There’s something about food that has this incredible power of bonding people together. Consider ordering plates to share the connection. KELSEYS Original Roadhouse on Clifton Hill has an undeniably date-friendly atmosphere, with extra special live music entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. During the warmer weather months, KELSEYS has live music seven days a week outside on the patio. This restaurant chain is home to burly burgers and wings done 8-ways so you could say its na-cho average meal out! Look through this list of our recommendations for meals fit to feed one another to make your next dinner or lunch date something to remember.
Appetizers Made For Sharing
Get your bellies warmed and ready for a wonderful meal with a bit of a teaser. An appetizer to stimulate the belly might just also get the conversation going and give you both an opportunity to be extra cute and couply.
Salt and Vinny Shrimp
Practice your aim and toss a shrimp your date’s way! Ten large shrimps that are hand battered in tempura, with salt and vinegar chips and fried to perfection. Served with a creamy sweet and spicy thai chili sauce.
Flat Pan Nachos
Why not opt for the giant Flat Pan Nachos starter and stay a while? This huge platter of crispy and salted tortilla chips are absolutely covered with a blend of three kinds of cheese and an assortment of fresh veggies like peppers and onions. Right in the center of the masterpiece are large dollops of creamy sour cream and spicy salsa. Add some fresh guacamole or half a pound of beef chili. If the whole pan seems a little intimidating for the two of you, order the Half Pan Nachos instead.
Cheese and Bacon Potato Skins
We loved potato skins just as much as the next guy, but then we tried it with bacon and cheese and everything changed. We love it even more now! Thick cut and perfectly seasoned potato wedges that are decked out with double smoked bacon and a three cheese blend with green onions with a side of sour cream is exactly what you and your date need… whether you knew it or not.
Meals To Share
Ask your server for a few extra sharing plates and create your own buffet-style meal by ordering multiple menu items. Here, we share a sample of some of their incredible chicken dishes!
Chicken Fried Chicken
KELSEYS Clifton Hill breads their chicken breast in house and then smothers it in a top-secret Roadhouse Chicken gravy. Ask your date to choose from a list of sides that perfectly crisped french fries or creamy mashed potatoes to enjoy with a side of freshly steamed veggies.
Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wrap
This wrap is cut in two and made for sharing! KELSEYS put their famous chicken fingers tossed in wing sauce into a warm tortilla cocoon. Stuffed with fresh veggies and crisp lettuce and Parmesan cheese, plus of course, you and your date’s choice of a side.
The list simply wouldn’t be complete without some sort of long pasta dish. Now your Lady and the Tramp dreams really can come true. A piece of freshly breaded chicken breast with Parmesan cheese topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese sits atop a steaming bowl of classic Italian spaghetti. Make it your choice of tomato sauce and alfredo sauce and try your best to keep it off of your face…or don’t, and let you date clean you up a bit.
Desserts To Share
Messy Cookie Sandwich
There’s a reason why couples call each other “honey” or “sweetie” — there is a powerful link between sweet tastes and emotions associated with love! One of KELSEYS fave desserts is the “Messy Cookie Sandwich”. French Vanilla Ice Cream placed between two giant and warm chocolate chip cookies. Topped with chocolate and thick caramel sauce.
Funnel Cake Fries
Another shareable and delicious option is KELSEYS unique Funnel Cake Fries. They are golden fried strips of funnel cake topped with cinnamon sugar! Served warm with french vanilla ice cream, and a choice of chocolate or caramel sauce. Yum!
