Toby Kieth's I Love This Bar & Grill

Last week I made it down to Toby Kieth's I Love This Bar & Grill to see a friend of mine play a little country music...The Ryan Broshear Band truly rocked the house! Google him, his music is really good and as I'm not usually a huge fan of country music, I do like their stuff.  The atmosphere at this place is great, the waitresses in their Daisy Dukes and cut off shirts I thought added to the country ambiance and the beer in Mason jars is also nice touch.  As you know I am a true foodie so you know I had to see what they had to offer.  I was pleasantly surprised.
On top here we have the mac & cheese wedges which were my favorite thing by far... However I wish they had something a little more creative to dip it in, Ranch dressing just doesn't really cut it in my book.  On bottom is Toby’s Platter consisting of nachos, wings, jalapeno poppers, deep fried zucchini, mozzarella sticks & macaroni & cheese wedges,  served with bleu cheese, ranch & marinara sauce. All in all it was good,  especially the mac & cheese wedges and the jalapeno poppers.  The wings were a little too greasy but they helped to absorb the excess beer that I had consumed that evening.

Pictured above is the TK Smokehouse Nachos which is composed of red, white and blue tortilla chips with melted jack and cheddar cheese, Southwest chile chicken sauce, black beans, sour cream, guacamole and salsa, served with your choice of house smoked chicken, BBQ beef or pulled pork. The people I was with opted for the chicken. I only tried a few bites of this and it was pretty good, most of the chips stayed crunchy which is key for me because I hate to eat nachos with a fork.

In conclusion I would say that the food here is OK.  However I did only try a few things which mostly seemed like typical bar food, nothing special or unique.  With its location in mind (the Banks) i would say that I will be returning for a beer or 4.  As for an eating destination however I would say, if you're gonna make the trip downtown there are many better options.

If anyone has some food from here which blows their minds, please comment and let me know, I'm always on the lookout for exceptionally good food.   With that being said as a place for some drinks, dancing, and appetizers TK's is definitely a spot to consider.
