Fletcher’s, Hit And Miss

Fletcher's

I’ve kept a close eye on Fletcher’s, waiting for it to finally open. Having a BBQ joint just few blocks from your apartment is a pretty exciting thing though I’m also walking distance from Fort Reno.

One night, my friends and I decided to check out this newly opened place before getting drinks at Skylark. We walked into a pretty bare and boring looking place that I felt didn’t had much personality. But I was there for meat and not the decor. Sadly that night they were out of the char siu but had everything else. With the four of us, we decided to get a platter of all the meats (ribs, brisket and pork shoulder) plus 3 sides (mac n’cheese, beans and cucumber salad).

Both the brisket and pork shoulder were mighty good, tender and delicious. The ribs were a little dry and tough and while the beans and cucumber sides were good, I was quite disappointed with the mac n’cheese.

I will most definitely go back for more since I really want to try their char siu and heck, it’s only a few blocks from my apartment. If you’re like my friend, Scott, that cares more about brisket than anything then head on over to Fletcher’s.
