Bookers BBQ 4709 Shadeland Ave.
This is a little hole in the wall in a strip mall that is supposed to have some good Q.
It is also a neat and tidy little joint.
I especially liked the window treatment. How often do you see curtain sheers and swags in a business?
Or an aquarium;outside of a Dr.’s office.
As cozy as the spot was we were quickly disappointed. They were OUT OF Q. It seems they took the last 3 days off for New Years and were building their inventory. I think Pat was more bummed than I. They serve breakfast all day so he was somewhat placated with a bacon platter.
I had an easy choice. Their House Burger. That is a “big” burger patty filled with peppers and onion; like a meat loaf. Then topped with cheese. I had no idea how big until I got it.
It was a full pound of meat and I liked everything about it. From the crisp exterior to the peppers and onions inside. From the processed cheese to the over sized toasted bun. It was a guilty treat. As much as I enjoyed it I could only eat half.
Bookers has very reasonable pricing; both of our lunches were $7 each. Frankly I don’t see how they can put out a one pound burger stuffed with onions and peppers for 7 bucks.
Will I be back. Of course. I have to try their BBQ.
