Wished Lindsey's BBQ Would Get Their Groove Back...

Gee, I hate to say bad things about past loves...but, I went to Lindsey's BBQ the other day for lunch and I was sooooo disappointed. Had the pork BBQ combo and gosh, it was sort of tasteless. Was one of those...looked really good but, no flavor. My side of beans tasted a bit bland, as well. Maybe I was suppose to pour the BBQ sauce sitting on the table all over my sandwich to spruce it up, but I didn't. Anyway, my lunch companion had the turkey and dressing plate with mixed greens, steamed cabbage, cornbread, and hushpuppy. I sampled the dressing and did not catch any trace of sage...what the heck was that all about?? Dressing without sage overload is an unforgivable sin where I come from. Maybe my taste buds were out to lunch that day, or I was having a bad one, or they were having a bad one, but I really wish this place would get their BBQ and soul food groove back. Total bill with drinks was $14.15 so I shouldn't complain too much. The greens were good...

Yamato Japanese Steakhouse in Jacksonville

Don't know why this place is hardly occupied when we visit, but we love it and visit often!! So, being lone diners, we often receive extra special attention, even though we do have a different server each time. I tend to get the same thing every visit, like the Tempura Shrimp Bento Box. It has huge crispy Panko fried shrimp which are soooooo tasty. Never soggy, oily, or spongy. The Bento comes with choice of soup (love the miso), salad with choice of dressing (nicely generous with the ginger dressing, too), fried rice, crispy egg roll, and four little sushi pieces! Whatta meal for under $10...I always bring leftovers home for late night snacking. Check out these pics...

You probably should stop in (just off Hwy 67/167), if ever in the Jacksonville area...I hear they even have Karaoke. Very pleasant place to eat (grill and bar areas pictured below)...they really should spruce up that fish tank in the front entry way, though.
