|I wanted to take advantage of all the birthday deals, and one of them was for a free dessert at Jack Astor's. Since Jack Astor's got rid of my favourite apple pie dessert (so sad), I have yet to try their new dessert menu. So I thought this was a good opportunity to do so. We added a caesar salad to our entrées for $2.77: crisp romaine lettuce tossed in creamy garlic dressing topped with grated Parmesan Romano cheese. They were pretty generous with the bacon bits.|
Jack’s signature chicken fingers are supposedly never frozen- chicken tenders, marinated, seasoned and breaded in-house to order. They were served with fries and dipping sauce. I actually thought that these chicken fingers were pretty good and tasted fresh. Of course, it's hard to mess up with chicken fingers, as I generally find the frozen ones enjoyable as well. The breading wasn't too thick and the meat was tender and juicy.
|I was actually really disappointed with their new dessert menu. There were only four choices. In the end, I opted for New york vanilla cheesecake, described as a deliciously rich and smooth cheesecake with a graham cracker crust, served with seasoning topping. The cheesecake was decent, but definitely not the best that I've had. I wished that the texture was creamier, and slightly softer. But I won't complain since it was free! However, I wouldn't come back here for desserts.|
