I usually try to keep my posts positive: What is great as opposed to what is not, but I have to make an exception here.
Tried Ole Time BBQ on Hillsborough St. yesterday for lunch. I had a half rack of baby backs with sides of cole slaw and potato salad.
The ribs: No hint of smoke or crust. The sauce was tart and sour. The meat was best described as "firm." I understand sauce in NC is often vinegar based, but this was really a mess
The potato salad was okay. A little sweet but not bad.
The cole slaw: Finely chopped and not bad. Also had a weird sweet taste to it.
Great atmosphere, disappointing product.
