We were looking for lunch yesterday in Guthrie will little luck. Two places out of business, one closed at 1400. We hit Stables in spite of some bad reviews.
Should have listened to those.
Turns out we’ve been there at least once before. Don’t remember what I thought of that visit. The menu talked about BBQ (good) and an option to have it “smokehouse style”. I asked our server what that was, but she didn’t know. Hmmm…
We started with tea and thin onion rings, both excellent. I really like the rings.
I got a two-meat BBQ, with brisket and ribs. The brisket was almost corned, way salty and no smoke flavor, not particularly tender. The ribs were OK. I didn’t finish either. The slaw was vinegar-based. The pintos were ok. I never got the o-rings side I ordered. Erin got a decent bacon cheeseburger. Raegan had a good pulled-pork sandwich. Ian had a decent chicken fried steak with very good gravy and good mashers.
His CFS had a piece of wax paper cooked right in. We showed it to the manager, who showed no interest.
Our check was $65.26. I think the CFS should have been comp’d. It was an expensive meal that didn’t have the quality to justify the cost.
We will not be back.
