OK, let me get Russell’s negatives out of the way: I don’t like their fries (kind of thin and plain), I’m so-so on their barbecue sauce (very tasty but kind of thin) and their burgers are average at best. Fortunately, I realize that I am abnormal, because everyone else I know who’s gone there loves Russell’s and their barbecue sandwiches—which are truly very good, sauce and all. (In retrospect, ordering anything non-barbecue on the menu borders on sacrilegious). Along with ample parking and ample seating, Russell’s gets pluses for serving beer as well as for serving breaded mac and cheese “nuggets” as a side order which tastes, for lack of a better word, awesome. I am hard-pressed to think of a better barbecue joint in the area—much less one with the type of history and following that Russell’s has.
