Tap30’s BBQ Brisket Quesadilla
By Lynda Wheatley | Aug. 1, 2020
A new and excellent addition to Tap30’s already clever pub fare (see their tater tot nachos — aka Totchos — and the only kids-menu Mac n’ Cheese we’ve ever seen offering cavatappi pasta coated in a house-made white cheddar and smoked gouda cheese sauce), the BBQ Brisket Quesadilla is, to put it mildy, da bomb.
Spicy, smokey, savory, and enough to feed two, this generous and messy handheld mixes “burnt ends black beans” with tender BBQ brisket, cilantro lime crema, summer-fresh tomatoes, white cheddar cheese sauce, and a chili avocado puree for which we felt zero shame when dribbling down our chins.
Do like we did, and pair it with a light beer and a seat on the spacious street-side deck, or munch while you people watch from the giant open window at front, or grab it for takeout. $15. Find Tap30 Pourhouse at 422 E. Mitchell St., Petoskey. (231) 881-952, www.tap30.com
