      1. Finally made it Milt’s and it was well worth the wait! The meal was excellent – We arrived just after a private party and were pleasantly surprised at how quickly they shifted from the Bar Mitzvah party to a functioning restaurant. The service was excellent. I had the smoked brisket chili, chicken tenders, the Milt Burger and split a slab of ribs – here is the run down:

        Smoked Brisket Chili - This was excellent – the brisket was nice and shredded with the right amount of heat and beans – only thing that would have made better would have been some bread to scoop out the little drips on the bottom of the bowl.

        Chicken Tenders – These were good but the other things I had were better – these would have been better if they had not been overcooked.

        Milt Burger – I have to say this was the best burger I have had at a restaurant – the combination of the fried onions, chili, and beef bacon with bbq aioli was amazing! It burger cam with a side of fries which I had replaced with house made sweet potato fries that were superb especially when dipped into their apple catsup – this was the highlight of the meal.

        Slab of Beef Ribs – cooked to perfection – the meat nice and tender and easily pulled off the bones. The rub was not overpowering – the ribs were served with a trio of sauces on the side – a house sauce that was tomato based with a nice touch of heat, a Carolina mustard based sauce that was nice and tangy and a KC sauce nice and sweet. The ribs were a close to second to the Milt Burger/

        There was a special that I dud not get that looked great – a shaved steak sandwich with a horseradish sauce that looked amazing -
