A couple of weeks ago I was passing through the small town of Olin, Iowa when Ol'Town Eats caught my eye. At first I was going to pass it by as I'd eaten lunch shortly before but when I spotted the smokers I went back around the block and stopped in.

The restaurant sells other items besides barbecue but was there any doubt about what I would order? Of course not.

Even though they were open the dining room was dark and empty (possibly because 1:30pm is after lunch and well before dinner) so I got my sandwich to go, which worked out well because there's a little park just down the street and I was able to sit at a picnic table to eat and relax for a bit.

And the sandwich was pretty good, too! It had a fair amount of smoke, the sauce wasn't too sweet, and while the slice of smoked provolone isn't traditional it was a nice complement to the meat.

Very cool. A friend of mine lives up that way. I'll have to ask her if she's ever heard of that place. Looks good!
