SONNY BRYAN’S – WEST END

19 Mar

UntitledAs long as I have lived here I have heard one thing, when it comes to ‘cue, over and over:

Sonny Bryan’s.  Sonny Bryan’s.  Sonny Bryan’s.

And as long as I have lived here, for some reason, I just never got around to  trying them.   Until now.

They have a nice selection of meats and sides but I saw they had a combo rib/chicken platter and thought that was genius.   Serve it up!

What arrived was some of the smallest chicken wings I had ever seen.   They were showered in a pedestrian sauce that had some decent kick but pretty generic.  I was dumbfounded.  Switching to the ribs I found there to be a lot of meat on them-there bones— although mostly dried-out tasting.   It was like they had been sitting in a hot tray or something for a little while.  The BBQ sauce was nice and tangy, and necessary to keep these ribs hydrated and moving.  Honestly I have had better tasting ribs purchased out front of a local grocery store.

Overall I was kind of at a loss.   Just stopped in my tracks.   Is this another case of ordering the wrong thing again?  Not to be rude or say the food was horrible (it wasn’t) but I just don’t get it.  The reputation of this place is a MONSTER.  What I got was meek.
