I decided to start with the Smoked Red Chicken Chili ($5) – it’s a steep price for a cup of chili but it was really good. I haven’t typically had a red chicken chili. It was extremely rich and had a developed flavor. It also had a kick to it. I love the cheese and crunchy tortillas on top.
Susie went for the Braised Short Rib Grilled Cheese ($13) on my reco – I was really drooling – I mean look at it – aren’t you drooling by now? Susie loved it – but duh – who wouldn’t?!
Dawn chose the Avocado & Tomato Grilled Cheese ($9) – this had Pepper Jack cheese so I knew she would choose it – she’s a sucker for cheese with a kick. She liked hers as well.
I – of course – had to get the House Burger ($10) with cheddar, greens, tomato, bacon and crispy onions – all of their sandwiches also come with fries (good for the price considering other places we’ve visited).
It’s a good burger – it’s not overly thick and for the most part you can smush it all down. I liked it but I would still have much rather had the pizza or anything of theirs with short rib (Hey IPC – can you make a short rib and ‘shroom pizza? You could call it the Hussy! I’m just sayin.)
And – as is now the “in” thing to do the burger was too big for my mouth. I tried to smush as much possible and was able to make it work.
Susie also turned me onto the House Side Pickles that you can order for A DOLLAR!!!!!! Okay – so this was worth the price of admission. These were awesome – I helped her devour them and even took the dare to eat the pickled garlic. It wasn’t as strong as a roasted garlic on a Dewey’s Pizza but it had some bite to it. And again – THEY ARE A DOLLAR. This is ridiculous and amazing! There should be a whole article on the pickles – but at least here – they’re getting a paragraph.
Why Should You Go? I love IPC – it’s so delicious. The burger was a good burger – I’d love to have some amazing sauce on it – or maybe some of those short ribs?! But most likely – I’ll have pizza again 🙂 and continue to enjoy the best view in the city.
