I don’t know where the béarnaise sauce fits in, but they gave me an entire gravy boat of it, lol! I’m not sure that béarnaise screams bbq to me, but whatever. I’m not gonna judge another country’s interpretation of foreign cuisine. This burger was decent but I wish it had more chili sauce and none of the béarnaise sauce. The bbq flavored fries didn’t taste very bbq-y either.

The chicken tasted fine, a little dry in some parts. But the yellow plate really bothered me for some reason. I thought it was an unfortunate color to serve food on especially with an ill-fitting cast iron plate on top.

Holy cow quesadilla - Holy Cow!
I was excited for this quesadilla, but when it came out there was way too much sauce on top. I certainly like saucy things, but I don’t know if I really wanted that much mayonnaise on my quesadilla. Some of the right flavors were there, but I think the tortillas were old. They tasted a bit musty like it was about to mold.
