Reviews for The Meating Place

We went a couple months ago. Super cool space, decent local beer selection, some good drink specials. Not busy at all but very slow service. Our drinks sat in the well dying, didn't hit the table until about 2 minutes before our entrees. Fried pickles pretty good. Mac & cheese was not good at all. Pulled pork dry and sauces were not great either.Tl;Dr- if you're looking for a cool spot to chill with friends for drinks and apps it'd be great. If you're looking for the best full review
This place was not crowded and I believe it was because of the food and service. Food was terrible. Ordered the quarter rack with fried okra and side salad. Ribs were dry, tiny, old tasting. Sauces were not memorable. Okra was raw and tough. My date started feeling ill immediately and I had to run to the bathroom as well. I even asked for some paper napkins and the waitress just looked at me like I was crazy. Asked for the check 4 times before finally getting it. full review
Of the four meals we ordered, the pancakes were best part. Isn't this a BBQ place?! In fact, the pancakes were the only acceptable items. The ribs were categorically the worst I've ever had. Too tough to eat. Dry. Cold. Cold. They actually brought out ice cold ribs. The smoked fried tenders were horrible. About two inches of breading and a 1/8 inch thick piece of chicken. Dried out chicken, at that. Adding to the mess, the breading was burned. The owners need to get into full review
