early disastrous attempts. A friend convinced me to give it another chance. I'm glad I did. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was excellent, on par with pulled pork sandwiches I've had in North Carolina. The fries were also excellent, perfectly cooked and went very well with both the garlic mayo and the mustard sauce from the dispenser on the counter. I even splashed some of the North Carolina bbq sauce on them as well, and liked that too. I also liked the pickled spicy carrots on the counter.

I wasn't crazy about their brand of brewed ice tea, but at least it wasn't polluted with some sort of stupid artificial fruit flavor like so many ice teas are these days. Is there anything more awful than ordering an iced tea and not being warned by the waiter that it's got some sort of horrible passion fruit or peach or some flavor like that in it? Well, yes, of course there are a lot of things more awful than that, but that's an awful one too.

It was, at $10.28 for the regular combo, more expensive than I would normally expect to spend for what, despite the slowness of it, is essentially fast food. But the quality was good enough that I really can't complain.

I will return, and try something else.
