Brushfire BBQ and Gnarly Head

Anthony and I had our usual Sunday evening adventure today.  The trip out included dinner at Brushfire BBQ, Dollar Tree, and Walmart Neighborhood Market.

The first stop was at Brushfire BBQ Company at 22nd and Kolb.  Neither one of us had eaten there before but I had seen their ad multiple times on Facebook and I like barbecue, so I talked Anthony into it.  The place was about half full at 6:30 p.m. on a Sunday and we were able to get quick service.  Anthony said after dinner that it's one of his least favorite restaurant experiences (but he had nachos and ordered them with brisket... who does that?) and I thought it was good.  He liked the fries though.

I opted for a special they were having:  Prime Rib Sandwich.  The meat was delicious and tender and I'd highly recommend it.  It was put on the roll in one big ol' slab but was easy to eat.  I got it with potato salad.

After dinner, we walked over to the Dollar Tree store across the parking lot and passed the Fry's store in between, where you'll see below that I got a funny photo of the door of the Tucson Police Department Bicycle Patrol office there.  I got a picture frame for my boss and some storage containers for leftover food at home.  Everything was priced at one dollar.  Imagine that.

We then went to Walmart Neighborhood Market at Golf Links Rd and Kolb Rd.  It's one of the new stores and Anthony loves it.  I'm not a fan because they don't stock some items that the Walmart Market we usually go to has.  It's also extremely cold in there.

Dinner at Brush Fire was $29.41 for the two of us including one order of "The Fries".

I was there on a good day... when they had low prices on meat.

If you're hoping for Gnarly Head, you can find it at Walmart Neighborhood Market at Golf Links Rd and Kolb Rd.

Keebler Pitter Patter cookies.
Arguably much more delicious than the pitter patter of little feet.
