I was here for lunch which was unfortunate since the Dinner Menu had some items that have had my eye virtually: Bite-Sized Meatballs, Warm Pretzels, Chicken Wings, Rock Shrimp Mac & Cheese, Black Jack Porter House Meatloaf, & Chef’s Choice Grilled Hawg Wings.
My wife Marcela had their Butternut Bisque Soup and the Turkey Melt. She enjoyed both and I didn’t even get to steal a bite as I was too busy in Social Media land “lol” ing and “Liking” things, that Spiced Cream on the Soup looks really good.
No shocking news here but I ordered the “Prohibition” Burger (Cheddar Cheese, Bacon & Special Sauce) and I discarded the Lettuce, Tomato, & Onion. This dude also comes with Fries and a side of Ketchup. Once the offenders were removed I was able to enjoy the Burger. Tap 42 has their own meat blend which was seasoned perfectly. But even more than that, the grind was great. It was on the verge of being crumbly which I happen to love.
I really couldn’t make out what was in the “Special Sauce”. At first glance, it seemed like a Thousand Island dressing kinda deal but I could swear I tasted some Mustard in there. It would have made for a better dipping sauce for the Fries than the ‘ol standby, ketchup.
I’ve gotta come back and try out that Black Jack Porter House Meatloaf for dinner. It sounds interesting and right up my comfort food alley.
