We are not foodies, per se, but we like to mix in family owned non-chain restaurants when we can. We wanted to get some good brisket, and Delauder's had good reviews so we went to check it out. We pulled up to an unimpressive shack behind some shops, which I was happy about, even if the kids weren't. We walked in and there were maybe 8 tables, one of which was available. We didn't see brisket on the menu, so we asked about it. They said they only have it on Saturdays. I actually thought about leaving because while my wife loves all kinds of pork and my daughter loves ribs, I do not normally think of myself as a lover of pulled pork sandwiches. In the end we decided to stay. My wife and I ordered pulled pork sandwiches. My son ordered a two meat plate. My daughter ordered ribs. It took kind of a long time for the food to arrive, like maybe even twenty plus minutes. When the food arrived, it was a LOT of food for the money. Some restaurants substitute quantity for quality, so I was a bit skeptical. I put just a little of the sauce on the sandwich and took my first bite. I kind of expected a bland sandwich with maybe hard chunks of pork, but the first bite changed everything. It was really, really good. It was tender and smokey and just perfect. My wife and kids started eating their food and said it was the best they had ever had. My daughter had fried mac and cheese as a side dish. I figured it would be run of the mill restaurant mac and cheese, but again I was surprised. It had a unique tangy taste with a little bit of bite at the end. It was delicious. My son is on a health kick and watched what he ate and controlled his portions pretty carefully on our week long trip... except on this day at this restaurant, because he loved everything he had. He was stuffed when he left. I admit, I root for small family owned restaurants, but Delauders lived up to the good reviews.
