M finally decided to come Downtown to eat lunch with me. Since it was a nice sunny day, a stroll for some good street food came to mind. M loves meat, so it just seemed fitting to take him to Re-up BBQ 1 and 2.
Yes, they finally expanded into 2 carts selling different things!
Lets start off with the original cart – Re-Up (Addictive) BBQ AKA Re-Up 1. They sell Pulled Pork Sandwiches ($7) and 3 different sodas.
The pulled pork sandwich has a mound of very very tender pork doused in an amazing smokey BBQ sauce with some coleslaw to add an extra crunch to the sandwich. All of this is housed in a Portuguese style bun. It is very fluffy and works well with the pulled pork.
M just fell in love with it as he walked down the street.
I did come here last year and there are a few changes. The sandwich is much easier to eat, probably since it’s not as packed full of meat as before. The price increased for $1, but it’s probably due to increasing costs of keeping the cart running.
The next stop was Re-up BBQ 2, which is located less than a block away near the large protest stairs of the Art Gallery.
They specialize in Beef Brisket Sandwiches ($9) and they sell the same drinks as Re-Up BBQ 1.
M was surprised by the amount of meat in the sandwich. The make this by grabbing a slab of beef brisket and slicing it up nice and thinly. The coleslaw and bun are all the same as the pulled pork sandwich. The sauce was a little bit different, but I really could not put my finger on what it was. It tasted really really good.
Both of these were super good! If you have the stomach, you could probably eat 2 sandwiches for lunch. hahaha.
Words of Wisdom:
- Bring cash!
- A bit of a wait during lunch hour
- Grab your sandwich with also a Southern Sweet tea!
