Out and About: Chuy’s 2016 Green Chile Fest Menu is Here and It’s Delicious! #chuysgreenchilefest

Chuy's Green Chile Fest - Queso Fundido

I love all things spicy, so when Chuy’s invited me to check out this year’s Green Chile Fest menu, of course I said, “Yes!”

The fest celebrates the green chile harvest in Hatch, New Mexico. Every year Chuy’s contracts with family farmers to grow over 2 million pounds of the very best green chiles on the planet just for them.

Chuy’s then creates a special limited time menu of made-from scratch dishes to serve for three weeks during the heat of the harvest. Which happens to be right now.

Out and About: Tijuana Flats Offers Some of the Best Tex-Mex in Town

I am a big fan of Tijuana Flats, but most of my visits center around their great Taco Tuesday promotion (2 huge tacos of your choice of ground beef or chicken, plus chips and a drink for $5.49). But recently I attended a Central Florida Lady Bloggers event where I got to try some of their other yummy menu items.

First a little history on the brand. It was formed in 1995 by a UCF student named Brian Wheeler, with the first location in Winter Park. So this is a local brand. In the course of the twenty years since that first store, Tijuana Flats has grown to 100 restaurants in six states. Each location is also decorated differently with local artist drawn murals and ceiling decor.
