Going 5 Stars on the review after our second visit there.
The 24 Hour Brisket was a generous portion and although a bit dry the house bbq sauce added some moisture back as well as a nice kick to the heat level. The Mrs got the Big Chop and that was delicious, nice smokey flavor to it.
For sides we had the Chicken Creole and Red Beans & Rice , the Mrs sides were the cornbread and spiced apples which were both very delicious. She's a bit picky and the options available weren't ones that she was too excited about....I don't want that to be critical on the menu because they did have some variety in the choices but just not ones that she preferred.
Our second visit the food "nailed it"...I had the Catfish Dinner and the Mrs had the Chicken...both were amazing!
The owner (Mike) made rounds to check on the customers both times we were there and at the second visit he stopped by our table for a few minutes as we had a friend who's a bit of a celebrity with us and the Flying Mango was somewhere around his 507th stop at a TripleD restaurant...so that was pretty cool.
