Everything at TGIF seems to be flavored with this whiskey and I must wonder why. Although I personally have no problem with the liquor and if my pulled pork sandwich was any clue, the booze does add a nice mellow taste.
My entrée is described as follows:
JACK DANIEL'S PULLED PORK SANDWICH
Smoked pulled pork tossed with our signature barbecue sauce and basted with sweet-smoky Jack Daniel's sauce. Topped with grilled red onion and served Friday's Fries and an extra side of sauce for dipping.
I ate half of this sandwich and since I knew I would be getting dessert, I asked to have the other half of the sandwich wrapped to take home. I ate the other half the following day. If I were to grade this sandwich, at least in relation to other pulled pork sandwiches I've enjoyed, I'd give it a B+. A good grade to be sure. The sandwich would have received an A if only it had a bigger kick in terms of spiciness. As it was, the sandwich was packed with tender pork lightly covered with that Jack Daniel's sauce.
Husband is, I'm not making this up, the pickiest eater in the universe. He considers pizza one of the four food groups and frankly, over the years, the poor man has gotten so used to my own cooking that he seldom enjoys eating out. Which is not to say that I cook so well that no restaurant can match me. It's more that I've learned how he likes his food cooked and between yon reader and me, no self-respecting restaurant would cook anything like I do for husband to be consumed by the general public.
Which is why husband proclaimed the cheeseburger and chicken wings of his order to be "not so good". I simply do not know why the man bothers. I regularly make both of these items at home and as for the chicken wings I'll lay the truth right here, I've yet to taste any better than mine own handsomely prepared wings. The chicken wings at TGIF were spicy with a sauce that looked to consist mostly of liquefied cayenne pepper. If the wings were fried, as they should be, there was no crispiness of the skin. I suspect TGIF bakes the wings then covers them with a cayenne-spiked sauce.
