Al and I had the blackened chicken salad. In all honesty, I didn’t see any black on my chicken, but it was a large and tasty salad with a slightly sweet dressing. It had warm chicken, lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, tomatoes, croutons, and Parmesan cheese. It was served in an edible taco shell.
Bob had the chicken salad with bacon, which was basically the same salad we had, but with the addition on bacon. He found it amusing that the first beer he had in Germany was a Sam Adams.
Joe had the barbecue ribs, which came with French fries, corn on the cob and coleslaw. He didn’t like the ribs--I’m not sure exactly why--but the rest of the meal was fine.
The atmosphere is similar to Hard Rock Café: loud music blaring, checkered tablecloths, and wooden tables. I am not going to try to convince you that this is great food; it was good food, but not great. It was our first night in Frankfurt, we were dead on our feet, and we weren’t up for any surprises. We saw the people around us being served what looked like some huge and delicious burgers. The meal for the two of us was 20 euros with the addition of my cup of coffee. Cheap by any standards!
