Brough Ham Fleetwood (aka The Big ole Sloppy) - This you need to eat with fork and knife and they only have flimsy plastic forks, so be warned.... bring your own. The bun (Village Baking Company) is phenomenal and lends itself to a wonderful dark, crispy toast around the edge. Unfortunately, due to it's delicate nature, there was just too much goodness for it to contain, so I ended up eating the the meats pretty much with my fingers (thus the aka nomenclature) with the bun on the side. Asking for the slaw on the side would make it more manageable. Next time, I'll order the pulled pork by itself as I found the ham to be pretty generic on flavor and got nothing from the bacon relish, but that pulled pork and the bun! mmmmm......
many times. It's good. Don't expect a culinary epiphany - in a conceptual way, the food is very similar to what the rest of Neighborhood Services is serving... honest, tasty food with just a touch more creativity and quirk than you might expect.
Of course, the focus of OSK is different - Nick Badovinus has referred to it as "light industrial". I have no idea what that means, but it somehow seems to fit. Burgers and various other meat sandwiches dominate the menu. If you come with a vegetarian (as I have) they will make a grilled cheese sandwich - I'm told it's quite good. But otherwise, there's not much that doesn't contain meat.
The fries are exactly the same was what they serve at Neighborhood Services - which I think are among the best in the city. They may be slightly better at OSK, in fact - cooked a bit darker, which I prefer.
The burgers are great. The patty is in the style of In-N-Out - roughly 1 cm thick - but with noticeably more beef flavor. Occasionally the cut surface of their buns are griddled to the level of crispness that Maple & Motor achieves (which is probably the only thing I find remarkable about their burgers - sorry Jack). Probably not a candidate for the best burger in the city, but at $3.50 for a cheeseburger, I think these are a reasonably good bargain.
My favorite sandwich has been the Brough Ham Fleetwood, which contains both sliced ham and pulled pork shoulder, plus some slaw, etc. There's also a straight-up pulled pork sandwich (the pork is tossed with some sort of bbq sauce), a 48-hour sous vide cooked brisket sandwich, a sandwich made with house-corned beef, a juicy delicious chicken sandwich... also a crispy taco filled with sloppy joe meat, or (as specials) with green- or red-sauced chili. Everything I've eaten there has been at least good if not delicious. In my experience, the sandwiches on rolls or buns are better than those served on sliced bread, which I find to be a little too oily and under-grilled for my preference. It's not bad... just a slight detraction
A warning of sorts... they are not afraid to use "American" cheese. I don't hate the stuff, but in the wrong context it can ruin a sandwich for me. So be sure to read the sandwich description, and ask for a different cheese if you're not happy with what's on there.
Then there's a bunch of fun, quirky stuff. Bottles of 5 different sauces that you can use to augment your food. Spam makes regular appearances on the menu and in specials. Mini pecan and cherry/cola pies. Gatorade or Tang as fountain drink options. Individually wrapped twinkies. Free (charitable donation for wounded warriors requested) soft serve ice cream. And of course, the standard bizarre decor - also "light industrial", I guess.
What else...? Service is super friendly. And they get slammed during lunch from about 12-1 or 1:30, so plan your arrival accordingly. As far as I know they haven't started serving breakfast yet, but the plan is to extend hours from 7am-7pm.
