I know that I have already posted about The Grindhouse, those delicious burgers and fries and onion rings, mmm.... but this Fat Friday was especially nice as we got to share it with our family. This was our version of a Rehearsal Dinner, but really, it was a chance to enjoy some good food and beer together before our big day. This weekend was really a great way to catch up with our family that live some distance away, and I think that helped make the day all the more special. Sadly, Matt's family from New Mexico weren't able to make it in time for dinner, due to a cancelled flight, but Norm and Carol, hopefully you can enjoy the evening through this blog post.
Even though the burger with fries or onion rings were a popular choice that night, with a couple different options on the menu, others chose to sample some of the other items at Grindhouse. My brother, Jeff, chose the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw and onion rings, and according to him, it was really good! I wasn't surprised to hear that, but he really liked the fresh bread it was served on. That's key for me, too, when ordering the pulled pork. You need a sturdy enough bread to soak up the sauces, but stay firm enough to not fall apart in your hands. Jeff said it passed the test. We'll have to try one for ourselves next time pulled pork is on the menu.
