Well it's tuff for me to write a bad post about a local establishment. But got to get the word out to the hounds...because thats we we do.

Stoped by Wo's BBQ on Rt' 1 Verona Island few days ago. Ordered a pulled chix and pulled pork sandwiche baskets for dinner.

First inpresstion was the meat of both was white.....when I think of a pulled any thing sandwich I think of a nice smokey pink meat cooked with a sweet rub an slathered with some kind of sauce. Well the meat of both was white...not dry but had no flavor besides the meat it self.

Got one with a Garlic sauce and one with a chipotle sauce. Unfortunatly there really was not enough sauce on ethier to complement the flavorless meat. Bun were good is about all I can say.

Bake beans were the high light of the baskets and you could tase the garlic "Wo's" sauce in the bean and was good. Cole slaw also had a hind of garlic which was ok but the slaw was reallt not creamy enough for my taste. Acctually put the bean on the last of the sandwiches to try and capture some of the garlic BBQ sauce flavor.

Maybe the ribs are better & I hope so.

Any one else tried the place and got a better impression please post back.....want to know if I was just having an off day.....and I do understand BBQ is regional taste and I like mine sweet spicey smoked and sloppy....so maybe Wo's for from and region style....I'd like to know if that the case too.....
