HANKS FINE STEAKS & MARTINIS IN GREEN VALLEY RANCH CASINO
I hadn’t been there in 10 years, but good friends invited us to go Saturday night. Lovely ambiance, nice wait staff, everyone seated appropriately apart.
I started with a watermelon martini and my other half went for a dirty martini. Our host is a beer expert, but unfortunately they don’t serve any of our local beers which we both would have tried. The happy hour is 4-7, for drinks only, but we indulged in a few more appetizers than we really needed. Chicken and beef sliders, great calamari, and Ahi Tuna tacos, all served on small plates for three.
I can never figure out why restaurants don’t serve two or four, always three. Our one host ordered the full meal of fried chicken which looked great and came with a big bowl of mashed potatoes with a wonderful chicken gravy. Dessert was a superb bananas foster, with 4 scoops of ice cream, enough for our party of four.
The guitarist was directly behind our table. We thought we might get drowned out but he was mellow and played great songs. Rumor has it he was on America’s Got Talent a few years back—very, very nice. Manager Diego Montemayer came over when we told him we were doing a review on the place. The menu is quite pricey, but I strongly suggest the happy hour.
