lazybones smokehouse (detroit) report
it's in roseville, actually.
i was out on the east side early this afternoon, between appointments, with no lunch plans. so i stopped at lazybones smokehouse on groesbeck, just north of i-696.
heard about this place sometime back and actually tried a rib and a pork sandwich at this year's arts, eats, & beats festival in pontiac over labor day weekend. the rib was very good and the sandwich was ok. but it was festival food. i wanted to try the real thing.
i was not disappointed. wow was it good!
i ordered a pulled pork sandwich with slaw and hot sauce (they also offer mild and mustard).
i wait my turn - there were six other people waiting (it's carry out only) and half a dozen or so eating outside. lady hands me a bag with a full size meal go-box in it. it's pretty heavy for a sandwich.
i get to the car and there is a monster size onion roll (easily twice the size of a regular hamburger bun) filled with pulled pork. chunks of pulled pork. some pieces with crispy & crusty ends. good smoke ring. moist and melt in your mouth tender. subtle applewood smoke. fantastic. spicy sauce was a little tame for my taste, though. and they threw in about 10 ranch fries (fried potato wedges - i could only eat two). i am full. all for $6! mega value deal.
they have nine sandwiches (pork, chicken, brisket, trio-combo, burnt ends, rib, cajun sausage, etc - all $6), eight platers (rib tips, burnt ends, cajun sausage, chicken, smoked wings, beef, shoulder, st louis ribs - $8.25), 2 to 6 piece broasted chicken meals ($5-$9), four pizzas - all with a smoked meat - $7/$14, sides, combos, and buld bbq (half and full punds of meat ($5/$10) and half and full racks of ribs ($9/$18).
