Now, the big question here is, can a good thing duplicate itself? In this case, yes. The decor is more modern (yet still countrified), the feeling a tad bit more uptown, and the newness has yet to wear off, but the food was just as good as that of it's older sibling.
The restaurant sits at 650 Henderson Drive in Cartersville. The West End Commons Shopping Center has scored a coup, hosting Fox's Den Pizza, Hearth and Harvest, and Barbecue Street restaurants. With those three, the shopping center has something for everyone.
On this visit to Barbecue Street, I ordered the Pork Plate, with pork, fries, coleslaw, beans and Texas toast. Tea to drink, of course, and fried pickles as an appetizer. By the way, around here, if it can hold batter, it can be fried. You really should try the fried pickles. My daughter talked me into them, and I am glad she did.
The only thing I would change with my meal would be the fries. I like mine a bit crispy and theirs are not. I usually order baked potato, and will again next time. As in Kennesaw, the restaurant offers a variety of sauces, and I had my usual mix.
The service was excellent, the food at or above the bar set by Kennesaw, and the setting was very nice.
We will return.
