My typical Friday includes lunch with my Laridian associates. Today’s choice was Chili’s.
Yes, I know that I’ve previously reviewed Chili’s, so technically this is a repeat. Here’s how it happened.
My Laridian friends have been very accommodating, trying to avoid repeat visits. Our plan today was to go to the Fajitas Factory, where I was planning to enjoy a giant plate of nachos. However, while discussing this choice via email, we learned that the Fajitas Factory had closed, and been replaced by something new. Not being sure what the new restaurant was, we never-the-less opted to give it a try. You see, we’re an adventuresome bunch.
The new restaurant is called “Ten Sixty” — a name (apparently) derived from the street number, 1060A. However, though we cracked the secret of its name, we’re still in the dark about all other aspects of this new restaurant. You see, it doesn’t open until 3:00.
Standing in the lot of Ten Sixty, stomachs growling, the pressure was on to choose a new restaurant. (You see, while we might be adventuresome, we are not necessarily decisive.) We came up with Chili’s. Only when on the way to Chili’s did I think of a better (and unreviewed) choice: the Taj Mahal. That will have to wait for another day.
With that somewhat rambling introduction behind us, I can now let you know that today I was tempted by both the Citris Fire Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas and also the Southwest Cedar Plank Tilapia. (I wasn’t the only one tempted by those choices, as two of my associates chose them.) However, I chose and enjoyed the Chicken Club Tacos. These soft-shell tacos included chicken, bacon, the customary lettuce, tomato, and cheese, and a ranch dressing. It was really a very tasty combination.
Our meal began with the Southwestern Egg Rolls — a must-have, in my opinion. The only problem with this appetizer is deciding whether to order one, or two!
