Quick shout out.

Posted in Eat & Drink

And now, it is time for the Shop Tart’s yearly shout out to McConkey’s, because every so often, you need to get out of the kitchen at the beach. The Shop Tart took her three boys for lunch yesterday. The ATW (all the way!) nachos were a hit.


As was the ATW quesadilla.


The Shop Tart’s mahi tacos were excellent, the portion so enormous she still has half of it in the fridge.


The Tank, almost seven years old, really, really wanted fried shrimp. His mother hesitated at the cost (maybe $12.99?), which seemed reasonable, but pricey for a kid. He really wanted the shrimp, though, and she figured she could snag one and steal plenty of his house-made chips. Au contraire. She managed half a shrimp before he grabbed the other half from her hand, gobbling it himself. She did a get a few chips, but only after great protest. Seriously, this basket o’food was that good, worth every penny.


And now the Shop Tart has to get back to hanging with the Tank on the beach. Is it just her, or does he look a little like Morrissey?


Speaking of Morrissey…summer jams!

    Nothing as good as take-out McConkey’s cheeseburger and chips on the beach!

    We love mcConkeys AND they will meet the need for gluten-free food for my grandson. I love the fish and chips.
