The new menu features an Angus 1/3-pound chili cheeseburger (or skip the chili and just go for the cheeseburger) topped with a fried onion ring, a yummy fried green tomato sandwich with jicama-mango slaw (an insider fave), crispy chicken sandwich with honey-mustard sauce and turkey and provolone on a multi-grain roll with basil mayo and a crisp slaw on the side.
We’re already partial to Big Al’s chicken salad with smoked chicken, lettuce, watermelon, candied pecans, dried cherries, pickled red onion and honey-lime vinaigrette (make it vegetarian and skip the chicken). Make any meal a combo with sweet potato fries or fruit.
Pastry chefs really had fun with the tart-sweet “Hunny Lemon Cupcakes” (“something to bee-hold,” we’re told, topped with an edible chocolate bee). Or go for the mini-blueberry pie.
For kids, burgers with sweet potato fries or fruit; chicken breast nuggets with fruit; a “power pack” with string cheese, nonfat yogurt, sliced apples and whole-grain “fish” crackers; and mac and cheese.
