Thanks for the report. We hit it last weekend. For the most part we feel the same but interestingly enough, we didn’t feel the same way about the heaviness. Afterwards we were commenting that we thought it was pretty light and not greasy. We each had four pieces of dark and split an order of the fried okra, no other sides or bread. A fair amount of fried food with no palate cleanser.
For context, we were regular visitors to Flossies, regulars to Pann’s and hit Ray’s a few times when they were a truck at Alibi Room and we could just walk over with no lines.
Overall, I liked them but they didn’t hold up to my taste memory of my Memphis visit when I ate at that outpost twice. I remember the seasoning being better balanced, the meat a little juicer and the crust a little crunchier. Also the pieces seemed a bit on the small side. Although the table next to us ordered the 3 piece white and the breast pieces were huge.
My wife is the okra fan in the family and she liked their take. Light crisp coating, firm good texture inside, none of the mushiness or sliminess that makes a bad fried okra.
