Men Wielding Fire Reno

Being a huge bbq nut, I was wondering if anyone has tried this new addition to the Reno food scene. I am directing this especially to the esteemed Mr. Timko, who has tasted my own personal bbq and knows my taste.

  1. Is that actually the name of the place? Where is it? and, most importantly, have you tried it? Inquiring minds need to know as traveling to Reno in next week or so.

    1. Hi, Andy. MWF is in the corner location previously used by La Famiglia, at 180 E. First St., at Lake Street.

      We haven't tried it yet, and may not for a while, since we thought their food from their trucks was just OK, not great. If we were downtown, we'd probably go to Pho 777 instead, or perhaps try Pho Country on Virginia, which Steve liked.

      For BBQ, we'll probably give the new Famous Dave's a try, once they open.

      1. I've been meaning to go. I might get there next week.

        1. Thanks for the reminder on that one. We go buy it when heading to the Santa Fe Hotel for tapas. Haven't been there yet. Here's the link:

          1. Hmm. Just looked at their online menu. As soon as I read "smothered" in BBQ sauce for the pulled pork they lost my vote. I'll wait for someone else to try it. Grilling is one of Bob's and my specialities so it tends not to be something we eat out for.
