Brian and I broke our vow of not eating out (again) on Tuesday night so that we could watch Charles Withers perform on the patio at Granite City East.
We decided to walk to the restaurant, which was great in theory, but not so much in execution. It was really hot! We were both sweaty by the time we got to the restaurant. Not from the long walk (because our place is really close to the restaurant) but from the heat. Wow!
When we break our diet, we pretty much go all out. LOL.
Brian liked his burrito, but couldn’t finish it.
I usually get the Mediterranean chicken because I’m lame.
Misty got the salmon. It looked really yummy. I wish I would have gotten it. JW says that the BBQ chicken flatbread pizza is really good there. I guess we will have to try it next time.
Speaking of next time, Charles Withers will be back at GC East again on August 9. You all should go check him out. He’s awesome!
I hadn’t been to Artichoke in several years, but I went a couple of weeks ago. It was Virginia Williams who got me to go. I’m following her to gigs all around town. Does that mean I’m a groupie? LOL.
The Artichoke has great sandwiches, by the way. I’m glad that we went. We’ll probably go again now that we’ve rediscovered it.
Guess who joined us for dinner last night at the Port of Wichita?
The food at the Port was actually fantastic as bar food goes. I’m used to bar food that is barely tolerable. It was refreshing to be proved wrong. The food at the Port was good enough that I’d probably go there for dinner (or lunch) some other day, even when The Fabulous Fleshtones aren’t playing.
Brian and Chad both thought the onion rings were really good.
The fried veggies were delicious. I couldn’t stop eating the fried broccoli. Of course, you can’t really go wrong with fried food. Everything seems to be better deep fried. LOL.
I felt so guilty for having all of that fried food that I decided to order a grilled chicken salad with the fat-free raspberry vinaigrette dressing for my dinner. It was delicious!
Brian had the French dip. He said the sandwich was okay and the fries were a little soggy rather than crispy. Although, they were fresh-cut and not frozen fries. So the Port at least gets points for that.
Chad had the chicken fried steak, which was huge. I think it could have fed three people. Actually, Chad ended up taking most of it home. The only downside to the chicken fried steak was that it was a tad on the salty side (according to Chad). It probably would have been just right for me because I have a tendency to think most dishes have no flavor or not enough flavor. Brian thinks it was the brown gravy that made it too salty. We both prefer cream gravy. I’ll have to try it next time and report back to you guys.
Needless to say, we’ll be returning to the Port for some more yummy bar food. If you love deep fried veggies, this is definitely the place for it. LOL.
P.S. Live music on weekends is a bonus. Triple bonus when it’s The Fabulous Fleshtones.
