Premise: A Fri afternoon in an unfamiliar city, ( as in Metairie not NOLA). I had been here once, (2yrs ago),( and didn't remember local landmarks). The MAIN reason I spent the night here, driving from PDX to TLH, ( go ahead and look THAT up), was to get the "meat pies" , (think pork empananas), because they were SO... GOOD!
Well after fighting the Garmin for 15 mins , I arrived to a wood structure that could've of been built in the 1890's or the 1930's, on the outside, and inside looks like the grandfather of the Cracker Barrel chain (though the flat screen TVs look TOTALLY out of place) inside .Apparently Fri Happy Hour is as popular here as back home.
Since it was 3:45PM, and wanting to beat rush hour , not having a big appitite,and NOT wanting to wake up hungry in the middle of the night in a hotel room, decided to get 2 appitizers to go. So I decided to have a beer (Ali Gator) from a choice of upper scale draft beers ,while I waited for the "meat pies" and "alilgator sausage" to cook. By the time I finished the beer the order was done.
So after a seeming crawl back to the hotel ( NOT the joint's fault). I checked out the food. The "meat pies" were fried to a golden brown . The insides were juicy, and the pies were accompanied by stone ground mustard for dipping. The sausage had both a ( I guess/ think ) a Chipole Moyo dipping sauce and ( I know) Stone Ground Mustard dipping sauce. The sausage was moist, not greasy, and had grill marks that made it NOT taste like chicken! Total cost (for 2 meals and a beer arond $21). Great!
