Russell's BBQ in Elmwood Park

Had a recent visit. The food is still good and cheap. Oddly enough the service was terrible. The place was empty, it was off hours 8PM on Tuesday night, and the staff was a bit confused.

Several orders were wrong. For a place that has been around for decades, this was a bit of a surprise.

There was a throw down rug that was ripped, which people were tripping over, I pointed this out to the staff, which they fixed with gaffer's tape. They should have removed or replaced the rug. Oh well.
