Reviews for Cole's Bar-B-Q

Look at this $10 hotdog. It's just two halves of a regular sized hotdog packed into a 8 inch hoagie bun. It's like eating a loaf of bread with a little bit of meat in it. No toppings or anything. How are you not embarrassed to serve this? It's emblematic of Cole's BBQ: overpriced and mediocre food.

Super long wait for food, and it was chilly. Should have called in order, but just saw it in passing. Tri-tip and potato salad were really good. Garlic bread was soft and mushy, maybe because it was wrapped in foil for the 4 min drive back to our vacation rental? Wish we had a toaster oven.Hot dog wasn't a good order from here. It was just one thin frankfurter, cut in half and on a humongous sandwich roll. No condiments were given for it, outside of bbq sauce.Tri-tip was full review
Unfortunately, with to go orders, maybe it was the time we went(last customer), but our order was incomplete and we were let very unsatisfied especially for the price we paid. The burgers were lacking in the flavor we had once love before there and the buns were extremely soggy. Both burgers were pink in the middle although we requested them to be both well done. Mine was missing grilled onions and my wrap had alot of grease in it, plus a thumb gouge in my burger pattie.I full review
