Located in an extremely busy strip mall in Hercules, Kinder’s Meats Deli BBQ serves up delicious BBQ to lots of people. As you enter the restaurant, plenty of menu boards are posted with multiple options. I noticed an option for a filet mignon sandwich on the daily specials, so I did not look at the full menu. Plenty of other sides are available in the cold case and hot case including potato salad, baked potato, and mac & cheese. After placing my order, the order taker becomes the sandwich maker and works on my sandwich. After the sandwich was complete, she became my cashier. During this whole time, a large operation of staff continues to help the next customer while going through the entire ordering process.
Finding seating outside, I began to enjoy my sandwich. The fresh sourdough bread contained the lettuce, sauce, and filet mignon. Each bite of the sandwich did cause the meat to shift on the bread, which caused the meat to overhang and parts of the sandwich left meatless. The beef was tender and the accompanying sauce was delicious with sweet notes. There was just enough meat to complete the sandwich.
Overall, Kinder’s serves up delicious BBQ at reasonable prices. Their BBQ sauce tastes delicious with their meats. Service was great and their workflow impressive. If I was in the mood for BBQ again in the area, I would definitely give Kinder’s a try again.
