  1. Seems like there were too many flavors going on. 🙁 Too bad. I remember when that corner was Sherman’s Shack.

      Hi CC – That Reader article reminded me that we also went their when it was Sonny’s BBQ (didn’t like that either). I wanted to like it here since they make everything from scratch… sigh. Too bad.

  2. the name SOUNDS good maybe they still need more time to figure it out! anyway, i recognized the building because it was SQUE BBQ when I visited last year! ( they left the finger and parking text but changed the other words hehe!

      Hi Lynn! I don’t think I visited when it was SQUE BBQ – but I do remember when it was Sonny’s BBQ. This location has changed so many times over the years! I do feel a little fooled by the name when nothing we ordered was particularly garlicky, either. Ah well. Maybe they do need more time to figure it out.

    Wow. Way too many flavors, just from reading the menu (I’d order a /normal/ and want the garlic spread and BBQ sauce on the side at least, to be able to taste the burger and bun first). Too many ingredients to keep track of in the kitchen-beer drinkers may not notice the skewing of their flavor buds, but I would. Sad…I saw it and wanted to stop there for a meal, maybe now for a side only.

    Yeah. I thought the food here was pretty much a hot mess…….over the top, clashing flavors. The only “garlic” I got was granulated garlic on the fries……that’s very telling.
