When I was a little girl, we never went out to eat.
Well, never unless you count eating at Old Grandma's house which we did pretty much every day.
But going to a restaurant, even to a fast food joint? There was no money for such luxuries.
I do remember one restaurant, though, and I remember it being a super special treat. We had to drive about forty minutes to get there, but the all-you-can-eat buffet made the trip worthwhile.
And, they had pickled eggs.
And cinnamon bread.
And an entire dessert bar.
I remember how special it was to go out to eat, and I remember what a treat it was to go specifically to Hoss's.
Now that I'm an adult, Hoss's still a treat. My kids love it, and my husband and I love it.
If you've never been to Hoss's, you're missing out. Let me tell you about it.
When you arrive, you place your order at the door. The entire menu is on the wall, and you can choose just the soup, salad, and dessert bar (what we always get for our kids), or you can go for a burger or other entree.
Hoss's is celebrating the burger during Hossome Burger Fest, happening at all Hoss's locations now through November 9. During Hossome Burger Fest, eight burgers on the Hoss's menu, including three new burger options, are priced at just $5.99 and include endless french fries.
Assuming you order the salad bar (and why wouldn't you?), you can go right there.
Your options are almost limitless – five different soups, several different kinds of breads, and a long line of fresh salad toppings.
As you can see, Grace went for cinnamon bread instead of salad.
I, on the other hand, made myself a big salad full of spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, mushroom, and banana peppers. There's lots of great stuff in there.
While I was still working on my big old salad, my burger arrived. Because I'm gluten-free, I ordered mine with no bun, and Hoss's was happy to oblige my request.
What you can't see in the photo below is the thick layer of cream cheese and jalapeÃƒ±o peppers under the burger. It was like a big stuffed jalapeÃƒ±o with every bite of my burger. YUM!
I would have taken a picture of Joe's steak, but he ate it before I had a chance.
Allie enjoyed a variety of melon and other fruit (her typical fare), and the big dessert bar. There were even gluten-free choices including ice cream and pudding.
