Red Lobster - Oh How I Love Thee
Wow, that is how I am going to start this. I am so in love with Red Lobster. It is just one of those places where you are guaranteed an awesome meal. People that do not like this place are just haters and do not know what they are talking about.
The birth of this blog, that you have come to know and love, happened at a Red Lobster. I was with my co-workers (some of which are haters) and a Mediavest dude (not a hater). My bosses realized my deep love of chain restaurants and said wow Rordawg you should blog about it, it would be really funny and here I am today doing just that.
So let's start talking about the food and there is no better place to start than the amazing cheese biscuits. They are truly a culinary delight. There is no better bread item in the whole entire world. They are the perfect blend of cheese, garlic, and goodness. So yummy and so delicous, they actually melt in your mouth.
I also love the salad they serve you with your meals here. I guess it is not really the actual salad that I love, instead the honey mustard dressing. A very solid, very sweet honey mustard.
I pretty much always order the same main course here - I get fried shrimp and shrimp scampi with a baked potato. The shrimp aren't that big but they are good! The baked potato is also really good because they put salt on it. I like that they have a kind of menu where you can pick and chose combinations. You can have chicken and shrimp, cocounut shrimp, steak and lobster, etc. Whatever floats your boat really!!
What I also love about this place is the passion people have for it (me included). Those of us who really love it are very loyal about it. We know how good it is and we are proud of it. I mean I talk about it and people get excited and want to come with me to eat there. I know of no other restaurant like this. I might even be taking some more people here today (I hope so).
