Tonight Brother and Sissy took Timothy out for his belated graduation dinner. I tagged along.
We went to:
8943 Katy Freeway
Sissy was already waiting at the restaurant when me, Brother, and Timothy got there. This was sitting on the table and our first question was, “Is this real?!”
And real it was. It’s their very own Shiner Bock Beer Bread [with butter] | free. Yum. It was very melt-in-your-mouth kind of deal and very wheaty tasting. It was gone pretty quickly.
Sissy went on ordering the Artichoke and Spinach dip for us to share … but the manager came out and told us it was out. He did ask if we wanted something else instead, giving us other options customers love.
We ended up getting the French Fried Onions [thinly sliced & piled high served with our border sauce] | $6.49. It wasn’t a favorite for me. The onions were too thinly sliced (guess that’s why it’s french?) and it was too much batter than onions. We couldn’t even taste the onions.
We also ordered the Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries [fried potatoes, topped with melted jack & cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream, & chives] | $6.99. When we ordered this, we asked for bacon on the side. But when it came to us, bacon was everywhere! So we told the manager and he fixed it right up for us! This was a win! We all loved this. And ate it all up!
Because of kitchen error and server error, we ended up not having to pay for our French Fried Onions or Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries. WIN WIN WIN!
For my main entree I got the Chopped Sirloin Steak [Certified Angus Beef ground steak topped with: grilled onions, cheddar cheese & diced tomatoes OR grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms & cognac pepper sauce] | $14.99. Plus you get either soup or salad with your entree. I got Potato soup.
The potato soup was a big soupy, thick deliciousness. The chopped sirloin was not up to par with others that I’ve had before. It wasn’t disgusting but it wasn’t great. I only had 1/4 and packed the rest home. The mashed potatoes were a fluffy cloud of goodness but I packed the rest home as well since it should go pretty well with the steak.
Those free appetizers really filled me up. And on top of that, Sissy ordered a Shiner Bock before we arrived and she needed help with it.
We had the worst server in the earth of servers. He wasn’t attentive and rarely checked in on us and kept getting things incorrect. Though he tried to smile through you could tell he was unhappy working there. Sir, please quit your job. You would be so much happier.
But that didn’t make us angry with our meal. We had fun together reminiscing and talking about future things. Then we went back to our house and played Partini. Never heard of it?! It’s like charades but better.
Sissy, Timothy, and I never played before. We chose teams and in the end, brother and I won.
So far it’s been a good 4 day weekend. Not anything to really complain about except for the whole getting sick thing.
Tomorrow Brett is coming in and we’re going to bbq for Fourth of July. Sahweet!!
What are your plans for Fourth of July day?!
Time to relax. Night y’all!!
