Eclectic Eatery is a food cart located
|Now at Cartlandia; picture taken February 2013
It's basically a BBQ menu, from the pulled pork and brisket to the cole slaw and baked beans. Scott reeled me in with a sampling of his brisket coated in BBQ sauce. And that, folks, was all she wrote. Virtually addicted. Hypnotized. Servant to Scott's wizardry in this magical food cart. Juicy and extremely tender meat. The brisket disintegrated on my tongue. The BBQ sauce had the thick, sweet-tangy characteristics I would do shots of (although I'll maintain my professionalism and refrain from that -- for the time being).
|Took a shot of the back of Scott's cart as well, just randomly did it
|Opened at the beginning of 2012!
Came by about four weeks in!
|A sweet BBQ sauce and a spicier BBQ sauce!

And then I was sad...the food was all gone. Why can't there be some tube underneath my table pumping more of this chicken and cole slaw into my container? Why?!
I saw Scott putting more of his amazing meats in his smoker as I left. Leaving this cart was like having to say goodbye to your girlfriend. Sigh.
|I had to take a picture of the bones
I rarely (and I do mean rarely) do this
The meat came CLEAN off the damn bone
Just out-of-this-world, perfectly smoked, slow-cooked chicken
"I want seconds!"
"Oh my God"
"I want more of it!"
"I need a second mouth to attack it from underneath!"
"That was f****** amazing!"
Etc. (We can continue this for a while, but I'll stop here)
I was still in a stupor, even as I (safely) got off I-5, navigated back to my place, and went about my usual business. That's one powerful meal...great Scott!
Once I break out of this several week-long trance -- at the least -- I'll come back for more. Don't worry, I'll get home just fine, thanks.
The cart's generally open Tuesdays through Saturdays, starting at 11 a.m. Scott will be open until 6 p.m. on Saturdays (otherwise open 'til 4)
It's extremely rare that one visit nets such a high score on my blog. Go buy Scott's food. Now. Camp outside the food cart if you need to. 9.5/10
