    Well, I'm sort of in your boat: all I've had from there in the past is the pulled pork and some side dishes that go with that, but honestly: based on that pulled pork and the sides, I'd have to think that Deni is able to do wonderfully well with the rest of the items, too. I've liked the sides I've had as well, and his sauces are different and very good.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much...you'll just get yourself into a tizzy over nothing. After all, it's a Super Bowl party; most people are used to eating crap at them, and to be offered something several steps better than that will be very welcome.

      Whoa! Some of best food we eat all year is at Super Bowl parties! This is when many BBQ kings and queens 9and food-lovers alike) go all out, not only with the BBQ but with chilis, pizzas, bountiful appetizers, sides, and salads that we save for that date alone. Much of it is even what could be called "fancy." I've definitely never had crap at a Super Bowl party, unless it was just chips and dip, but everyone I know takes it pretty seriously.
      I, too, wouldn't worry whether a huge BBQ spread from a reputable place is going to satisfy your guests, as it's bound to be pretty good. And it saves you a lot of trouble.

        Huh. Boy, we seem to have some pretty different Super Bowl party experiences...normally I expect a spread of some chips and dip, some crappy buffalo wings, some generic BBQ Gordon Food Services (or something like it) hamburgers and/or chicken breasts with a side of Open Pit or Kraft BBQ sauce, some iceberg lettuce salad, etc. Nothing of consequence.

        Sounds like I need to hang out with your friends, Amanda! ;)

            Yeah, I guess it says a bit about our friends and family. I love that it's a day all the guys and husbands plan for very seriously food-wise; they do all the work, and good work they do.
            But I won't deny that there's always the requisite pot of meatballs and keg of Bud Lite! :)
            Hey, I've never claimed to be a foodie :)

        i can't get past the pulled pork either because it is so good. but for what it is worth, i tried a rib two years ago at arts, beats, & eat, and from what i remember, it was pretty good.

          I've had the rib tips and jumbo wings from Lazy Bones..Both items were "oh my God..these are good" kinda good. I think your guests will be hounding you with "Where did you get this" questions. Wings are Big and meaty, and the tips are meaty too and fun to eat. your party is gonna be a hit.
