As promised I tried the new "BBQ" restaurant in Lincoln that seems to be the hit of the town ( from hear say ). We were a walk in and were offered a table which was reserved 1 hour later. This place seems popular. When I sat down and looked at the menu, EVERY INSTINCT told me to walk out. For starters you smell no smoke even in the building. Their claim to fame seems to be ribs and maybe pulled pork. No brisket; not even bbq chicken on offer. I asked about a steak and after checking with the kitchen the waitress told me I could have a rump steak. Now IMHO rump steak is only good for chicken frying. I know it is popular here; I just don't know why. Grilled cardboard would be as good. The wife ordered 1/2 rack of ribs. I told her I was going to get a grilled steak and she was going to get steamed ribs with cheap bbq sauce on them. They have on their menu "Polish Keilbasa ( Hot Links ) our own recipe" Well ya gotta give that a try right? WRONG!! What I got was a cheap Lincolnshire sausage that was fried. The wife's ribs and my steak came as I suspected. NONE of that food had even been shown a picture of a smoker. They advertise themselves as "An American Smokehouse". I spent £40+ and brought it home for the dogs. Am now eating cold KFC, and I don't care much for KFC. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Tell your friends DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! The VERY sad thing is that this place seems popular. Is a small place but ALL the tables were reserved! The U.K. public thinks this is good food. Those ribs were dire. I kid you not, NO seasoning; just steamed and cheap catering bbq sauce poured over. Young dog is stupid and eats anything but the old dog walked away!! We have our work cut out folks. British public thinks this nasty stuff is the mutts nuts and I can't get my dog to eat it. To be fair the rump steak was cooked as ordered; but it's rump steak. So there you have my review. Keep Smokin!
