do they still offer pickles and coleslaw on every table as an appy? haven't been there in years.
i used to love that place. good sangria, and i loved the chatanooga chicken sammich, as well as the swiss and mushroom smothered chicken, and the bleu stuffed burger. it's weird that after 15 years or more, i still remember and can picture the dishes i enjoyed there.
quick story: years ago, my church theatre group used to perform a "living stations of the cross" on good friday. it became so popular that we were invited to perform it for a larger crowd outdoors in that little park with the gazebo in westwood, across from the iron horse. well, being blue eyed and having long, light brown hair circa 1980, i played jesus (as everyone knows nazarenes looked like aryans...
we would silently act out each station while the bible passages were read over the loud speaker. i was "pretend" crucified on a 12 foot tall cross and propped up on that gazebo for hours as thousands of people went by in a procession, saying their prayers. being early april, and i was only hanging there in a loin cloth, i froze my butt off.
one year during dress rehearsal just before the performance, the actors who were supposed to take me down from the cross and wrap me in a death shroud messed up and dropped me, causing my back to slide down the cross, peeling a huge strip of skin off my back on the foot peg.
well, we went on a little while later, my back bleeding profusely. little old ladies passed out, as children cried over the "too realistic" blood on my tunic.
we got a lot of complaints over the gore factor, and weren't invited back...
getting back: one burger i like is a leitrim burger.
85% lean, of beef or lamb, (i also like buffalo or vennison). a slice o' irish cheddar melted on top, then raw sweet or red onion, a good squirt of ketchup, a slice of irish bacon, beefsteak tomato slices, romaine or crisp red, or even boston bib lettuce, on a multigrain burger roll schmeared with mayo.
