Best Pulled Pork Sandwich I Ever Ate
Posted by on
LACEY, WASHINGTON -- We have been seeing Benje's (Ben-gie) mobile food service trailer since we came to Washington, and yesterday Crystal stopped byas it is only open on weekends. Benje Smith is the owner/operator of the business, and the unit has a stainless steel interior that is immaculate Benje sent me samples of the pulled pork and ribs, and with the first bite, I was transformed. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich, and I had the baked beans while Crystal had the macaroni salad. The pork is done to a T, and was juicy and tasty, while the beans were to die for. Crystal is not much on beans, but she tried a spoonful and said those beans were fantastic. Benje's menu consists of pulled pork, ribs, and BBQ, along with sides and bottled soft drinks. This is not Chicago style BBQ, no cole slaw on the sandwich, but real southern BBQ. Beje has three sauces, and the one we got was just right. The prices are reasonable, and the food is fantastic.

If you come to Lacey, watch for Benje's unit in front of RV Welding and Hitches on Martin Way E. You will not regret it.

Sounds great! I love good pulled pork, and only a few places around here make it the way I like.

Good review.

Glad it's near lunch time. I'm heading for the refrigerator. VH

If a place is only open on the weekends that tells me that individual probably has a job elsewhere during the week, or is semi-retired, and weekends are reserved for what he enjoys doing most...providing excellent food in a sparkling clean environment. Giving samples would be cost prohibitative in most eating establishments but it made a believer out of you. Wish we had one in this area. Good BBQ is one of my favorites.

Good review, we have a similar place called Burrell's BBQ - in Santa Ana. Were lucky though as they are open all week. You're hungry as soon as you find parking and open the car door and smell the Southern BBQ cooking away.

Out of all the choices regarding BBQ, I find pulled pork the most arousing. Great review!

I've known Benje since he was 17ys old as a private in the U.S. Army. He is the most honest and dedicated person you will ever,ever meet! It translates directly into his food preparation with the utmost Love and Care. " You need no teeth to eat my meat" is his motto.
