Another visit to Samshburger.
Smashfries ($1.99) / Fresh Mex Grilled Chicken Sandwich ($6.99)
Dr. P as usual got his favorite Fresh Mex Grilled Chicken Sandwich. This time he paired it with Smashfries. I like the rosemary and garlic on the fries, but it’s a bit too oily.

I bought a Jack Shrimp Travelzoo deal. We’ve been to Jack Shrimp quite a few times. I remember the first time we thought the food was great. Then it seems like every time we went back, the food became less good. Since the Travelzoo discount was a great bargain, we decided to give Jack Shrimp another try.
Hot Gulf Crab Dip ($9.00)
Lump crab, select cheeses, spices, lemon, with creole french bread.
Every time we go there, we always get the Hot Gulf Crab Dip for appetizer. The appetizer is great, but heavy. It’s rich, creamy, and full of crab. Usually after eating half of it, we think it’s a bit too much. I think maybe this is meant for 4 people to share, then it would be perfect.
