We weren’t planning on going to Mendon Riverfest until we drove by Mendon Riverfest on the way to J’s parents house.

We went and picked her parents up then decided to go back for some elephant ears.  The kids played in the water inflatables for a while before we lured them away with the offer of cotton candy.

I wanted some actual food and not just sugar.  I left J to hand the sugar stuff then I headed towards a BBQ food truck to get myself something savory.

I have heard of Lazy Man Bar-B-Que before.  Their home base is in rural Schoolcraft but I’ve seen them parked at Bronson Park several times for Lunchtime Live!

The food truck looks like log cabin.  Unlike other food trucks, the order window is on the end of the trailer instead of the side.  The food truck was parked next to more traditional fair food trailers but it was such a great option to have BBQ instead of just cotton candy for dinner.  There’s a counter by the window with a couple choices of BBQ sauce and two rolls of paper towels hanging off the side of the building.

The menu changes depending on the day.  They offer all the BBQ staples at some point.  The day’s menu is on a chalkboard set up right outside of the trailer.

The Beef Brisket Tacos were really tempting but I stayed simple with the Beef Brisket Sandwich.  The sandwich came on a hoagie bun with meat overflowing.  It was topped with a horsey sauce and I put just a little bit of their sweet BBQ sauce just so I could get a taste.   The meat was pretty tender with a nice bark and smoke ring around the outside.  It didn’t need any sauce but I’m glad I took just a little to try it out.  The sandwich cost $10 but the amount of meat made it worth that price.

J didn’t initially get anything but when I sat down at a nearby picnic table with my sandwich, her dad went to get something so she asked him to grab her some of the Mac Daddy.

This small paper boat is a creamy, delicious mac & cheese that is topped with tender, smokey pulled pork.  There was quite a bit of pulled pork on top of the pasta so it was almost it’s own meal.  She added a little bit of the sweet BBQ sauce to hers as well although the meat was so good it didn’t really need it.  The Mac Daddy was also $10.

There are so many BBQ food trucks out there and it’s hard to stand out.  I think portion size is what really makes Lazy Man Bar-B-Que stand out to me.  The food is most BBQ done right is but I typically feel like I need more to eat from most BBQ food trucks.  I didn’t feel like I needed to eat anything else (even though I did help J finish hers) after finishing my sandwich.
