i'm not one for chains, especially on vacation, but it was either this or the sizzler. we decided not to risk it.
and whaddiya know, it was a great dining experience! we did the $20 for an appetizer and 2 entrees, which is a ridiculously good deal for the amount and quality of food we got. our eyes being ever larger than our stomachs, we also ordered a salad.
the corn in the guac added some flavor you don't usually get. a nice twist on a simple dish that i eat often.
the salsa was pureed- not really my thing, but it was good.
the chips were greasy n kinda gross. we ate our leftover dips the next day with some wavy lays we had in the car.
cobb salad: a breath of fresh air after all the junk we'd been eating. mmmm...i want one now!
the ribs were just ok. with a jingle so catchy people still sing it a decade later, this should totally be their best dish. shame on them.
the grilled scrimp tacos on the other hand were spicy and delectible. i actually ate a leftover taco for breakfast. for breakfast! this from a girl who won't eat anything but breakfast food as the first meal of the day, even if she doesn't get up until 3 pm.
we each tried a margarita- she a "freshest," and me a pomegranate. not bad, but a tad overpriced.
service: can't complain. friendly, quick but not rushed, and correct.
so the moral of the story is, don't bring a date to barstow. but if you must dine out while you're there, chili's is where it's at.
