When dad is in charge

On Friday, March 8, I was in charge of making dinner, which meant we were going out to eat somewhere. Since we live in Fountain, almost centrally located in Fillmore County, we usually just spin the dial and see where it takes us.

On this evening, Chatfield was on our compass, and we had not yet been to the JAC’s Bar and Grill. We had eaten there under previous ownership, but we hadn’t eaten at the newly owned establishment.

So, we packed the kids up in the proverbial mini-van and made our way to the big city to the North.

Right when we walked in the front door, I saw a whole bunch of familiar faces. There was Matt Bradt from Chatfield, Cory Mulhern from Fountain, along with many other friends and neighbors from Fountain and Chatfield.

When we entered the dining area, there was only one table left, because the restaurant was a crowded house. Obviously, a good sign!

People always want to eat at a place where there are lots of cars parked out in front of the establishment, and JAC’s Bar and Grill definitely attracts a crowd.

Everybody at our table ordered their meal from the very helpful waitress, and while we waited for the food to arrive our children Olivia and Landon checked out the video games in a room near the dining area.

I couldn’t recall what my wife ordered, but I am pretty sure it was healthy. She’s always making me feel guilty, but she says I have a high metabolism -- so I think that means it’s OK to eat whatever I want, right?

I ordered the Monkey Burger, which I had never heard of before. Don’t worry, no monkeys were harmed in the making of this burger. It was actually a beef patty. But, the name of the burger prompted my decision. I love clever food. This burger had a spicy barbecue sauce which gives it the name Monkey Burger. Along with this awesome Monkey Burger, the basket I ordered came with a side of delicious fries.

Meanwhile, Olivia ordered a good old-fashioned hamburger (hold the cheese, always), and a side of fries. And, Landon ordered batter-fried corn dogs. They appeared to be baby corn dogs, but I do have a bigger appetite than my six-year-old son.

My meal was wonderful, and so were my son’s corn dogs. Apparently, his appetite couldn’t keep pace with the food set before him. So, I stepped in, as always do, and I made sure Landon was a member .....
