Since the demise of The Stables, best value and flavor and strong drinks, and the Mason Jar a solid offering, I’ve been craving a prime rib that doesn’t break the bank, see Laurenzo’s. Enter Salt Grass I-10 and Campbell.
Armed with a gift card from work we decided on Saturday afternoon. A call ahead confirmed availability and lack of a waiting list Mother’s Day eve.
The Salt Grass experience. I ordered the 20 ounce rare/medium rare, no problem. Entrée time, we hadn’t even finished the apps, waiter Kam, a good server, says all they have is medium and up, nooo!
He suggests a ribeye which I’ve had before and was not impressed. They presented me with a big medium hunk which looked good. I go for it and it was delicious. Plenty of au jus kept it well, juicy. I say the redder the better but I was satisfied.
The Wifecita had a double pork chop grilled medium and it was delicious. She also had a baked potato soup suggested by her work wife which was just as good
Overall a good experience. The only negatives the mains arrived too quickly and the sales pitch on the Landry’s value cards, two visits by the waiter and one by a manager.
I’m sure Laurenzo’s has better cow but at ~50/16 oz. v ~30/20 oz. I’ll stay with Salt Grass unless someone wants to treat.
Anybody have any other ideas?
