Bennies & Brunch @ Jethro's Fine Grub

Brunches with Andy never seem to work out as planned.  Usually, on our escapades to weekend brunch, we already plan a bit more conservatively knowing that we would probably be checking into #604lateriser on Saturdays and Sundays.  On this particular day, I woke up 30 minutes after our planned meeting time, but fortunately, Andy didn't wake up that much earlier than me.  What can I say, that's what happens when one does accounting until 3am on a Saturday night.



We went on with our plans to go to Jethro's Fine Grub though, since he was craving a good benny.  I've also heard much about it faster it appeared on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  We arrived around 1:40pm, thankfully and there was no line.  After a few minutes though, people started accumulating.  We ended up waiting for around 20 minutes.


With several choices presented to him, Andy settled in the salmon benedict ($12).  The English muffin was sadly not toasted, and the poached eggs were a bit overcooked and didn't have runny yolks.  He thought the smoked salmon was a bit too overpowering in taste and couldn't really taste the Hollandaise.



Being a healthy child, I ordered the chicken fried steak ($12) because the pancakes looked way to intimidating for one person to finish.  Served with hashbrowns, two eggs, two slices of toast, the chicken? beefsteak with country gravy was actually too much to finish as well.  I thoroughly enjoyed the sauce, and it reminded me of the sandwich from The Brasserie.  The meat was nicely fried, but the meat was a tiny bit tough.  Negligible, though.  The hashbrowns were slightly bland, but alright with a handsome amount of ketchup.

Jethro's wasn't mind-blowingly good for me, but then again, I didn't try any of the dishes featured on Triple D.  Still decent though, and definitely on the list to go revisit for me.  Conclusion: Janice ate a lot. More so than Andy.
