Last night was no different.
The menu is extensive, and I always like to try something different. My goal in life is to eat every item on the menu once, and then start over again. My lovely bride is different, she can’t seem to tear herself away from The Perfect “Prickly” Pear — Prickly pear marinated chicken breast with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise
& melted provolone (Francy likes to substitute with the green chile mayonnaise).
Last night I had the culinary delight you see in the photo to your right. That would be the We Must Meat, I Ain‘t Lion sandwich. It is “Filet Mignon with gorgonzola cheese, chipotle mayonnaise & caramelized onions with lettuce & tomato”. For my side I chose the JalapeÃ±o & Cheddar Mashed Potato Pie.
It was a gastronomic delicacy fit for the royal family (I guaran-damn-tee you the Queen would go ape over this thing) . The steak was tender, flavorful and cubed into perfect bite size chunks of goodness. Just the right amount of gorgonzola, veggies that tasted like they were picked 10 minutes ago and the bread. Oh the bread. They make it there fresh. They may lace it with some highly addictive substance. It’s insane.
Service is always, without fail, spectacular. Food, spectacular. Heck, they even play good background music.
In addition to the regular menu, there is always a special. If you happen to go there when they are serving the Greanie Meanie, get it. Trust me. It is a 7 pepper rubbed pork tenderloin, red onions, roasted poblano chiles, and marinated in red wine, then grilled w/lettuce, tomato & chipotle mayo. I just saw on their Facebook page that I missed the “GM” by two days. I’m ready to put a bullet in my head. And step up my campaign to get that beast on the regular menu.
I’m hungry now. May just have to do a Flancer’s lunch”¦
Flancer’s is family owned and operated. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Flancer the morning a bunch of folks set up the 9/11 Healing Field in Tempe. Super nice guy that does a lot for the community. In addition to the Gilbert location, they also have a CafÃ© in Mesa.
Go. Eat. Enjoy. You will not be disappointed.
