Based on a good word from commenter Phillip a couple weeks ago, I decided to try Big T's on Garners Ferry tonight. Great food!
Petunia, with five teeth in her whole head, loved the pulled pork, the green beans, and the corn-bread... no paternity test required for that girl! She also enjoyed the banana pudding. (We have a rule in the Bridges household: "If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding.")
This place is inexpensive. It's a styrofoam-and-plastic dining experience, and it's in a strip mall, but somehow all that added to the ambience. I will likely never try the pig's feet dinner on the menu, but the collard greens were outstanding and the tailgating specials seemed pretty reasonable.
There's a letter from Congressman Joe Wilson on the wall, next to a newspaper clipping his office sent. Now that's constituent service. The clipping describes Big T's participation in Governor Sanford's inaugural barbecue, which, as I understand, was BYOP.
The picture, by the way, is not of Big T's. But it's close enough.
