Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me?

The other night, on my way to the Cracker concert at the Crossroads, Ancillary Adams and I and our lovely spouses stopped by Gates on Main. On a whim, and because I knew my wife would share her food if I made a bad choice, I tried the mutton.

Sweet mother of mercy. This is freaking barbecue that tastes like lamb, but it's all crunchy and fatty but the fat melts in my mouth with all the spices and, well, just damn.

Why didn't any of you people tell me about this??

Based on the the experience the other night, I would have to rate Gates as undervalued by those have an aversion to tourists.

The food was great, and the beer was cold and cheap.

Dan, if you thing the mutton at Gates was good, wait until you try the spit roasted baby at Oklahoma Joe's.
