So Eater posted about Hi-Lo's new menu, that new bbq spot that is suppose to open whenever the fuck on 19th. Now I haven't had this food yet so I don't want to shit on them but fuck it, I'm shitting on them. You can peep the menu below. Look I'm about my bbq for reals and I'm not really sweating them for $18/lbs brisket. Franklin's is 16/lb and that's in Austin, so for SF the meat price isn't that bad. My issue is all the other bullshit on this menu. Dog I don't care about smoked almonds, duck wings, mussles, ten dollar fucking potato salads, fucking beets by dre, goddamn warm kale, fucking baby carrots and parsnips?!?! WTF kind of bbq is this dog? I mean I get it, you're trying to fancy it the fuck up for some hee hawing ass cubicle warrior, but come on fool you're doing counter service. I'm not trying to fuck with some Zynga-ass cafeteria lunch special of the fucking month. There are two things worth calling bbq on this list and that's brisket and the ribs. I don't even want to holler at the loin if you aren't fucking with some pulled pork. All this shit is just a big red flag telling me that if you're doing all that shit chances are you're gonna fuck up the main meats.
I'm still probably gonna try this spot but goddamn can't someone just stop giving us bullshit ass bbq in this town. Stop fucking around and smoke some meat proper like already.
