OK Parrothead's, I know that this is not a Mexican Restaurant, but who can pass up the chance for a Cheeseburger in Paradise?

Cheeseburger in paradise
Heaven on earth with an onion slice
Not too particular, not too precise
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise

Beth and I started out for dinner and ran across the restaurant in a new multi use center near Perimeter Mall in Perimeter Place. The entrance that we used is just across from CompUSA on Abernathy. According to our waiter this location is a franchise owned and operated by Outback Steakhouse which also owns Carrabba's Italian Grill and Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.

The decoration in the restaurant include a sign that reads "It must be 5 o'clock somewhere"  keeping with the Jimmy Buffett and Margaritaville tie in.

I ordered the Cheeseburger in Paradise, what else? Beth ordered the Island Quesadilla  without the bacon bits that were described on the menu (food allergy). The food arrived and I must say that the burger was very good, fries were average, but lots of them. Unfortunately Beth's quesadilla arrived with bacon bits that she only discovered after taking a few bites. We called this to the attention of the waiter who was very apologetic. He went back to the kitchen to correct the error. Within a few minutes a manger arrived at the table and also apologized. They offered to reorder the  quesadilla but by that time Beth was not feeling like eating. The manager comped her a margarita.

The margarita's are quite good. They even come with side shot's of Grand Marnier. They also come with cute little faces and umbrellas!


In spite of our food misadventure Beth and I agreed that we would return.
