Shuga Hill Catering BBQ Truck in East Bay
[Note: This thread was split from the August 2009 Grocery Outlet thread -- The Chowhound Team]
I was at the Oakland store on Friday afternoon and there was a BBQ truck out front -- Shuga Hill Catering. I hadn't eaten yet so I order a rib plate which was 4 ribs and 2 sides.
The potato salad was pretty good but I made a mistake and order the bean which were canned beans. Should have gotten corn breads. Without the mistake of getting beans, the sides are probably a solid B. Any way, the BBQ was just okay like a C+.
I knew it wasn't smoked on the truck but I thought it could still be okay. I think okay is about it, the ribs were drowning in sauce. Maybe something else knows what to order at Shuga Hill, maybe brisket? .
These guys are usually in Emeryville but I didn't find out where they usually park. No info except they have a light purple truck.
A few weeks ago I had a piece of red velvet cake. It was pretty good. Cream cheese frosting and the cake was moist and not dried out like most.
I asked one of the GO workers who was outside taking a break if it was any good. She was really enthusiastic about the fried chicken and fried fish. She had not tried the bbq.
