US 31 BBQ Downtown Muskegon MI

I need some outside opinions on the issue of US 31 BBQ in downtown Muskegon, because I think I may have a genetic defect causing me to love this place, probably due to some prenatal exposure to the sandwiches or something! Downtown Muskegon is a generally downtrodden place, but this place makes me smile! The "BBQ" part is a bit of a misnomer because they only serve sandwiches of various shaved meats topped with their "BBQ" sauce/relish. Eating the sandwich is a terribly messy ordeal, the sauce slopping everywhere and the bun so soggy it falls apart. The fries are standard frozen fare, but I get them anyway. They make shakes and malts from hand-dipped ice cream. If nothing else, it is unique to the area, and worth the trip off of the highway for something other than a fast-food lunch when passing through. Make sure you get extra napkins!
