Out Christmas shopping, I stopped at the Mr Barbecue in the food court. I hadn't eaten at one in ages.
I ordered a small BBQ plate, which came with hushpuppies (two!) and two sides. The sides are in a steam table and didn't look too great. I had boiled potatoes and deep-fried vegatable sticks, which I had had a long time ago and they were pretty good then.
The barbecue was not as bad as it could be. It had a little spicy kick and some body to it. The sides were bleah. The hushpuppies were solid. The potatoes were edible. The veggie sticks were not as good as I remembered.
Next time, I'll hit one of the better, non-BBQ, places at the food court.
Update: The Mr Barbecue has disappeared from Northgate Mall in Durham.
