Tanner’s Grill & Bar [Chicken Fajitas]
Located in Kimberly, this place is easy to forget about. Why? Well, it is off the beaten path (by beaten path, I mean not directly off of CE or Main Street in Kimberly). Tanner’s Grill & Bar is a local favorite throughout the year and it is especially a hot spot in the summer, as it is one of the only bars with a pool and indoor volleyball courts. Having only been there for drinks, Food In The Fox decided to give it a shot for lunch this week.
Free (Delicious) Popcorn
First off, they had complementary popcorn at 11:30 AM. They scored some big points with me from the get go with that. The popcorn was salty, buttery and altogether unhealthy (but delicious). Anyways, the place was pretty busy at lunchtime. It was filled with blue collar and white collar people all of whom were mostly enjoying N/A beverages and snacking on popcorn while waiting for their food. Tuesday was Mexican day and they had a few really tempting specials. One of them was a 2 pound burrito for $8. Another was chicken fajitas for $8. Fajitas sounded too good to pass up.
Quick Service & Greasy Fajitas
The food didn’t take long to prepare and was on the table shortly after I managed to down a small bowl (or two) of popcorn. There was a large bowl filled with tomatoes, lettuce and cheddar cheese, a plate heaping with chicken, peppers and onions and a side of tortillas, sour cream and salsa. It was quite a large spread of food. The chicken and vegetable mix was cooked in a lot of oil and was a bit greasier than I would have liked. The vegetables were somewhat soggy and lacked flavor, as they tasted mostly of oil. The chicken was also a bit oily, but had more flavor than the vegetables. The fixings’ were average and after 2 fajitas, I was full (thanks mostly to the popcorn). The overall meal was average at best.
I doubt I would order the fajitas again, but I would definitely go back to Tanner’s for drinks and popcorn, as it is a fun atmosphere.
