Black angus beef patty, pepperjack cheese, jalapenos, Santa Fe Sauce, lettuce, tomato. $7.06 Carl’s Jr., San Francisco CA
Fast food burgers NEVER look as good as the menu photos, but this hamburger from Carl’s Jr. is just pathetic! I just want to laugh at how ridiculously small and unappetizing it looks. I guess that’s what I get for succumbing to my fast food urges.
Pepper jack scramble, chorizo and roasted jalapeno relish, chipotle aioli on a brioche bun, potato wedges, cantaloupe. $12
Griddle Fresh, San Francisco CA
First of all, the service here was SO horrible! They were super slow and completely unattentive. It was the hardest I’ve had to work to flag a server down every time I needed something. Now to the food. It gave me heartburn. Between the spicy chorizo, spicy jalapeno, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli there was SO much heavy spice and fat that I really couldn’t take it. On a positive note, the scramble was well cooked, the bun nicely toasted, and the cantaloupe was ripe and sweet.
Chicken, refried beans, pepper jack/cheddar shred and scallions on tri-colored tortilla chips with pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole. $9.95 Bongo Johnny’s, Palm Springs CA
This was a huge plate of nachos, but they weren’t anything special. I guess the multi-colored chips were supposed to elevate it but that didn’t really happen. It was pretty standard nachos, and dare I say a little on the bland side.
Flour tortillas filled with grilled shrimp topped with a chipotle lime slaw, pico de gallo, pepperjack cheese, and sweet chili infused sour cream. $10 Henry’s House, Charleston SC
The shrimp usually comes fried, but I requested them grilled. They were OK, but what really annoyed me was that they were supposed to be half-off for happy hour but we were still charged full price. Super lame! I guess it was also pointless to order the shrimp grilled since the tacos are covered in sour cream anyway.
Fleet Landing Restaurant, Concord Street. I haven’t been here yet, but would like to since it’s one of the few waterfront restaurants in downtown. People seem to enjoy their shrimp and grits as well as the fried green tomatoes.
