Mound City – Garrett’s BBQ Burgers & Tenderloins
Garrett’s BBQ Burgers and Tenderloins, located at 827 West Walnut Street Mound City, KS, is a cool little small town gem. Located right off scenic highway 7 in eastern Kansas, Garrett’s is just a leisurely drive south of Kansas City.
As the name implies, Garret’s BBQ Burgers and Tenderloins has all your typical small town café fare. What the name doesn’t imply is that they have a huge variety of ice cream desserts, including, floats, shakes, and cones in a myriad of flavors.
I visited on a hot June day, and my only complaint was that the air conditioning had a hard time keeping pace with the thermometer….but I guess this made the cold ice cream so much better!
I’m a barbecue lover, so besides ice cream, I was there for some pulled pork! I ordered The Mix Half Pounder, a sandwich with both a quarter pound of brisket and a quarter pound of pulled pork. The meat was juicy and delicious and full of the smoke flavor that I enjoy. The service was good, and the atmosphere was like you would expect from a small town eatery.
I hope to get there again, (on a cooler day), and enjoy some barbecued ribs. You should make it a point to get there too!
Until next time,
