I am not sure how to describe Mudsocks Grill and what their target market is. The interior is pretty nice (think Charleston’s) and their menu has anything from salads, pastas, steaks, sandwiches and a few other entrees. There was also a list of daily specials. A quick look at them menu and some parts of it seemed pretty pricey with $12.00 for chicken fingers? Salads were mostly $10 and up as well.
What I Ate: Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwich with Mac and Cheese; $10.00.
A relative bargain compared to other items on the menu. The sandwich came with lettuce tomato, pepperjack cheese, mustard and…onion strings. This is the last time that I am going to get onion strings on a sandwich as they get soggy and they really don’t add anything, except fat and calories.
The BBQ was actually pretty decent. Knowing that it is not a BBQ joint, I am curious about how they made it. Either way, I would give the actually meat a 5-6/10. It wasn’t anything better than what most people pass off as BBQ around here. The sauce was a little sweet for my liking, but it wasn’t bad nor…awesome!
The server said that I should try the mac and cheese. Rotini-esque noodles and they tried to pass this off as a gourmet mac. The cheese was so thick that it was the food equivalent of soft mud. It tasted just fine, but there was a consistency issue there and I didn’t end up finishing. It is pretty rare that I don’t finish mac and cheese.
Would I Buy It Again? Maybe. This sandwich really hit the spot, but I can’t say that it was a great sandwich. I had a taste for BBQ and I got my fix.
I enjoyed Mudsocks efforts to class up casual food, but while they offer some scratch made dishes, they also offer the southwest egg rolls that every bar has now and a few other items that would be better off the menu. We had spinach artichoke dip, the aforementioned Southwest Egg rolls and wings for apps and I thought they were all pretty pedestrian.
This is one of those reviews where I didn’t dislike anything that I had, but I surely didn’t love it. The hunger quest continues…
