120 E. Forsyth, next to Florida Theatre. But I don't think he's got the funding yet

Oh that spot!? That's a really good location, one more cool addition to the elbow. Hope he can pull the funding together!

That looks delicious.  I'm running on low sleep, so I may have just missed it, but where is the BBQ Shack going to be?

I've been wanting to try Gilbert's. I pass it when I go to Tasty's or T-Rays. How is the barbecue & how does it compare with Jenkins or Bono's?

Is Jenkins still considered good?

Last couple times I went I felt like I was eating a pound of sauce on something some sort of rib simulation.

I haven't been in a year or so. It was hit or miss back then. Sometimes they would be out of something & say "the truck didn't come in" or "he didn't get here early enough to start the fire". The sauce is what I liked, Hot sauce was good too.

Years ago it was really good. I will have to try it again & let you know.

I love Gilbert's. The portion sizes are outrageously huge, but on the plus side, if you get one meal there it'll feed you and all of your extended family for the 10 days following your dining experience.
