Jambo’s BBQ Shack

In a brilliant flash of marketing genius, owner Jamie Geer created a spectacle of a sandwich that just aches to be photographed. The “Jambo Texan” is a stack of sliced and chopped brisket, pulled pork, smoked bologna, sausage and ribs all layered between two thick slices of Texas toast. With a couple of sides it should be able to feed a family of four, and it’s only $12. As a sandwich it’s completely impractical, but it has worked wonders to spread the word about this place via social media. It makes a statement, but if you try to get your face around the thing you’re left pretty much hopeless. We tried. But when it’s disassembled the parts can stand on their own.
