SGV Adventures: Twoheys

This week I embarked on a new chapter in my life. I'm going back to school and that landed me at Cal State L.A.! Go Golden Eagles!!

Aside from actually having a King Taco on Campus, the local is perfect for all sorts of new chowing adventures... that is once I orient myself...

Case in point, last night, when I started on my first adventure seeing Dumpling Master! But I took a wrong turn on Atlantic from Valley and headed into Alhambra instead. Once I realized my goof, I was right by Twoheys. Hmmm... I love dumplings, but I love Onion rings MUCH more...

Twoheys always comes up when ever there is a post about Onion rings. I imagined them to be a kinda like a Hat type place. Super casual restaurant. Instead it was more like a Dennys. I walked in and placed my order, their famous stinko burger with a side of onion rings (At an extra charge) to go. No drinks, nothing special and it came out to almost $10.00! Eck!

Still, when I was given two large foam containers in a bag to take home, I began to feel not so gyped. I couldn't resist, opened up the first container which contained a good side mound of thick cut onion rings. I picked one up and tasted it...

And although it had a great crunch from a thin batter, the batter itself had NO flavor. Bleh... Further, the super thick onion was like only half way done. So instead of eating scruptious onion rings, it was like eating half fried greasy onions. :/

When I got home, I opened up the box with my burger. Expecting something like what I had at the counter recently in size, I was SHOCKED to instead find something a little bigger than McDonalds 99 cent hamburger! It even looked like said burger with a thin flat fried patty and smooth spongy roll! Inside a few insitutional pickle slices and an raw onion slice. Absolutely no condiments! Gyped doesn't even BEGIN to describe what I felt.

The grand irony of it all though came when I tried the fries that came with the burger. They actually were EXCELLENT. Thick cut, prefectly fried, GREAT flavor. So actually, they made up most of my dinner last night...

SO... I learned my lesson, when I get on Valley from school make a RIGHT on Atlantic... next week its' Dumpling Master for sure... And if you ever find yourself by Twoheys... Hey, that's not a bad thing, there's an In and Out right in front of it!!
