Gosh since we got back early Tuesday morning from Vegas, I have been WORN OUT! Tuesday waking up was a given, I thought I might make it to Trekking class, but no way! I felt like I was in a daze most of the morning, but thought I might catch at Kickboxing class that night...but nope! Decided to be lazy. Wednesday morning I would be fine I thought. Well my alarm went off at 6:30am for my track workout and I thought I might 'just close my eyes', well that lasted until 7:45. I missed my track workout that I love to go to. So I rushed in my slow motioness and made it to 9am kickboxing, but barely could do much there, I was just so darn sleepy. I am taking Claritin, but it takes a while to kick in. Everything is blooming and its doing everything to mess with my allergies I guess. I did make it at my normal time for Bootcamp this morning, but still felt a little sluggish. I need to catch up so I can be my normal 'full' of energy self! We barely slept in Vegas, and surely I am caught up..no??...
We are headed to Las Vegas tomorrow morning early til Monday. We will be joining friends including Winter and Sabrina who are getting married as well as celebrating Winter's 30th! Can't wait. Hopefully I can catch up posting after :)
We went to Central BBQ on Summer Avenue on October 2, 2009. We went to celebrate Randy's birthday and sat outside on the patio.
Brett's Review: Central on Summer was delicious as usual. I got the sausage and cheese plate for the table and except for the sausage coming out lukewarm it was pretty good. My bbq sandwich was delicious as usual. I love the new big screen TV's they added earlier this year. Since it was kinda crowded inside, we sat outside on the front patio and had a very pleasant lunch. Central on Summer gets a 4 out of 5 for me.
Courtney's Review: I have always been a fan of Central bbq and I always order the pork sandwich. This time I decided to try something different and ordered the smoked
turkey sandwich. So good! They slice the turkey really thin so its easy to eat and it has such a great smoked flavor. I topped it with their mild BBQ sauce and it was delicious. I'll definitely order that again.
Kembree's Review: Gosh, I don't know what it is..I just don't see what is so special about Central BBQ...we
decided to do this 2nd location so we could get a better experience and I am sorry Central, I just didn't. The customer service when ordering was okay, I asked a question and got a finger point. I got the sandwich and it was not as hot in temperature as I would have wanted. It was average, just plain average. The mac and cheese was gross and the fries were plain. The sausage and cheese were ok..the presentation was nice. I mean I loved sitting outside and the weather was gorgeous. As Brett mentioned they had TV's inside, maybe it would be fun to watch a game here..
The best part was celebrating Randy's birthday and the Muddy's cupcakes that Diane brought for Randy's birthday celebration. Central always wins the reader's polls in the CA and the Flyer, but I think these people have never tried anything else, which is sad. Central gets a 3.5 out of 5 from me.
Tony's Review: I didn't care for the ribs at the other Central location, too greasy for me. All we hear about is how good this place is. Giving it a second try, the experience was alright. The
food is average and the service is okay. The sandwich was dry, but the sauce was pretty good. There are so many other spots in Memphis to check out. I give it a 3 out of 5.
Diane's Review: Central on Summer was not a real standout. I will just say average and give it a 3 out of 5. One of the things I didn't like was the inside. It was dark and certainly not cheerful. Since we dined outside, it was more pleasant.
Randy's Review: More outstanding than the actual bbq was my birthday celebration. It was celebrated al fresco at Central's suburban location. Nothing to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. I give the sandwich a 3 out of 5.
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
