Latest Chaser's Bar & Grill news and reviews

JM ate the smokehouse chicken sandwich with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the signature burger.
The bill was $20ish, or $10ish/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole gave Chaser's a C (see our grading rubric).

Chaser's on Gilman is the sort of sports bar that seems heavy on the sweaty sports.  Too much of the full contact, full body stuff.  Not enough of the thoughtful analysis.  Maybe that's a little too psychiatric, but as sports bars go, this one leaves little to the imagination.

The smokehouse chicken sandwich was a bit of a cipher. The BBQ sauce was un-zingy, the jalapeños in the menu description were absent, and the fried onion straws added nothing.  Overall, it was a hot mess without being spicy.

The signature burger was salty. Between the bacon, cheddar, fried onions and handful of pickles, the smallish patty and toasted bun were hard-pressed to neutralize the sodium.

Both sandwiches were on the cute-small side, which is OK because they would'nt've reheated. The fries & waffles were standard.

The best part about Chaser's was the friendly service. Plus (and this is the kind of one-time thing we don't like to mention because we don't want to wreck it for everyone) a customer with her dogs got a nice seat on the patio and the server even brought the pups a dish of water.
