Many of you may remember a while back when I posted an entry about our trip down to Milwaukee to the Comet Cafe. This is an eclectic diner/dive full of tattooed waitrers,waitresse, and bartenders. The restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-In's, and Dives. We ordered the Meatloaf Sandwich. I posted some pics of that on the entry.
Well, since it is Good Friday, Kevin was off and I only worked a half day, we took a drive to see our friend Carl at his bookstore. After our visit there we decided to hit the Comet for an early dinner. Happy Hour just began and Old Style was on special. Old Style? Who even knew the beer was still made and at a buck a bottle! BONUS!
For dinner we decided to split the "AJ's Compact Turkey Dinner" and the Homemade Chili Macaroni and Cheese. The Compact Turkey dinner consists of three tennis ball-sized, deep-fried beer-battered balls of roasted turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes all swimming in a pool of homemade gravy. They were delicous. Kevin even said they were better than the meatloaf sandwich that we had the first visit. I am still opting for the bacon and gravy covered meatloaf sandwich.
The Baked Chili Macaroni and Cheese was also VERY good. The serving came out in a soup bowl the size of a dinner plate. Ground beef chili with beans mixed in with macaroni and REAL Wisconsin cheddar cheese. What could be better!
Now, I know my family is saying all the grease, fat and gravy isn't good for you but at least this time we decided to split everything. We even brought half of the order of Mac and Cheese home because we were stuffed.
If you are ever in the Milwaukee area, we highly recommend a trip to the Comet. Where the atmosphere is eclectic and hip and the food is unbelievable.
