We were originally going to check out Smokey Bones. We drive up to to the place and as luck would have it, they’re closed for the day for renovations. We were given a $5 off our next visit coupon, which would be great if we lived anywhere near here. Our nearest option is Chili’s, so we take it. I’ve never been a fan of these type of chain restaurants and by that I mean: Chili’s, T.G.I. Fridays, Applebees & the now semi-defunct Bennigan’s. We order some appetizers and rather than waste your time discussing them, it can all be summed up as been there done that.
I decide on the Smokehouse Bacon Triple-The-Cheese Big Mouth Burger. Believe it or not that’s the actual name of the burger, what a waste of ink. It’s got extra thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon with three cheeses ( Smoked Cheddar, Swiss and Provolone), Sauteed Onions, and Jalapeño-Ranch Dressing. This is one of those cases where the flavors coming from the toppings overpower the burger itself. Although the burger itself was insignificant in this equation, I really dug the spicy Bacon. So the moral of the story? When in doubt get bacon on everything.
