We ate dinner at Bad Brad’s at least 10 years ago, when we met my Mom and Grandmother at Stillwater for the day. We liked it, but hadn’t been back until today.
We started off with some cheese fries, “dirty”, or with brisket chopped up over them. That was probably the best loaded fries I have had. The fries were thick cut and had amazing flavor (Ian said that they were the same fries used at Eskimo Joe’s). Some I ate straight, some I dipped in BBQ sauce, and some in ranch dressing. YUM. YUM. YUM. We also got cornbread and beans. The cornbread was OK (it was huge piece, and a little dry), and the pinto beans were pretty darn good.
We each got a two-meat special, except me, I got three. We had the following:
Sliced brisket: Tender, but it had an odd aftertaste that I flat didn’t like. After the third piece, the aftertaste was strong and unpleasant enough that I actually spit it out.
Ribs: Pretty good. About an 8 on a scale of 1 to JTs.
Smoked chicken: Good flavor, but on the dry side.
Pork roast: Really, really good.
The green beans were pretty good, as were the baked beans. Raegan got okra and corn on the cob, both of which she liked.
The iced tea was pretty good, and service was decent. When we got there at 1715, the place was almost empty, but it quickly filled up and was very busy. Our check for four, with the two large appetizers, was $79.29, which I don’t think is too bad for all the food we got.
