So, here we are traveling, and the presence of family all around meant we mostly ate at restaurants with them – resulting in D&me eating more restaurant meals in one week than in the previous year, unless I miss my guess. This one was really, really good. started with warm dark bread – molasses bread? – and whipped butter (below).
The place L suggested was closed Mondays, but R&E had seen the A1A (a highway) Ale Works, and it was well reviewed, so we went there. Glad we did! D’s Dad P, in-laws B&L, “kids” R&E, and D&me. I didn’t see what everyone else ordered, but I went for the “starter” menu so as not to have too much to eat (for a change). But OMG, this was a “starter”?
For four people, maybe…
Anyway, the chicken was perhaps a bit excessive, but very nicely done, the tortillas perfectly crispy, the sour cream sour cream, the guacamole good, the Pico de Gallo outstandingly delicious. I had a side of sweet potato fries which were not nearly as good, and completely unnecessary. Fortunately, D ate most of them 🙂
R&E chose a beer for me, which was intriguing and I really enjoyed it: a chocolate beer called “Count Shakula,” which for some reason doesn’t appear on the menus online. So no description, unfortunately. There was something besides chocolate in it…
Less successful than dinner by a long shot. With B&D having to check out a potential nursing home for P (when he needs it, eventually) L&I went to Theo’s for lunch. L suggested the gyro burger (gyro on a bun instead of a pita) and I was not at all thrilled with the meat. Served with potato chips, which I enjoyed (when was the last time I had chips?) and a gratis chocolate chip cookie at the end. The place has a fun decor.
