I’m so glad the Town Hall barbecue line is back! I first discovered the BBQ line last year and have had more fried chicken sandwiches than I can count. Although not as good as Bake Sale Betty’s, the sandwich ties me over since paying $5 for toll to cross the bridge makes the meal one expensive sandwich.

The scene:

The BBQ line is a row of tables and a huge grill set up behind Town Hall. Items on the menu include the popular fried chicken sandwich, pulled pork sandwiches, ribs and jambalaya. They even have a chocolaty dessert and home made chips. The only downside is that there’s no inside seating allowed. There’s a row of decorative rocks that you can picnic at, but it’s ideal for eating ribs or a messy sandwich.

The food:

Fried Chicken Sandwich – This sandwich is very similar to the one at Bake Sale Betty’s – fried chicken breast, crusty bread and cole slaw. The differences are in the cole slaw. It’s tart from the vinaigrette and spicy from the jalapeños. I went with a few co-workers and we sat on the rocks by the BBQ stand. I’m a slow eater, so I finished half my sandwich when everyone was ready to leave. I ended up going back to my desk and finishing the other half. Ugh, what a fatty I am!

    Dammit! One of my friends sent me a link saying something about free McDonald’s fries on Fridays..with any purchase or something like that. I was so busy at work, I didn’t look at it closely or even think to send it to you for The Culture Bite, but will try to remember to do so tomorrow!!
