Arrive early to guarantee a shot at your favorite barbecue menu items–this Indiana town locale is hoppin’! Bub’s personal favorite is the BBQ Brisket.

Beating me to the punch, My husband, Jeremy, chose that as his dinner option (so it comes with two sides) while the kids and I went with the Pulled Pork Sandwich.

The sides are all homemade and wowza–it was a tough choice! The chalkboard menu is full of yummy things. Mexican corn, homemade Potato chips, potato salad, cowboy beans…there’s a lot of options!

Kid #1 loved the Cowboy Beans. A sort of meaty chili full of beans, they had a slight kick that he couldn’t get enough of. I was surprised by how much he enjoyed the side dish.

My husband, Jeremy, and I fought over the Bourbon Fried Apples. Those would be so good on a cold Winter night–but let me tell you, they were absolutely fantastic on a warm Spring night!

But my favorite of all? The potato salad. I’m not usually all that big on potato salad. In fact, I usually skip it! It’s frequently so bland I just bypass it rather than risk disappointment. But Bub’s potato salad had so much flavor (oh the dill!) I ate the leftovers later that evening when no one was around. Sorry guys, it was me.
