New menu! Yay! Like most chains, the menu needs an overhaul ever so often. Luckily, Kelsey's woke up and smelled the stale by introducing some new dishes. We started with the new 7 Layer Dip. The description was so mouthwatering, how could we resist?! When it arrived, it was covered in lettuce. Strike one. No matter how much lettuce you put on something, that doesn't hide the truth! 7 layers Of what? The very thin bottom layer of amazing spinach dip was completed overpowered by chili beef. The other layers were diced tomatoes, some sour cream, cheese, onions....and lettuce. It had so much potential, but the baked pita chips made up for it.
There were so many new items on the menu I wanted to try, but due to my AYCE sushi earlier that day, I wanted to keep it light. I checked out the dreaded cardboard menu. After grilling the server about if anything had flavour, I chose the Greek salad with grilled chicken. Pleasantly surprised! The salad wasn't missing any of its Greek goodness and there was lots of dressing. The chicken was lightly seasoned, but it was juicy and grilled to perfection.
My boyfriend, who will eat anything with meat and sauce, chose the Philly Cheese-steak sandwich. He had no complaints(or words for that matter) as he happily dipped his giant sandwich in Au Jus. By the end of the meal, we were both full and happy.
Can't go wrong with Kelsey's. I've gone to a few of their various franchises and they are very consistent. The atmosphere is quiet and it has a simple look. The walls are not cluttered with random crap, which I appreciate!
- Only because I want another stab at the new menu!
