We got a recommendation on our Facebook page to try Marley’s Monster Grill, so that’s where we ended up tonight.  I had checked out the menu online beforehand and it gave me the giggles, so we just had to try it.  It’s not a very big place, but from the moment we walked in, we had a good feeling about it.  The walls are covered with monster movie memorabilia and the owners were very nice.  As people walked in, they were greeted by name, so this seems to be a place people come back to again and again.

They brought over some homemade chips & queso.

I liked the chips, but the queso was a bit too Cheez-wizzy for me.  It had some heat flavorwise, but wasn’t warm temperature wise.  I just prefer my queso warm to the touch.  We ordered some garlic monster toes.  Seriously, how could you pass up ordering something called Monster Toes??

Yummy little pizza dough munchies.  They asked if we wanted garlic butter or marinara to dip them in & since we hadn’t tried either before, they brought out both.  I actually liked both & ended up dipping the dough in the garlic, then the marinara.  I had to stop eating them or there was no way I was going to be able to eat my sandwich… which was huge, by the way.

This is the way I like my Philly cheesesteak.  The Amoroso rolls are so soft, the meat is finely shaved and it’s covered in onions, mushrooms, mayo & cheese.  I’m not a Wiz gal, so it’s American cheese for me.  I only managed to eat half of it, but the other half will make for some tasty leftovers.  And I’m a fan of anyone who serves sweet potato fries.

Loren got the chicken grill sandwich which came with fries.

One minute, I was taking a photo and the next, the sandwich was gone.  He really liked it.  The chicken was thin, but very tender, the veggies & bread fresh and he liked the mayo-dijon spread on it.

The first thing listed on their menu is dessert, because why wouldn’t you want to eat dessert first, so I just couldn’t resist ordering a chocolate covered brownie cheesecake on a stick.

It was pretty good.  It had a layer of brownie inside plus a chocolate cheesecake.  Plus the plate & chocolate sauce design made me giggle.  The food did take a while to come out of the kitchen, but when it comes out fresh & tasty, it’s worth the wait.  They also have a monthly Face Trivia game, so we were quite occupied trying to figure out the who’s who.  It was a fun way to pass the time.  Total bill was $27 and this is definitely a place we’ll be back to.
