As I was driving down the road, looking for lunch, Old Etowah Smokehouse appeared. I of course made a left turn and parked. This restaurant seems to have been around for quite some time. It prides itself on its barbeque technique.
Unfortunately, I found the food and service to be not quite what I would expect from a restaurant with these ambitions. My collard greens were heavy with vinegar but missing the taste of pork. The slaw was fine. I never received any sauce for my pork. It was moist enough not to need it. But I think that a restaurant with a map of Carolina BBQ sauces should be a little more careful about providing sauce with their plates. My hush puppies arrived with my last bite of meat so I didn’t have a chance to try them.
