TJ's Hickory Honey Hams
I just ate at TJ's Hickory Honey Hams in the old Farmer's Market on Burnet Road.
I had the pulled pork sub. excellent. the bread is baked fresh from phoenicia. the pork was tender as hell. I got mine with provolone, grilled mushrooms and their bbq and horseradish sauces. its a pretty big sandwich too. I ordered the side of coleslaw, it was great. they really wanted me to taste their baked beans, so they threw that in for free. they were awesome and had (of course) bacon in them.
they have a bunch of sandwiches and their prices are very reasonable. my whole bill with a drink was $8.65 after tax. they are only open till 6 during the week and till 5 on Saturdays. Also, they have delivery.
Damn fine pig there.
Went and had a lovely conversation with the owner, Jamie. She said she's not sure where the development is going, but that she'll stay as long as she can (and will relocate again if she has to).
Called my order in and, since I'd never been, asked Jay to make me what he felt was the best. He made me a pulled pork with mushrooms and a little bit of both the bbq and horseraddish sauce. Footlong toasted sub (love em toasted!) came piled high with juicy pulled pork and grilled mushrooms. Flavors worked really well together, cheese was all metly and the bun was toasted just right. Gotta say, it was a tasty sub and a wonderful Flavorful option in the land of the bland. Next, I'm going to try the Jamie - pork, two kinds of cheese, cold toppings plus lots of cucumber...there goes the diet...
I think this is the place that used to be in the 26 Doors shopping center, and if it is, I really like their subs. Unfortunately, I saw on the Statesman website just now that the owner of the property is putting it back on the market rather than renting the rest of it out. The article says that TJ's lease ends April 30 and may not be renewed. I'd better hurry up and go now!
