We had to consume a good bottle of Pinot.
We’d had a very rich dinner the night before.
So we came up with this BRILLIANT idea of drinking the fine wine with Taco Bell, you know, to balance things out.
Great theory. Poor execution. Dinner FAIL.
I was passed out drunk an hour later, my dining companion was passed out from food coma.
And to add insult to injury, I thought I’d try these triple layer nachos instead of the tried-and-true chips and mmmmm nacho cheese sauce (which I love), and the nachos were pretty naff. And lots of packaging, which offends my psuedo-hippie sensibilities.
We couldn’t even make it through an episode of Metalocalypse, and that show is just 15 minutes long!
Is there any beverage that pairs well with Taco Bell? Please advise.
Whoa, fancy pants McDonalds.
A Chicago resident took me through here to gawk at the hugeness of the place and the cushy seats and the soda fountain and the higher priced menu.
Love the Pez collection on the second floor, and the view, hey that’s not bad for a 40% markup on food that costs a buck or two to begin with. Can you order food at your table? Haw haw.
Of course, my companion mentioned the missing rock and roll memorabilia. Pity.
Fyi, I think they sent the Elvis to Paso “nowheresville” Robles in California, because I saw him there. He lives.
We didn’t order any food, just passing through as tourists. Can I take a picture of you? Where’s Michigan?
I don’t think I’d ever come here for the food. But today, I was to have lunch with a friend and it was cold and drizzly outside. We wanted to be indoors, all warm and comfy. For that, the Elephant Bar fits the bill.
Service, while acceptable, was so staged. Prices, pretty standard for pretty standard quality, high quantity food. My companion and I shared a seafood starter platter, and I got the club sandwich with side salad. So much dressing pooled on the plate and soaked into my sandwich bread. :(
Something I did think was neat was a mini-dessert selection. I love the smaller portions, with equally smaller prices. Like a cupcake with a little ice cream. I think the prices were $2.95 for desserts from this menu.
The other diners seemed consistently “meaty.” I wonder if this is an exotic treat for them. As for myself, I want the weather to improve, so I can dine comfortably elsewhere.
