I had heard lots of advertisements for this new chain which now has locations from Lakeland to Cross City. The Chiefland restaurant is the one I tried. It's located in a newly remodeled shopping strip on the south end of town. Just that fact that it's new would seem to give it an advantage in a town where every other restaurant is showing it's age.
misspelled menu at the counter on the way in, then find a seat and wait for your meal. I ordered the pulled pork which came with two sides and garlic bread.
I could handle all this plastic cowboy kitsch if the food was up to par. It was not. The meat was a little dry and basically flavorless. There was no hint of smoke that I could find. Fortunately there are 6-7 different sauces on each table that
you can try and they saved the day. With interesting names like "Ol' Yeller" and "Tire Lube" you've gotta try 'em, and most are really good. The sweet potato fries I got as a side were excellent. Other than that, the food was disappointing as well.
Not what I'd hoped for, but I would try one of the other locations just to see if they can pull it off any better than this place.
