On Sunday we had lunch at Urban BBQ and it was awesome! This is a very small chain (only three restaurants) in the Silver Spring/Rockville area. The creators/owners also have another restaurant in the area, urban burger, which is also very good! I was very impressed with the BBQ today! It was also nice to help out a local restaurant that is serving such good food . I have to say that it is one of the best restaurants in this area for some real good American comfort foods. (I took these pictures with my iphone, which is not very adept at close-ups, sorry!)
I had the Texas Steakhouse Salad: Fresh iceberg, romaine, chopped brisket, crispy potatoes, bleu cheese crumbles, bacon and diced tomato. I can’t see a way this would not be good but it was even better than I expected. The meat was really tender, juicy, and had a great smokey flavor. Also, it was nicely coated in BBQ sauce which worked well with the sharpness of the bleu cheese. The warm meat and potatoes on top of the cold lettuce and tomatoes also provided a nice contrast. It may look small, but it was more than enough and very filling. All in all, I would definitely recommend this and have it again.
Greg had the beef brisket sandwich, which was basic but complemented nicely by the the BBQ sauces and hot sauces available from the condiment counter.
We also got an order of the chili cheese fries: House-cut fries smothered in Redneck Fondue. What is redneck fondue? It’s a three cheese dip blended with their Two Step Chili and it’s so good (to eat, not for you) that you must give it a try and I would recommend doing this over french fries. I mean, how can you go wrong!
