Dinner for 2 on $33Posted: January 15, 2011
To celebrate my first payday, The Coach and I drove to Tampa last night to meet up with a few friends for dinner at Cheddar’s. Source
The Coach had been there before, but it was my first time. I was told to expect a cross between Ruby Tuesday’s and Applebee’s, but across the span of the evening, I decided that it handily trumped both!
The guys did some WORK on a ridiculous pile of onion rings, while Rachel and I took the edamame route.
Sadly, when you entrust a man to take photographs, you should know that strange, unpronounceable green vegetables < steaming pyramid of fried food. Unsurprisingly, said pyramid was completely obliterated within four minutes. I’m now convinced that men don’t chew, they inhale.
Unsurprisingly, there weren’t a ton of vegetarian options (salad and a portabella sandwich were the other two contenders), but I wound up with vegetable alfredo, light on the sauce. Incidentally, left-overs made a reappearance this morning for breakfast!
I was absolutely floored to see a monster cookie on the menu! All this time, I thought my brilliant college self was responsible for covering an entire sheet of cookie dough in ice cream. Turns out all these years I’d been plagiarizing!
$3 a pop. Yeah, baby.
The total shocker? Four drinks, an appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert totaled up to $33 and change. At first I thought it had to be a mistake, but it definitely wasn’t! The prices were just that spot-on. We’ll certainly be going back 😉
What restaurant do you think has the best prices? What’s the most you’ve ever paid for one meal?
