Okay - so I didn't have the Cheese Boulders on this outing - but man - how can you not mention them? I mean - literally it's a fried ball of cheese - and they give you more than one!!!
Yes - I'm talking about the one and only Buckhead Mountain Grill in Newport. It's in the little nook that also houses Don Pablos and Joe's Crab Shack.
We went today in celebration of a coworker that's having a baby tomorrow. Well - Matt's not actually having the baby - his wife is. Yeah for Matty! He's got about 12 hours of peace, quiet and money in his bank account left!
You know - they do have salads on the menu - but man - how can I get a salad when there's all this completely unhealthy good stuff staring at me? I wish I could go to the willpower store and buy a lifetime subscription...cuz I have none!
I started with tortilla soup because it was about 20 below zero inside...why is it that the AC needs to be set to "North Pole" in August? It was fine - mediocre - cheese, chicken and a little spicy - barely spicy really.
Then I ordered the meatloaf with macaroni & cheese. I'm not a big mashed potatoes and gravy fan - so I opted for the M&C. The meat loaf was pretty good - I'd rather have a smaller portion of meat loaf and actually have some vegetables with it.
I was just so cold inside that the meatloaf sounded good. I should have gotten the soup with a salad but damn the M&C was calling my name. The M&C was good too - a bit oily - like it had sat around a while - but the flavor was cheesy and good.
Overall - this is an uninspired review for an uninspired meal. The service was fine - quick enough but the guy wasn't very pleasant. He acted pissy when we said there was only 6 instead of 8 - guess he was counting on a bigger tip...
It's not a place I choose to go - but when I do go - I'm not really disappointed or happy - it was fine.
I'll give it 2 star = Eh, I'll go back if you're buying! Nobody bought but I didn't pick it either...
