Long John Silver's/A&W love

Covert Ops | Sep 19, 2006 08:07 PM

So I've been looking at these LJS combo commercials, and just thinking about them made me feel greasy. But we drove past one the other day and DH just HAD to stop, so I resigned myself that maybe I'd find something on the A&W side.

Instead, I got popcorn shrimp and DEVOURED them. They were actually pretty excellent! And the hush puppies, while they could be a bit more crispy, had excellent flavor, not too sweet.

Best of all: a frosted mug for my rootbeer. But where is the rootbeer? Dont' see it with the other sodas. . .oh, HERE it is, on tap! And ice cold! How wonderful.

Our particular location (South Daytona, Fla.) was also actually very nice inside, geometric nautical patterns and very clean. Fries were limp but tasty nonetheless. Lots of food for NOT a lot of money. Seems we have a new fast food alternative!

(BTW, DH loved his fried fish, but it still looked too greasy for me, so I passed. But gimme those shrimp!)
