reveilles and I went to Bub's Bar-BQ in Sunderland yesterday. The restaurant is located right on Route 116 and I have driven past it for years and have always want to stop, but never got around to it until yesterday.

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside. One of the more noticeable features is the red-and-white checkerboard-patterned tent that covers a set of picnic tables. It was cold and rainy yesterday, so we ate inside. When you walk in, you place your order at the register and are given a paper plate to get sides from their unlimited hot and cold bar. Then you find a table and when your food is ready, they call your name out and you have to get up to get it. Once you are done eating, you have to bus your table.

A restaurant with this style of service could feel like a cafeteria. However, Bub's feels very down to earth. The cooks and cashiers were friendly. There was a jukebox in the corner didn't charge money and had music that ranged from The Beatles to Ruben Studdard to Elvis Presley to Peter, Paul, and Mary. The interior decorations were eclectic: lots of images of pigs and even a stuffed alligator. They did a good job of making their customers feel comfortable.

This comfort was definitely necessary since the food at Bub's was messy. I ordered New Orleans style shrimp which came with heads and tails and needed to be cleaned at the table. reveilles ordered a beef brisket sandwich that was dripping with their homemade Bar-BQ sauce. We were both very grateful for the rolls of paper towels that were placed on the tables instead of napkins. Both meals were excellent having enough herbs and spices to taste good but not so much that our mouths were burning (of course, they had a large variety of hot sauces on hand if you wanted to add more spice to your food). As for the hot and cold bar, we were both really impressed with their orange glazed sweet potatoes. The citrus of the orange really worked well with the inherent sweetness of the sweet potatoes. They also had hickory smoked potatoes, something neither of us had eaten before. Neither of us was fond of their cole slaw, personally, I found it too sweet. reveilles really enjoyed their cottage cheese mixed with chives saying it was a combination she had never had before.

The total cost for our meals including a beer for me and a Mike's Hard Lemonade for reveilles was $27, not including tip. I wish I had gone here sooner since we both want to go back again.

True, but that was probably because of their lack of hillel meat more than anything else. :)

well..there are different spellings
but hillel might get people confused with whatever hillel in hillel house means or with hilaal which i think is crescent(moon)

:-D

I think I'm getting older at the same rate as you, one day older every 24 hours.

As for more forgetful, I guess some of reveilles' forgetfulness must be rubbing off on me.

I think I had proof, but I forgot where I put it. :)

Possibly, but alas, that does not seem to be the case. There doesn't seem to be physics rule stating the conservation of forgetfulness.
