Its rare we go to the same restaurants two weeks in a row. Its rare we go out two weeks in a row while I’m talking about that. But, this week is my birthday weekend and my best friend and her boyfriend had asked to meet up for a dinner double date to celebrate together. After having a rather hard time deciding where to go, my boyfriend suggested a second visit to Jack Saloon’s, especially since we couldn’t try out the burgers last time because of the Groupon deal, this time we could give it a shot 🙂
Let’s look at what this time’s foodie adventures brought for us!
We decided to live on the wild side and my best friend suggested a round of shots on her so I suggested that these shots called Revolver looked the best with a mix of Jack Daniel’s and Apricot brandy.
I personally love apricot brandy so these shots were really good. Maybe not such a great idea to do a shot on an empty stomach but we all were laughing and joking around, especially since the guys each took a pint of beer which was on special at $5 and us girls took a Smirnoff Ice.
Dinner came relatively soon after. The deal was on 4 selected burgers. While the others took those choices, I broke out of the pack and had a massive craving for a pulled pork sandwich and those scrumptious onion rings from the week before. They were calling out to me…
Our sides out swapped so we did the change ourselves afterwards. You aren’t seeing things, those are actually fries 😉
The pulled pork sandwich was really delicious. It was cooked right to perfection and it was perfectly spiced and whatever sauce they had on there was mouthwatering. If you can believe it, this time the onion rings were even better.
Maybe being with good company makes things even better than they already are 🙂
The two guys took the Jack Saloon Cheeseburger. This is my boyfriend’s “plate”. He has a soft spot for fries so he tries out these amalgamation of fries (I think that’s the word they used in the menu) for combining three sorts of fries: sweet potato, normal and something else that I can’t remember.
From his reaction and lack of talking, I think he was enjoying his burger 😉
Next, my best friend chose the Australian-Mediterranean Burger at least I think that’s the name of the burger. It was like a mountain of veggies full of beets, lettuce, tomato and a double patty hidden under all this. It took her a while to get through it but she seemed to enjoy it as well.
Jack Saloon is definitely a worthy place for a second visit. The music is something that I’m not sure I mentioned but some quality stuff there. There’s a lot of throwback music style and I love that! Its a nice place to hang out with friends and get some decent drinks. My boyfriend said the beer he had was to his taste although it might be a little light for beer connoisseurs (which he isn’t).
On that note, great company, delicious food, an awesome shot and Smirnoff Ice made this birthday celebration a fun fun event. Like I said in my vlog, I can’t think of a better way to turn 29. 2015 has really been treating me extra well! 🙂
What do you think? Do you like beer and burgers? What sort do you prefer?
