Still looking for the chili cheeseburger...

Jack Daniels BurgerA friend's Twitter post while I was thinking about chili cheeseburgers yesterday afternoon led me to join him and a couple of other folks (including Bill, the former Brown Road coworker of several of you) at [info]The Plantation for some food and a couple of pints.

In a very real sense, this is my neighbourhood bar now that Olivia is closed, though as long as Route 366 is, it's certainly not in walking distance. I'll just have to be careful with their buy-one-get-one-free pint nights. :-)

The place is a cool old house, opened as a bar/restaurant three or four years ago, and somehow even though people talk about it once in a while, this is the first time I've made it out there. It won't be the last. The burger was really good even though there was no chili for it, and I loved the "Wicked Wedges" appetizer we tried, potato wedges baked with wing sauce and melted cheddar and monterey jack cheeses.

Wednesday seems to be all-you-can-eat pasta night, judging by a board by the door, even though their web site doesn't mention that on their events page. Tempting to try that some time. (Maybe when I don't have to lose weight.) And they had plenty of wraps and paninis that weren't burgers, including a handful of vegetarian options.
