We went to Park City for our 17th wedding anniversary! And, after checking into our hotel – we ventured to the Historic Main Street for lunch. Off the back side of Main Street is the China Bridge parking plaza – and it’s fast, free and easy to park here and walk the half block to main street. This is a real nice addition to Park City.
We venture to main street, and there are several eateries that have built extensions to their eateries on the road. This allows patrons to dine outside – and the establishment has more tables to turn – and thus more profit. Flannigan’s is just one of those establishments.
We chose to dine inside – and glad we did. The down side was there were no signs stating “please wait to be seated” or which would have been helpful to myself and many other patrons “please sit yourself”. Finally – the owner clad in his Ireland polo – rugby shirt came and shook our hands and in his best Irish accent invited us to seat ourselves – and if we were interested, “Germany is up one in the Euro Cup”. I thought to myself – “Oh, heck – I am going to have to endure soccer while I eat.”
We seated ourselves with a couple of the menus and were greeted by the waitress. This waitress was dressed in all black, as were most of the other bar staff – what was unique was the oddity of black shirt, black daisy dukes and then black boots. This struck me as an odd fashion choice – however, my wife indicated that it wasn’t so odd. So, now I have been informed.
We review the menu and we select our orders – and that is when the game of GER vs GRE took off. All of a sudden Greece scored, and apparently all the patrons were German fans started yelling, and hollering. I believe they were a little loaded – and every time they had a momentum change in the game – there was another drink. I proceeded to want to have the game go on so I could see what these patrons would continue to do.
By the second Germany goal the first of our order had arrived.
These potatoes were bathed in a traditional wings hot sauce. However, they were deep fried before hand – and as a result the potatoes were creamy soft in the middle – but they had a slight crispy skin to them and were covered in blue cheese. This is a real surprise dish. If you like bar food, this is a winner winner.
This is what I could equate to at ordering as a Crown Burger. However, it was covered in corned beef rather than pastrami. It was very juicy and very filling. The gravy on the french fries was fantastic – as they fries had a crispy breading on them that allowed the gravy to cling to them.
Bangers and Champ
This was a bar – and I love bar food. We don’t drink – by choice. This establishments service didn’t diminish when we ordered a root beer and a coke. It had a warmness to it – the staff were very kind and service oriented. I would come back here in a minute.
