Moorefield Edition: Baby Blues

Blues Smoke PitSooo, Moorefield happens to have two restaurants on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list, and they both happen to be right beside each other. Sooo, after dining at O'Neills, I may or may not have wandered over to Baby Blues, which was previously called Blues Smoke Pit. I think there's been a management change, though I was assured the food is still the same.

Blues Smoke PitBaby Blues has a pretty impressive exterior that is massive and has this worn barn feel with a sign hanging out front that says "Blues." Kinda cool. Inside, lots of - surprise - blue.

Blues Smoke PitBlues Smoke PitBlues Smoke PitBlues Smoke PitThe menu has bbq sandwiches, burgers, wraps, and more. This was a pretty easy decision for me, though. The pork sampler - written in at the bottom of the menu - is three sliders (a memphis red sandwich, a smoked pulled pork sandwich, and a North Carolina minced pork sandwich).

Blues Smoke PitTo be honest, I didn't love any of these sliders. And the cole slaw on the side was this mushy mayo pool that was just not appealing. The pork on all three of these was kinda of slimy/fatty. I don't really know how that happens. The one I like the most was the plain one that I added sauce to. That one was pretty good - the quality seemed better, and I liked the sauce provided at the table. But, I was mostly underwhelmed.
