Pappy's Smokehouse

To kick of my birthday weekend, and to make up for not getting to follow through last year when it was way too cold, I went to Pappy's on my day off. I was afraid to make dinner plans there in case they ran out of food, so I was waiting for the right time to go for lunch.

Since it was the middle of a work day, I had no trouble finding a parking spot at a meeting nearby, but it turns out there is a fairly large parking lot behind the building!

When I walked in, the line was not quite to the door, but long enough so that it gave me time to figure out what I wanted to eat, and post on Facebook where I was eating. I probably only waited 10-15 minutes so that was not bad at all. I'm sure the line is much longer on the weekends though!

I loved that it was extremely organized and they had someone assign you a seat when you got close to the front. Then when your meal is ready, they'll call out your name and find you.

I wish I could have tried one of everything, but I did go with the two meat platter (brisket and turkey) just so I could try a couple of things at once. (Really, one meat would have been enough!) The platter comes with two sides and they were plenty filling since I went with baked beans and potato salad. The potato salad was a little too tart for me so I almost finished the beans, but I got full quickly.

I really hope to get the chance to go back and try their ribs, but I just hope it's not my last time! Maybe a birthday lunch tradition?
