Reviews for Cole's Bar-B-Q

My husband and I love BBQ and are always on the hunt for a new spot. I've driven past Cole's for many many years, this time we decided to stop and try it. Worst decision ever. I understand things are weird in this age of the Covid so I'm sympathetic to the plight of the restaurant staff. They were lovely. (except cleaning the tables..).

One star for me and my wife, i had the tri tip sandwich, i think there was tri tip in there, mostly fat and not very testy for 14.49 it was a 7.99 sandwich, my wife had chicken with potato salad, the chicken was cooked, will it was cooked, the BBQ souse was good, chicken and potato salad 12.49, it was a 6.99 plate, its not the price i'm complaining about its the quality, maybe it was just a bad day for the cook.

This place was pretty good. I ordered chill fries. After receiving my order, I was not happy. Typically would not bothered to complain. Our server ~Vanessa~ provide good customer service. She understood. Asked, if I would like something else to go. Ordered the cheese hamburger-she gave me some fries. Burger was tasty. Thanks Vanessa!
