Bestie and I were making our way to a show, so we stopped at Kilroy’s for a quick dinner. I had dined here before with hubs and wasn’t overly impressed, but thought another go was in order. It was packed but we were lucky enough to find a seat. Unfortunately, our server didn’t find us for quite a while. Though frustrating, it helped me decide what I really wanted for dinner and allowed time to review the massive list of Long Island iced tea pitchers they offer as drinks.
We decided to share a small order of their breadsticks because we both remembered how delicious they were last time we had them. I really enjoy these breadsticks, stuffed with mozzarella and pepperoni. The flavors are exactly what I look for in a stuffed breadstick. The dough is tender and stretches perfectly with the cheese, but has the perfectly crisp outer layer to munch into. The pepperoni is flavorful, a perfect accompaniment to the nacho cheese (which is standard) and marinara (same thing, standard).
For dinner, I had the fish and chips. Nothing but disappointment here, I have to admit, the worst fish and chips I’ve had. The breading was horrible, thick and overwhelming. The fish was non-existent within it. I tried to peel away the breading only to find a feeble piece of overcooked fish. When the server cleared my plate, it looked like I hadn’t even touched it because the breading was still intact with just the fish removed. To make the experience even more appalling, the server didn’t ask how I ‘enjoyed’ dinner. She just cleared the plates and disappeared again without concern.
Service was slow and I left completely dissatisfied. If I return, I will only be ordering appetizers and drinks at the bar. I should have stuck to my original plan and just concentrated on an appetizer for dinner.
