About a couple of months ago, I first discovered a small restaurant near my house named Claim Jumper. I didn't think much of this particular restaurant because it didn't seem special or unique in any way. It reminded me of any other American restaurant such as Applebees or BJ's bar and grill. However once I went to this restaurant, I was simply amazed. For the price a person pays, they get a very generous proportion of food. On my first visit, I had the chicken apple whiskey stuffing chicken (full size).
The two pieces of chicken are grilled, juicy, and cooked all day. The sauce glazing the chicken was made with chunks of apples and with whiskey. The meal also came with warm, tasty mashed potatoes and biscuits. I was only able to eat half of the meal and left the rest for home. Usually when I take food home and put it in the refrigerator, I don't want to eat it because I don't like cold restaurant food. However, warming my meal tasted exactly the same as it was in the restaurant. That was an extra bonus for me. I would highly recommend people to go to Claim Jumper and order the Apply whiskey chicken.
Upon my second visit to Claim Jumper, I was cold and decided to try out a soup. The choices for soup are vegetable, clam chowder, and this cheese-beef chili and you have the option to have order a bread bowl or not. For 8 dollars, I ordered the clam chowder with the bread bowl was huge. It was as big as a large plate and filled with clam chowder. The clam chowder was creamy and thick. Other places serve their clam chowder slightly watery and it lacks taste. However, Claim Jumper makes the 8 dollars you pay worth it. They also offer a bowl of soup without the bread for about 5 dollars. I believe that the bowl of soup is for anyone looking to have a nice appetizer. If anyone lives near a Claim Jumper, I suggest trying out the food.
