Memphis bbq.  You can smell it from the parking lot.  Scent of applewood and hickory smoke.  I wasn’t sure what to order so I went with the sampler to try everything.  Chicken was tender and juices were dripping onto the plate as I bite into it.  The dry rub on the skin and the sweet sauce combined very well.

The sampler with pulled pork, sausage, bbq chicken, pork ribs, and brisket.

Pork ribs had a smoky aroma and flavor.  There was a nice crust on them and the inside was juicy and tender.  Delicious.

Beef brisket had a good smoky aroma but the flavor was more subdued than the ribs.  Very tender.  Great with a dab of the sweet bbq sauce.

Pulled pork had light smoky aroma and flavor.  Tender and delicious with a dab of the sweet bbq sauce.

Sausage was juicy and had really good flavor.

Curly fries, corn fritters, and bread.

So much food…  It was about 3 people worth for $40.  There were 2 of us so there was a bunch of leftovers.  🙂  There was great people watching and a view of the bay.  Service was excellent.  I found out from our waitress the pulled pork, ribs, and brisket were smoked in apple wood while the chicken was smoked in hickory.

    I can’t remember the last time I was at the Coronado Ferry Landing! The sampler looks beautiful and bountiful ! Was it expensive?

    Coronado was an awesome weekend staycation for us. 🙂 It was $40 and enough food for 3 so I think it was reasonably priced. I’m gonna eat the leftovers tonight. 🙂
