April already and I Have not been a very good blogger on this website. Things happen though and there is no sense in beating myself up about it right? I see Anah has not blogged much either. *hint hint Anah hint hint*

 

With that said I have several restaurant reviews to post on the site and I will get back into posting recipes of all kinds. I do think that I will dedicate one day a week to items for kids, be they babies, toddlers ect. Just things they are more likely to enjoy and eat but that are made at home with love by you! Who couldn’t use some kid friendly ideas once in a while right?

 

Be prepared! šŸ™‚

brushfire

When you first walk into the Brushfire BBQ you get a nice warm inviting feeling and beyond that you get hit with some fantastic smells going right to your nose. The Brushfire E 22nd seems to have a little bit of confusion where it points you to ordering or to seating without saying you need to order first. It is a minor thing but if it is your first time it is something to be warned about. You do need to order before you sit. The staff was friendly and helpful the line was not to long so I was helped right away. The menu is easy to read and there is a nice array of choices without being overwhelming.

For my trip to the Brushfire BBQ I decided to get the Shredded Chicken with Brushfire Hot BBQ sauce and one side of Brushfire Seasoned fries and a drink. I was driving so I chose to just have a fountain soda which is self serve and was just as you would expect fountain soda to be. Once I ordered I was given a fun little number sign and took it to place on my table. The booth I sat in had ripped leather on the seats which was a little off putting but the table itself was clean and orderly. On the table there was an array of sauces to choose from, ketchup and an ample supply of napkins. My order came out quickly and here is what I got.

BrushfireMeal

As you can see it was a good size helping served in a nice basket. The bread is said on the menu to be a grilled garlic bread and while it is certainly grilled I did not taste much garlic flavor in it when I ate it alone or with my BBQ. Overall I feel the bread was a little bit to much making the ratio of bread to meat off, but it was not completely off putting. The bread was not enough for me to lift up and eat without spillage due to the generous amount of meat given but they supply a knife and fork to use with your meal which was great thinking!

Now onto the meat, oh the meat while not the most mind blowing I have ever had was moist and there was a nice smoke taste to it. The sauce I chose the Brushfire BBQ hot was bold and had good flavor with kick but not being overwhelming. I love when a spicy flavor has just the right amount of heat to it. Brushfire BBQ has done a great job with this and I found the chicken to be cooked just to my liking. So a big win on the sandwich.

The season fries were at first taste different. There was a little bit of a sweetness, salt and a little bit of something else that I could not personally identify but I found it to be a nice flavorful blend. The fries were cooked nice not soggy and crispy. While I personally likes my fries to be a little bit more crisp overall I was happy with them.

The final thought, a four star experience for me. The meal was good, affordable and the atmosphere was pleasant as well.
