Headed there for the firs time tonight. I have heard fries 3 ways, but what are your favorites?

    I haven't been there yet, but I've been hearing buzz about the foie gras burger ...

      I've stopped by there for an appetizer/dessert when wandering Bishop Arts. Definitely get the trio of fries, and s'mores for dessert. Hope you'll have some people with you to share. Also like the blood orange margarita. No experience with their entrees, but I have seen the chicken fried hanger steak. It's worth noting that it's not a typical flat CFS, instead, theirs is basically a few battered blocks of meat.

        DON"T get the CFS. It's tough and is NOT good!! The grilled cheese is great.

        love tillmans, took my 3 aunts when they came to town.

        smoked brisket quesadillas
        trio of fries
        honey lavender salmon
        duck/cherry spaetzel dish is bomb.com/awesome
        smores with the honey, orange and maple marshmellows

        and the blood orange rita is fantastic

        all awesome. the foie gras burger sounds better than it is...not that its bad, just not food-gasm like it sounds.

          For a foie burger, I would hit The Porch. Its the burger with everything on it, including a fried egg. I saw a guy order last weekend and he doubled the eggs. Some people eh?

          And Jon, don't think we didn't jot down the date you used the phrase 'bomb.com'.

            What is it with eggs on burgers?? The Love Shack has that burger with the fried quail's egg on it ... I dunno ... just seems wrong.

              It is pure GENIUS is what it is. The yolk breaks and lubricates the sandwich. Genius I say. Not too unlike egg on enchiladas. I cannot eat them any other way.

                Right. If you can add bacon, why not eggs? Maybe not for the purist but tasty to me!

                We've been doing this one for decades.

          Well we had the Chicken Fried steak with mashed potatoes and greenbeans, the grilled bone in pork chop with goat cheese polenta and fried asparagas, and the BBQ ribs with mac and cheese. The three of us shared the entrees.

          All was good. The CFS was very good. Not your normal CFS but cooked to a perfect medium rare. THey are large fried cubes of beef rather than a flat "steak". The pork chop was huge and well paired with the polenta. The ribs and mac n cheese was ok but I wouldn't order it again.

          Blood orange rita was excellent but $10. Their specialty mojito (can't remember the exact name) was decent.

          I dont know what all the hype is about concerning the fries three ways. They weren't all that great. I would have rather had fries one way and had them taste better. The fries at Capital Pub are better and so are the sauces.

          Cornbread was very good. Not as good as Eatzi's but good. I'd get it again rather than the fries.

          The whole experience was like an up-scale Cowboy Chow. I'll go again.
