Take-Out Thursday: Ribs!

We’ve got some big news this week…we actually ate at a restaurant for the first time since the middle of March. Two restaurants, to be precise, Village Burger in Tucker and The Red Eyed Mule in Marietta. We sat outside at both places and were so excited to be there that we forgot to take food pictures. We ordered inside and they brought us the food outside. Both meals were excellent. We’re still not ready to sit inside and may not be for awhile.

Meanwhile, back at the takeout counter, sometimes you just gotta have ribs. And that’s exactly what we ordered from Williamson Bros. BBQ for a recent pickup. I called on the phone, gave the credit card info and was told ten minutes. After a two-mile drive, I was in the pickup line and told to pull into parking space number 3 (out of 8 full spaces) and they would bring the food out. Twenty minutes later, no food. Finally, I asked where the food was, and it miraculously appeared. You would think they would have this down as they have been doing it for months.

Anyway, did someone mention ribs?

You know you want one, but they are all gone. Go get your own. These are really good. Williamson Bros. has been doing this forever, and they’ve got the cooking process down. I hate using terms like “perfectly prepared, but by golly, they are.

We get some sides to go with.

The fried okra and slaw are just OK. Nothing to gush about. We also get a side salad, which again is nothing special.

We thought we should get some carbs, so we order the BBQ chicken stuffed potato.

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but this thing is huge. We realize we have ordered too much food and put this in the refrigerator for the next day’s lunch. It did pretty good on the reheat. We put a lot of sauce on it to keep it from drying out.

We would have walked up to the square for some BBQ at Hawg and Ale, but they have been closing their takeout early and they currently do not have ribs on their menu. And when you gotta have ribs, nothing else will do.

What We’re Watching

Did we watch Hamilton again?

You betcha! And while we are paying that whopping $7 for Disney Plus this month, we though we would check out some of their teen-centric rom-coms and wound up watching three. We aren’t really the audience for these things, but we watched 10 Things I Hate About You (1999, starring a very young Heath Ledger!), Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004, with an 18-year-old Lindsay Lohan), and Three Men and a Little Lady (1990, with Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and what ever happened to Steve Guttenberg?).

I didn’t even know that there was a sequel to Three Men and a Baby. All of these movies are a good way to kill 90 minutes. And…we are really getting our money’s worth out of that Disney Plus subscription.
