Pollard's Barbecue

Updated map information for Pollard's Barbecue.

Pollard's is little more than a barbecue take-out counter located in a strip mall. Two chairs sit against the wall for folks to wait for their food, and a menu is set on the wall behind the counter.

They make a solid sandwich, however. The meat lacks some smokiness of an A&R sandwich, but with that distinction, the two are virtually identical. Also like A&R, they have warm fried pies available. Being compared to A&R isn't necessarily a bad thing--unfortunately A&R is more convenient to most folks around town, given their multiple locations, and with smokiness and a slightly better pie has an edge in flavor, as well. Still, green is green on the map, and Pollard's is worth a visit if you're in the area.

The sandwich was a little pricey ($4.50 for a regular, in days of $5.00 footlong subs), compared to some other places, but it may just be ahead of the curve on keeping up with a general increase in food prices, and the unavailability of certain economies of scale.

Pollard's has moved locations and is located at 4560 Elvis Presley Blvd. I ate at the new location and it is good. Worth checking out.
