The brisket quesadilla was delicious! The brisket was tender and moist. The chicken dinner was also tender and moist, and the flavor was amazing! Good coleslaw and baked beans. Overall very satisfied with our dinner.

There can't be a favorite when it is all amazing. Although I missed my clove of garlic in the meatball, maybe next time!
