Willard's BBQ, Chantilly: Platter Pricing Quirk

Bob W. | Aug 11, 2005 12:36 PM

Last weekend I took brother Lurker W. to Willard's BBQ on Willard Rd. near the Expo Center and we discovered something interesting.

I ordered a single-meat platter, for $8.50. Lurker (a well-known New England trencherman) ordered a double-meat platter for $11.50.

Both platters were loaded with food, but the meat piles on both were the exact same size. So for three bucks more you get variety but no more meat. And I suspect the same would apply to the triple-meat platter, which is of course more expensive still.

So unless you really want two different meats, get the single-meat platter. You'll waddle out the same regardless of which you get.
