|Salt and Vinegar Popcorn|
|Red Neck Poppers|
Instead of bringing the traditional bread and butter Holsteins serves salt and vinegar popcorn, which our table couldn't get enough of. Our friend Andrew, bringing up the $5 milkshake from Pulp Fiction, ordered one of the $8 chocolate milkshakes from Holsteins vast list of shakes. We all tried the shake and it was tasty, but not anything special. Then again it was only a chocolate shake... I regret not getting one of the bam-boozeled shakes they serve, which are even pricier but, contain alcohol and unique ingredient combinations.
Steve and I got the red neck poppers for our appetizer, which were little fried balls of shredded roasted pork, smoked bacon and cheese with bbq sauce for dipping. I thought they were divine, but maybe I'm turning into a red neck! Several of us ordered the Gold Standard- "DRY AGED BEEF SIRLOIN BURGER W/ SMOKED BACON, AGED GOAT CHEDDAR CHEESE, TOMATO CONFIT, BABY ARUGULA & GARLIC-CHIVE AIOLI" which was outstanding and prepared exactly how we requested: medium-rare. And for desert... are you kidding me?! We left fat and happy with no room left for even a single bite, say less desert.
