Food Diaries: Monkey Wrench Smokehouse

IMG_5578I would love to tell you that I went to Monkey Wrench in Travelers Rest for the BBQ, but that would be a lie.

IMG_5584I kept seeing photos of their banana pudding on Instagram and I COULD NOT HANDLE it any longer! I had to have it. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint. It was worth the drive (which was only seven minutes, but still…)

IMG_5579Don’t worry, the rest of the menu gets two thumbs up too. I highly recommend the pimento cheese appetizer. If you love PC as much as I do, you’ll appreciate this dish.

IMG_5580From the BBQ to the sides, the experience was impeccable.

I do have to say, as a parent, more than the food I appreciated the “backyard” feel.

IMG_5588I’m thinking we’ll be adding Monkey Wrench as a summer go-to.
