I will admit that I am a snobby restaurant diner. Typically, cheesy gimmicks will not work for me. Neither does a $2.99 grand slam breakfast. And that’s why it is ironic that I ended up dining at Dick’s Last Resort in San Antonio, Texas with fried alligator. Truly the last resort.
I will admit that I was lured in by the offerings of eating crispy alligator and wearing nasty paper hats. It was bucket list worthy. Probably.
The menu was housed in a tin can and I immediately grabbed it, eager to find out what I would be wasting my cash on.
Something fried, battered or slathered?
The waiter came over and spewed out a few of his best insults, that’s their shtick. I insulted back and placed my high in calorie, filled with protein order. Crispy alligator bites ($6.99) and a chicky caesar salad ($8.99). They had fry’d pickles too, but I had gotten my fix earlier at Esquire Tavern.
This was the flip-side of my 5-hour, 5-star meal at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Tahoe.
What’s the cheesiest restaurant you have ever been to? Have you eaten alligator before?
