12 OZ Sirloin + Mac And Cheese+ Potato
Holston's Kitchen, on the outside, looks so crisp and clean. The doors were yelling "Come In" every time I have driven passed the restaurant. I finally had a chance to go in and dine. What I found was a chilling surprise.......
Chilling in the fact that the cold air almost took my breath away. It was hot outside, and I guess they were overcompensating. I wasn't sure if I took a wrong turn at the meat cooler. The hostess stand was as cold as the air. There was a bit of confusion on the seating, which confused me because the place was empty. However despite my confused first impressions, I found the interior to be delightful... in a cold, dark kind of way.
The waitress, however, may have actually saved the total experience. She was quick, yet attentive. My drink was filled at least twice before my food arrived, and she probably checked on me a little too much. In my opinion, she needs a raise because she is this facilities best asset. And that's when my food had gotten lost.......
Yes that's right! My food was lost on my plate. My plate was so big that it swallowed all of the food on it. Now you may not see it on the picture because I use good angles, but the gap between all three foods is literally two inches. Now I am grateful my food wasn't touching, but I did not expect a canyon between my food. It made me feel like I didn't get enough. Remember you eat with your eyes before you ever eat with your mouth.
With all the space on my plate, I figured there was something missing. I was right. Its called flavor. The steak needed some marinade, or rub on it. It tasted a lot like steak from home. The mac and cheese was surprisingly tasty! The potato.... was a potato. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad meal. It just could have been so much better.
The Holton's experience may sound worse then it was. I really had a pretty good time. The waitress was awesome. I like the mac and cheese. The steak was cooked to my liking. For a chilly start, drinks in a flash, and a steak with potential, Holston's didn't get the cold shoulder with a picky 3.1 out of 5.
