    Default Captain's BBQ

    For the area, this is so-so BBQ. Not great, not terrible, just adequate. For true BBQ you'll need to travel away from East Central Florida. But other than Sonny's or Woody's, this is all we've got.

    We ordered 2 combo platters. Choosing ribs, sausage, pulled pork, and brisket as our meat choices. Coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, beans, and cornbread were added for authenticity.

    Sauce should be an afterthought, and not necessary. I found the majority of the meat lacking in flavor without adding run-of-the mill sauces. The rub was bland and not properly coated. Leading me to believe that Captain's popularity is causing shortcuts in the food prep.The sauce, however, did make up for the bland tasting meats. Heck, anyone can smoke meat at home and slather it with sauce to make it better.

    The brisket was chewy with no visible bark. They had a slightly re-heated texture. Quite dry, little moisture. Minimal smoke flavor. Very bland.

    The ribs came slathered in sauce. Really? Who serves ribs already sauced? I want to see my ribs and taste them before I determine if it needs any sauce. Because of the sauce whatever flavor from the rub was gone. No bark.

    Ahhh, now we tackle the pulled pork. Or should I say pork chunks smothered in sauce? Proper pulled pork is served just pulled off the pig, no sauce other then the rub used to smoke it. The pork was tender and cooked properly. The copious amounts of sauce hid any pork taste.

    Sausage? Nope, it's Kielbasa. I'm still confused why any self-respecting BBQ joint would serve a Polish sausage. Very bland tasting. No smoke flavor. It would have been better with sauerkraut and beer.

    The macaroni and cheese was lifeless and tasteless, although it looked appetizing. Very disappointing.

    The beans seemed like a variation of Ranch style beans and Boston baked beans. Although there was leftover BBQ meat in the beans, I could detect no BBQ or smoke flavor. Another bland offering. They were so thick you could spread them on your cornbread.

    The cornbread was a mix straight from a box or food service container. Very dry, lukewarm, and disappointing. Butter couldn't even save these muffins.

    With all the glowing reviews about Captain's I was quite disappointed. I really wanted to experience some decent BBQ which is hard to find in this part of Florida. While they might have been good in the beginning, I think their success has made them take shortcuts.

    Sorry you didn't get the meal you expected...

    My daughter-in-law and I ate at my new favorite restaurant this evening...the new Thai place that opened the end of last year. We both had the
    stir-fried asparagus and mushrooms with pork, and brown rice. Yummy!!! Both of us had enough to bring home and probably eat on twice again. We could have easily shared one meal. As an appetizer we had Thai egg rolls which are more like Chinese spring rolls with plum sauce.

    You are right about Sonny's or Bono's, that's not BBQ.

    Travel a little north to Fleming Island to Mojo's http://www.mojobbq.com/locations
