VAL! VAL! VAL!
Hick had business down south Monday, in the town of our favorite casino. He asked Sunday night if I wanted to ride along. OF COURSE! You know, to keep Hick company while he was sweaving down the back roads and the interstate. I'm selfless like that.
Anyhoo... Hick dropped me off, then went about his business, joining me at 1:15 to meet up for lunch. I mentioned last time we were there that they have a new menu. Higher prices, less food. Sheesh! You'd think they were trying to make money or something.
Last time I had the Smokehouse Burger, which was pulled pork and BBQ brisket, topped by two onion rings. I said I'd have it again, but... something else caught my eye.
First let's start with Hick's burger and onion rings. I guess he didn't like his Shrimp Po' Boy from last time. Or maybe he's just not very adventurous.
Sorry, I gave the burger short shrift in this photo, because you've seen Hick's burger multiple times. The onion rings were what captured my attention. SO MANY! Have you noticed that when Hick gets the combo, he always has his main item in a tray, and his side in another tray? And MINE are always combined in the same cardboard tray! If I didn't know better, I might think it was because Hick pays the bill and gives the tip when we order!
Anyhoo... Hick gave me a pity onion ring when he was done. Maybe he was full from his Cookies and Cream Pie, which he ate first, and I didn't have time to get a picture. He said it was a generous portion, and not like that tiny sliver of cheesecake he got one time.
I was quite satisfied with my new favorite meal, the BRISKET ON TOAST!
Sorry! I couldn't wait to try it! I gave up on the over-fried old-oil tater tots, and went for the fries this time. They were better than the tots, though I would prefer them without whatever that seasoning is on them. Enough about the fries, let's get to that brisket! Look at the BBQ sauce dripping out the bottom.
This was the most delicious sandwich EVER! Sure, it was only on regular white bread, but there was enough butter on that toasted edge to satisfy The Pony (who was working and unable to accompany us). The brisket itself was delectable. Just the right amount of fat and crispy edges and smokiness. YUM! I could eat one right now! I will definitely get that sandwich again next time.
Of course, I could have just been in a good mood from my slot exploits right before lunch...
That is a story for tomorrow. With pictures, and a possible weirdo encounter.
Some interesting foods. We are taking interesting and going into okay.ReplyDelete
They can be interesting or boring, as long as they're as delicious as that brisket sandwich!Delete
Sounds like you were in my neck of the woods? Hope you won.ReplyDelete
No, more like your FOOT of the woods! Down in Cape. We were in your neck of the woods at the end of June, when The Pony forgot his ID, and of course won a hand pay! I was a winner that day, too, though not as much.Delete
I don't like onion rings, too much batter and not enough onion. Now if they battered and fried an slice of onion, that might be better. Your sandwich does look delicious.ReplyDelete
At least Hick's onion rings had actual ONION inside, and not the SKIN, like I had in one of the two that came on my Smokehouse Burger last time!Delete
Made me hungry!!ReplyDelete
I want to go back as soon as possible for one of those sandwiches! And the slots too...Delete
