Tie Dye Grill
This week we traveled east to visit the Tie Dye Grill. The contingent was smaller than usual this week since @Heath and @Ash could not attend, despite the fact that they suggested the location. Also Lars is spreading the word Down Under so she could not make the trip. The crew was missing Sir Nick as well, due to unforeseen reasons.
Upon arriving to the restaurant on Shadeland Ave, Sarah and I were greeted by the owner. He pointed us to the rest of our group and we joined them at the table. For appetizers Wyatt "Flying Death" Buzzard ordered beef stew, which he enjoyed but as stuck comparing it to his home-made deliciousness. Beth Ann ordered some loaded fries, which we all delved into and were quite satisfied. A-Bomb ordered spicy garlic(?) wings which the three of us gentlemen shared and enjoyed.
As for the main event: Tuesdays are tenderloin days at the Tie Dye Grill, and as many of our loyal readers may have noticed, we always have at least one person who finds it necessary to sample a tenderloin. (Looking at you, Liggett girls). Well, sure enough 4 of the five eaters tonight sampled the tenderloin (with gravy), while the lone rebel, yours truly, went with a mac daddy chili cheese dog, mainly because like the dog, i am the mac daddy. The four tenderloiners went about attacking the massive sandwich in different ways. Aaron poured the gravy all over it and went to town, while the other three were more delicate in the nibbling. None of the four finished the beastly sandwich, but Wyatt did save room for his dessert. It was a delicious Heath Bar cake that we ordered in honor of our fallen comrade, Heath "Soft Shoe" Shanahan.
While the drive was a burden for most of us, the meal and atmosphere were enjoyable. The owner made himself readily available and was very conversational, and the place was packed with guests. If you are hungry on a Tuesday night, and have a hankering for a heaping tenderloin, the Tie Dye Grill is the place to go.
With our new grading scale, I would give the Tie Dye Grill a 3.2/4.0.
