Cowboy Cafe

The Cowboy Cafe in North Arlington is under new management. There are new folks running the kitchen and they are trying to upgrade the menu and kitchen hardware. Last night we sampled a crab cake apetizer with chipotle aioli and the cajun shrimp with a spicy cajun butter sauce over long grain rice. Both dishes were quite good. They also have added a chicken fried tenderloin, which we did not try. One of the owners said they are going to sample new items every week or so and roll out a new menu sometime in early 2008. I understand Jamaican jerk chicken wings are in the offing. The price point for the new items is around $10 or less so they certainly are affordable. It is a nice add for this neighborhood bar and joins what I have always considered the best bargain burgers around.
