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).

I would advise you to start going to some better chains because red lobster is below average

Red Lobster is not fresh. If you want seafood than I advise you to go to legal seafoods

Red Lobster is amazing, and fresh and they have a cool drink called a Lobsterita that comes with lobster mardi gras beads

The proper name of this place should be Dead Lobster, because not only did I see a dead lobster floating belly up in the tank in Times Square, but also because our entire team at work almost died after we ate there. I felt sick for hours afterwards. I guess I'm just a Hater.

You're all haters. You can't take any restaurants near Times Square seriously. Red Lobster is a great chain.

Rori, great blog. You've revitalized my love affair with chain restaurants. I look forward to the day when your blog becomes the NY Post Food & Wine channel.

Gary when that day comes I will make sure to give Coke some free ad space.

I challened you all to a blind taste test of Legal Seafood and Red Lobster

Hands down you will enjoy Red Lobster better...it has a bad rep but let me tell you it rocks..no matter what you get there even if its grilled chicken ( like i and the rest of my guests did at my 6th grade birthday party)

1) the bread is awesome ( yea awesome enough to shove some in your purse)

2) The are so generous I mean you get salad with your mean and you get to choose your side..and rori is right nothing better than a baked potato with salt on it

3) Excluding manhattan its pretty reasonably priced

4) There is just so much to choose from and they are so accomodating if you want to create your own meal

And yes Jordan you may not feel so well after but its probably because you body isn't used to the delicious goodness Red Lobster brings ( or maybe the mass quantities of grease)

All I have to say is that I'm a def. hater. This place blows. The biscuits are good, yeah, but anything is good when its smothered in buttery goodness and then covered in cheese and garlic. Shit would taste good if prepared that way. The seafood is edible when you are young and can only eat fish when its deep-fried, covered in coconut, or soaked in a lemon-butter sauce. Though I will say its prob. a lot better than Bubba Gump.

Rori said...

Cousin, I don't actually think shit would taste good with butter and garlic.
And you know what else, I am young so I do like my seafood fried with lots of sauce, so what.
