They Put The Horror In Horrorendous – This is the second time I have eaten at this supposedly trendy Bar/Restaurant meet market and I must say it is Horrible.
The first time I ordered the chicken alfredo and it came with the chicken way too grilled and half of it tasted like a chicken that had just taken a stroll through ground zero of a nuclear explosion.
Then the bread which was a roll was very hard, and when I asked for some garlic bread, the toast arrived with a stench greater than my 12 month old gym shoes...It was the butter and it smelled horrible, and the taste was like some kind of toxic waste had been spooned on it.
Today was no less memorable, as I write this I'm currently burping up the chipotle enchiladas that I had to force down since I was hoping to get home in time to see the hapless Texans get stomped by the NY Giants.
I had ordered an appetizer of the potato soup sans bacon and chives but with cheddar, and although the soup tasted pretty good except for the occasional skin that would get caught in my teeth, the cheddar cheese was very dry, and nearly ruined the flavor.
The enchiladas arrived and although it looked pretty nice, I immediately noticed that it had been left too long under the warmer, and part of the top of the enchiladas had turned into what tasted like 3 day old sun dried iguana.
The rest was just as forgettable, with the black beans having an "old" taste, and the rice being nearly flavorless. I didn't touch the cabbage concoction in some kind of "Big Mac" sauce.
Although the server was pretty good, and the inside looks like some high roller spent his "put it all on red 14" lucky fortune on the building, I would recommend passing on this joint except for possibly drinks and single mingle.
Please check my other reviews, as I'm sick of the below average fare being served by the "Hip" restaurants around town, and don't want you to suffer through the same insult to your pallet and your wallet.
By the way, a Joe7pack is just like a joe6pack, only with a bit better taste and more culture.
