Somewhere along the way Cheyenne’s Sports Bar & Grill on Appleton Street right off College was added to our exclusive “Eat Here” list. There’s not a whole lot of bars that make it onto that list (there may be another list for those establishments…) so we figured we would give it a shot. Results were mixed.
Paper Thin Kettle Chips
The turkey club was just as you would expect it to be; a combo of sliced deli turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo served on toasted wheat bread. Standard sides included a choice of seasoned fries, homemade kettle chips, or a cup of sliced peaches. For $1.50 you could request sweet potato fries. A pickle spear was listed as optional equipment, but I’m not sure if it was included in the MSRP or not. It’s difficult to make a bad turkey club, so the sandwich was just fine. There was a good amount of turkey, thick bacon, fresh vegetables, and not too much mayo. The bread also stayed dry, which was a major plus. About the only bad turkey clubs I encounter out in the wild are the ones on un-toasted white bread that get soggy. Maybe I should stop buying my turkey clubs from the gas station.
Perhaps the highlight of lunch at Cheyenne’s were the paper thin homemade kettle chips. These things were so thin I could almost see through them. While there is something to be said for a too-thick kettle chip still a bit floppy with grease, I rather enjoyed seeing a pile of chips on the other end of thickness spectrum. They were also very un-salty, which was nice.
I doubt Cheyenne’s will make it on the “re-visit for lunch” list but all-in-all it was a decent enough lunch for $7.25 before tax, title, and license.
