DDD and Crabshack Experience
Monday, March 18, 2013
DH and I went on a date yesterday in Minneapolis and saw this neat passion play called "Kingdom Undone." Anyway, the hubby loves Triple D on Food network, so he found a "dive" where we could have lunch that was just a couple blocks from the theater.
The place is called "The Weinery" and while I was looking forward to trying it out, I wasn't expecting anything too amazing. We've tried other DDD places that weren't that impressive. This one was the same. The "atmosphere" was definitely dive-ish, but not gross or anything. The workers were nice but they were out of both of the things we originally ordered, so we adjusted to similar items. I got the "Drive-In Dog" and DH got the Italian combo with a brat instead of italian sausage. The food was fine, but nothing special. I think the stuff we wanted would've been a little better, but frankly I wouldn't bother to go back since it's not in an area we typically visit.
Since we kida struck out with lunch, we decided to eat out for supper and go to Joe's Crabshack which neither of us had ever been to but wanted to try. We shared an appetizer (the combo) and the little fried balls with jalepenos & seafood and the seafood dip were yummy but the rest was boring/bland. For our entree we shared the Arctic Steampot. That was even more disappointing mostly because the seafood didn't taste fresh at all. It was okay and I ate some of each kind..shrimp, lobster, crab as well as the sausage, corn and potato that came with it. My favorite: the potato. DH was less picky and finished everything off.
Well, now we know 2 places we can cross off the list of places we want to eat. Apparently I'm turning into a food snob and have high expectations even when I try not to. I'm beginning to see it as a good thing, though. If nothing tastes that good, I'm likely to eat less of it...that was definitely true yesterday. But don't tell my friends or no one will invite us over for dinner!
