So – I have been to two popular locations of this indescribably good local spot. Cruisers Grill is everything you want – and more – from your local casual burger-and-fries-joint that is a step above fast food. Even though they are famous for their burger, which has been around long before the gourmet burger trend took hold in our lives, their chicken is stupefyingly good. Marinated chicken chunks. These three words are really all you need to know when ordering at Cruisers – in my opinion. my awesome lunch – marinated chicken chunks and ranch
OK – so I lied. There is one REALLY important word you also need to utter at Cruisers. I mean this word is almost as important to your well-being as the word Expelliarmus is to Harry Potter’s life. Are you ready for it…RANCH…and not just the Hidden Valley or Kraft mediocre chemical filled kind. Cruisers’ ranch dressing is homemade and is pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted from ranch…which is alot. This buttermilk ranch will knock your socks off. You also will devour it quicker than Leo DiCaprio downs Quaaludes in The Wolf of Wall Street. Honestly it is some amazing ranch dressing. We all know Jonah Hill would drown all of his food in it…and then have Leo save his life when he chokes. Sorry for all the “Wolf of Wall Street” talk but that scene is just so incredible.
Anyways if you are ever in Northeast Florida, specifically Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach or St. Augustine, you should do yourself a favor and go grab some marinated chicken chunks…and ranch and bask in all its glory. Be careful though, you might just addicted. And if you are a vegetarian – well I really don’t know what to tell you – oh wait – one more word: CHEESE FRIES. I think that says it all. Also the Tootsie Pops they give you with your meal make our inner child happy. But only the red flavors since I’m 5 at heart.
