Sammy's Grill After a Little High School Football

It's always a good thing to go back to your old stomping grounds for a few cold brewskies with some friends.  While my "old stomping grounds" has changed a couple times throughout the years, I can definitely say that my most common watering hole these days is Sammy's Grill on Highland Road.  It's always good to have a place where you have the menu memorized and the waitstaff knows you by name and drink order. While I would prefer if they had a better tap beer selection, I certainly can't argue with a cold pitcher of Bud Light on a warm Baton Rouge evening.

Mmm... This Bud's for Me!

I know I know, how can a food and drink critic such as myself actually give praise to Bud Light?  Well, I really can't.  Not the beer.  But, I can always praise the company that I drink beer with!  On this particular day I was joined by some former teacher colleagues of mine from LHS, Rachel Saltzberg, Brandon Levatino, and Brent Broussard.  I got to listen to them talk about their new teaching gigs and how things in education have gone since my "retirement" back in May.  Mix in a few pitchers of beer after a high school football game, and you have a good time at Sammy's!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup at Sammy's Grill

I noticed a chef's special on the board that I had never seen before so it only made sense that I give it a try. The chicken pot pie soup featured tender chicken in a creamy soup with peas and carrots.  It tasted just like the stuffing of a chicken pot pie, which made it weird to eat as a soup.  The soup's consistency was rather solid for a soup and really belonged in a bread bowl or possibly even between two slices of bread like a chicken salad sandwich.  I really enjoyed the flavor, but overall it was a just a little odd.  Oh well, I still ate the entire bowl and left Sammy's satisfied and happy to spend time with some great company!
