Brennan & Carr Update

It was everything I wanted it to be...and more!

We started with some wings, the call them wing dings. Breaded and extra crispy, they serve them with the hot sauce on the side. Wings are usually not my first choice when it comes to an appetizer because they are so often prepared in a way that I don't like. Too spicy, not spicy enough. Too crispy, not crispy enough. You know the drill. These were just right.

Then we each had a roast beef and cheese sammy and some cheese fries. I went with the double dip (they dip the meat in the au jus before putting it on the sammy with the cheese, then they dip the entire sammy in the juice) and my esteemed colleague went with the FNJ. The fork and knife job. That's when they prepare the sammy and pour an entire ladle-ful of the au jus directly over it. Both were given huge thumbs up.

But we weren't done. I had to try that Gargulo Burger that the dude in yesterday's video ate. A cheeseburger cooked with the au jus with some roast beef, more cheese and onions. Then the entire monstrosity is dipped back in the au jus to make it a messy delight.

So for, um, dessert we ordered one to split. Plus some more cheese fries. Ha!

This one was even better than the hot roast beef sammy. Just a great idea. And our waitress was impressed with us for bringing our big boy appetites to the game. The odd thing was that neither of us had that rundown feeling you sometimes get when you eat too much meat. Rather we hat a meat euphoria going. A moo-phoria, if you prefer.

All in all? Brennan & Carr = big fucking win!

PS - Giving credit where credit is due...moo-phoria was Water Logged Canine's concoction.

Wabbit - Nah, but my buddy did a bit more of the heavy lifting. He finished off the fries when I couldn't go any further.

B.E. Earl said...

Savannah - it was real good!

Poppy - Well, it ain't high cuisine. But it was exactly what daddy needed.

Sybil - Exactly!

One split between two dudes in public? If it wasnae for your Bourbon & Bacon fame, I'd have had to mark you down as slightly gay on this one my friend.

Just kidding...

B.E. Earl said...

Jimmy - S'okay...our women thought it was a little gay too. And if splitting that burger is gay, then I don't wanna be straight! Wait...what?
