My wife and I had a date night tonight. A local church was offering free childcare, so we left them off and we proceeded to run a few errands then went to Bennigan's to use the BOGO certificate I got for my birthday from their Bennigan's Club. I ordered the FIRE-GRILLED 8 OZ. SIRLOIN - A tender cut of choice sirloin grilled to perfection. Served with loaded baked potato and broccoli. My wife ordered the SOUTHWEST FAJITAS - Flame-grilled chicken and/or marinated steak served over sauteed onions and bell peppers with black beans, seasoned rice, flour tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, Colby cheese and pico de gallo.
Our waitress, Whitney, was great. She took good care of us during our visit, making sure our drinks were filled and checking that everything was OK.
As I suspected, my wife told our server we were there for my birthday. So they proceeded to parade out of the kitchen with a BROWNIE BOTTOM PIE - A chewy chocolate fudge brownie with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, covered with hot fudge and crowned with a puffy cloud of whipped cream and a cherry.
But they didn't finish the delivery of my dessert before they sang Bennigan's birthday song for all to hear. Was I embarrassed? Mildly. Did I finish off the dessert? Duh? But not without sharing it with my wife first.
We were able to pay for the meal with a gift card we had previously purchased. So, in a way, the meal didn't cost us anything.
Oh, and they are currently running a deal on GCs. If you purchase a $25 GC during your visit, you get $5 off that night's meal AND a GC for $5 good towards your next visit. Pretty crafty marketing!
