Two new BBQ joints in two nights, and two posts to match.
Tonight found me in Fairfield, CA. After a trying day with a critical computer failure I wandered into Best Buy to by a thumb drive in the hope that my computer awakes long enough for me to pull a bunch of data off the local drive. Curses for not backing up regularly and/or saving critical files to the cloud.
What does this have to do with BBQ? Well, I asked the guys at Best Buy for a BBQ recommendation. They both said to go to Kinder's. Bonus points for it being really close to my hotel.
Cut it close by getting there at 7:45 - they close at 8. They didn't have any issue with me ordering that close to closing and eating there.
Got the pulled pork of course. Their standard sando comes with mayo on the top bun. Never had that, but rolled with it. Added coleslaw and baked beans. Plus a beer and it only set me back $14.34.
Not my favorite coleslaw - but I am really picky - still ate most of it. Enjoyed it added to the sandwich. Beans were good and hearty.
They pork was tender and had a nice flavor. The Kinder sauce added a nice touch of flavor without overpowering he meat.
I would come here again for sure. Who knows, maybe I'll head back tomorrow to try the BBQ Beef sandwich.
They actually have three locations - Fairfield, Danville and Pleasanton.
In Fairfield they are at:
1363 Oliver Road, Suite C
Fairfield, CA 94534
They even have an Android and iOS app. Looks like they are on Facebook & Twitter, but no account info is on the menu.
