Crab legs that is. I could probably make myself sick off crab legs, but that would be financial irresponsible. Every once in a while, I get a craving for crab legs, and I’ve had one for about a month. Keyword: “had”.
Red Lobster will never be an amazing seafood restaurant. It’s a chain, and what matters with chain restaurants is consistently good food and service. Luckily for me, good is what I aim for, but great is what I got. The craving may have something to do with that.
To start, I ordered the new Rogue Wave drink. It’s website description is as follows: “We pour the perfect amounts of Sauza Gold Tequila, Blue Curaçao, and our house margarita mix into this special edition glass, then add a splash of ginger ale. It’s safe to say this process brings out the best in every flavor.” I don’t deny any claim made in that statement.
With my meal, I chose the Caesar salad. Again, as a chain, there main goal is consistentcy, and they nailed it. This was a perfectly good salad. Cheddar Bay Biscuits are an amazing pairing, if I do say so myself (and I do say so).
One and a half pounds of snow crab legs, the wait was worth it. I have crab legs quite infrequently, so it takes me a leg or two before I remember my method of eating these things. I went from awkwardly cracking and peeling to snapping them in two and gingerly removing them whole like a good boy.
The legs are complimented with a grilled zucchini and squash dish as well as a premium side of grilled Parmesan corn. Both were tasty and satisfying as side dishes. Also, I should mention the dipping butter was pretty awesome with the crab legs.
After it was all said and done, my craving for blood…err, crab legs had been satisfied and then some. With the purchase of the Rogue Wave, you get to keep the glass, so there’s also that. Meal total cost: $41.10. Like I said, I could make myself sick on crab legs, but my wallet appreciates that I don’t. Even still, I’m perfectly happy paying the price for appeasing the inner crave goblin.
