Gary Rack's Farmhouse Kitchen
- TawnyJun. 4, 2022Dog friendly, food ok.
I really want to like this restaurant but I came for the food and yes, I get the ambiance as well which in fact was cute.
From the start the customer service was good. The server was nice and offered us water. It was quite warm out and I appreciate how they were dog friendly.
The food is considered to be on the healthier side but everything really lacked flavor. I wished they would put salt and pepper on the tables.
What we ordered
Chicken tacos - 3/5 Although the flavor was ok it lacked something... most places offer fries or side salad if paying $17 but nope you get 3 tacos straight up. I probably should of asked for the chimichurri sauce on the side. I didn't taste it at all
Avocado Caesar - 2/5 Nice way to present a crispy avocado with covering it in toasted sesame seeds. Again, the Chef needs to work on flavor as the dressing was super bland.
Chicken lettuce wrap - 4/5 I was quite impressed with this dish. All signs show a Hispanic dish but not even close. This was ground chicken with lentils and sweet potatoes with Indian spices. Flavor full but still need that umami - salt, soy sauce, fish sauce. Choose... I gave you 3.
Another thing I had to point out was the price adjustment on the bill for ingredient costs. The server mentioned that if price fluctuates then it covers the costs but what happens if the price is lower? is it given back to the customers? I get it we are post Covid or maybe getting back to it whatever. Let me just say, I just took a trip across country and you were the only restaurant that charged for this. Customers don't want to see that... add it to the food, drink price or consider other options.
