It is called City BBQ. I am not doing a full Tasteem.io post on it because it has actually grown into a pretty large chain. In my opinion, it is some of the best BBQ North of the traditional BBQ Belt in the Southern US.
The food is always on point and insanely good. We have a handful of BBQ joints near where I live up in Michigan and none of them even come close to City BBQ.
The Popeye's sandwich caught on like wildfire and people have been clamoring to get it ever since. It has seriously been complete chaos! Drive through lines with a multiple hour wait time, stabbings, assaults, thefts, you name it, this chicken sandwich fad has brought out the worst in many Americans.
I had seen an article shortly before our trip to Ohio that City BBQ had come out with their own chicken sandwich to enter the competition. It was a really hard decision for me when it was finally decided we were going to eat lunch at City BBQ on Saturday.
Not living in the area, it is a rare treat that I get to have their BBQ. Why would I forgo that just to try some chicken sandwich. On top of that, we don't have a Popeye's near us so I have never tried their sandwich. Additionally, we don't have a Chick-fil-A near us either, so would I really have anything to compare it to?
It was the fact that City BBQ said they were only going to carry the sandwich for a limited time that tipped the scales in favor of me trying it.
@mrsbozz got the smoked turkey salad you see above and I got this:
While the sandwich was good, it probably isn't something I would ever get again. First of all it feel completely apart when I tried to eat it. Instead of using one flattened breast, it is made up of multiple breaded chicken tenders that fell about the place when I picked it up.
The homemade pickles were awesome and the white bbq sauce had a horseradish kick that I really liked, but there was far to little of the sauce for the amount of chicken that was on the sandwich. The bun was toasted and buttery and had a sweet flavor that worked well with the sandwich overall.
I wasn't disappointed, but for me, this really fell short of the expectations I had. We did get a side of hush puppies to go with our meal(s) and those were fantastic. In hindsight I should have gotten a side dish of the pulled pork to go with the sandwich. I have never been disappointed by their pulled pork.
I still hope to try the Popeye's sandwich some day...
It was pointed out to me on my post(linked above) yesterday that there are some people downvoting posts because they are using @steembasicincome. I think this is really ridiculous. The whole premise of SBI is to help other people out by gifting them shares of the service. Yes in return you also get a share, but how is it bad to help people get awarded more for their posts?
I have a feeling I will probably get downvoted for this post as well. If it was poor quality or one sentence maybe I could accept that. I don't feel like close to 1000 words is poor quality though. I put a lot of care and attention into my posts. To treat them with the same disdain you do a crap post that has been artificially inflated by a bid bot is pretty sad.
If this is the way #newsteem is going to be then that is a pretty sad day for the blockchain. For the most part my posts really don't make that much in rewards. Not compared to a lot of other people with similar reputation and stake as me.
It is because of services like SBI that people are able to keep going through the ups and downs of the market because they know that the investment they made will at least help them a little bit.
The truth is, I can't stop anyone from downvoting this, but if you are going to do so, at least leave a comment and give some clarification or justification for your actions. What do you personally have against SBI that is so upsetting? Is it just jealousy that others have more shares than you? Do you have a legitimate reason for downvoting the posts?
I appreciate those that gave me a boost yesterday to offset the downvote.
It's going to be a hard road for a lot of people if this kind of behavior continues though.
The chicken sandwich from City BBQ is good but not worth the hype in my opinion. The recent downvoting of all content that has received a @steembasicincome vote is going to put a severe hurt on legitimate posters who may or may not even know they have SBI shares in their name.
