Was excited to see that Tahoe Joe's was participating in the West County Restaurant week. A program featuring several restaurants in the area with a fixed price menu consisting of an appetizer, main course and dessert.
Had the shrimp appetizer. It was huge and hard to eat . "Hand coated tempura style shrimp tossed with wonton strips and peanuts". The appetizer was really filling thank goodness because I didn't eat the main course. "Choice cut sirloin, cooked to your specification" and served with Mountain Mashers and Blue Lake Green Beans. I ordered it medium rare. It came out medium. I don't understand how a steak could look medium to medium rare inside but be dry, tough and tasteless. Gave it to hubby who likes his steak well done. The huge chunks of pepper on the green beans made eat bit an adventure. Would this mouthful bite me back? The potatoes should have been washed before they were cooked. First bite was full of grit.
Hubby had the salmon. He likes his fish well done but it was raw in the center. The baked potato was HUGE and the server brought out a condiment server with sour cream, butter, bacon bits and cheese for you to select what you want on the potato.
Now on to dessert. The Ski Jump Chocolate cake was huge enough to feed 4 sugar craving teens. It was most likely the highlight of the meal.
