I ordered the trout, my friend ordered the chicken and both of us loved what we got. While my trout was delicious and just right on the smokiness scale, I was particularly impressed with the fluffy, fresh bun (too often the weak spot in any sandwich). The only negative about them was that they were a bit messy to eat.
That was because the sandwiches were huge and completed stuff with yumminess. Considering that in addition to a massive sandwich, you also get a good sized side (I went with the spinach salad and highly recommend it) and popcorn, the $12 price tag is a great deal.
I found that lunch wasn’t anywhere near the jam-packed experience that dinner at Barque can be but then I did go a few weeks ago. If other people know about these sandwiches, I’m sure lunch time is getting just as crazy as dinner time.
