We’ve gone past Peanutz many times. We’ve discussed going there. Finally, one day, the talk became truth and we walked in the door. Well, Sam walked in the wrong door. But you know. We eventually made it inside.
Peanutz is a bar, plain and simple. A bar that has some awesome food, as we were soon to discover.
Nina had the Double Decker Reuben. Yes, to maintain its structural integrity, the Reuben had an extra layer of bread within it. She changed out the sauerkraut for cole slaw, as usual, and was rewarded with greatness. She even had some left for the next day, which prompted her to IM Sam and tell him just how well the Reuben held up a day later.
We split a half dozen of their 4 Dip wings. What’s a 4 Dip? Perhaps you are having difficulty deciding on which wing sauce to enjoy. Peanutz makes it easy for you. They dip the wing into four different sauces. Well done, Peanutz. The wings weren’t all that thick, but they were flavorful.
Finally, Sam put a burger in his face. He also enjoyed it. Are you surprised? This burger had chopped bacon versus bacon slices, along with cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes and mustard. There was a rich BBQ sauce within it and Cajun spices for heat. What are Cajun spices? Well, we did some internet investigating and discovered that they include salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, onion powder, ground black and white pepper, garlic powder, dried basil, chili powder, dried thyme, ground mustard and ground cloves. Well, this burger had some spice.
We went to Peanutz around 2PM and it wasn’t really busy. We’re not sure if it picks up later or what the scene is like. But if you’re looking for a great burger or a sandwich that will be just as delectable a day later, you can’t go wrong.
