Sweet Gregory P's is where you go for bar-b-que in Port Mansfield. Pulled pork, beef brisket, smokehouse sausage, ribs, and smoked ham was on the menu the day we stopped in for a late lunch.
What you see in the picture is my pulled pork sandwich. Accompanying it is my apple cider coleslaw. The photo also shows some of the selections from the condiment bar: onions, bread and butter pickles, and pickled okra.
Bob choose the brisket sandwich and potato salad. Greg cut thick slabs of meat from the brisket and piled it on the grilled Keyser roll.
The meat is not cooked in BBQ sauce. Instead, Greg directed us to two simmering pots, for us to help ourselves. One was labeled as being a traditional vinegar based sauce. The other, a sweeter, honey based sauce. We liked the flavor, and the touch of spicy heat, of both sauces.
Neither the meat nor the BBQ sauces had an overpowering smoked flavor.
We finished our meals by sharing a serving of warm, home-made bread pudding. It was topped with hot caramel sauce. And, ice cream. And, whipped fluff.
Sweet Gregory P's is open for early breakfast. They offer breakfast tacos with eggs and choices of BBQ'ed meats. On weekends, there's a breakfast buffet.
Greg and his wife own and run the restaurant. They proclaim to having a strong dislike for doing dishes. So, appropriately enough for a BBQ joint, food is served on paper or disposable plastic.
I don't know how crowded the parking would be in the summer months, but during the winter there is plenty of parking for RVs.
