Boo Koo BBQ

I had heard about this place but didn’t have a chance to check it out until now. My friend had a groupon and I was dying to try their mac and cheese balls and so we made the trek out to Mid City to dine out. Unfortunately, we went on a Monday night when they have their quiz bowl. It was packed with people playing this trivia game. Kinda hard to enjoy your food when there are people standing around your table, staring at you and waiting to pounce on your table as soon as you get up……….
I was tempted to get the brisket sandwich but their usual Boo Koo burger which is 100% ground brisket, dressed, with boudin, melted pepper jack and Boo Bang sauce.
My Boo Koo burger was juicy and delicious! The bread was crisp and toasted, and the Boo Bang sauce was out of this world! It came with some fries on the side which did hold up on their own but the burger was out of this world! Can’t wait to go back and try another burger.
the mac and cheese balls said they had truffle flavoring but that flavor was lost to me. The mac and cheese is rolled in panko bread crumbs and then deep fried and served with Boo Bang sauce. These were awesome! Too bad there’s only 2 in the order.
My friend had asked the guy at the front window which burger he would eat and he said his current favorite was the PB and J burger. I’ve had the peanut butter and bacon burger at Yo Mama’s and was not impressed so I told her she was on her own. when it came out, she fell in love with it and insisted that I try a bite. I’m glad she did, it was delicious. I think the difference was the jelly, it added a sweetness that adds a “je ne sais quoi” to the burger.
