New Bacon and Queso Egg Bagel at Einstein Bros

Einstein Bros Bagels, where they work absolute magic on the already wonderful bagel, has a new bagel to offer. It’s the Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich. The BQES features seasoned cage-free eggs topped with their new signature queso and Applewood smoked bacon on a choice of fresh baked bagel.

The new queso features double-whipped Jalapeno Salsa Shmear and spicy green chiles for a kick of heat “that will wake up your tastebuds.”

Einstein Bros. Bagels’ says their new Bacon & Queso Egg Sandwich is available at participating locations but NOT those inside colleges.

So guess where the only Einstein Bros Bagels is in the Greater Grand Strand? Yup. 125 Chanticleer Drive West in Conway which puts them right in the middle of Coastal Carolina University.

OK. So maybe there’s no BQES there. But there should be plenty of other options. See pictures, below.

Looks like it’s time for a road trip.

New Entrée at Carrabbas

Carrabbas has introduced a new dish, The Johnny Trio.

Named after one of the founders of the restaurant, Johnny Carrabba, it features three signature recipes on one plate: Tuscan-Grilled Sirloin Marsala, Chicken Bryan and Mezzaluna. The sirloin marsala is cooked at the wood burning grill to enhance its taste. The pasta and sauce is fresh made every day.

There’s a wide range of customizations and substitutions available.

The 7 ounce sirloin is $24.45, the 10 ounce $25.99 and the 9 ounce filet, $34.99.

(No offense but if I spent that much on the whole family, let alone one plate, I would get faint. And the price doesn’t even include a two liter bottle of Pepsi.)

There are three Carrabbas along the Grand Strand:

1015 US Hwy 17 N, North Myrtle Beach

511 Courtfield Drive, Murrell’s Inlet

Dickey’s Has Dr. Pepper Wings. Fly, Dickey’s, Fly!

Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants were founded in 1941 by Travis Dickey. For the last 80 years, they’ve served millions of people what they call Legit. Texas. Barbecue. To celebrate their 80 years, Dickey’s has introduced the limited-time Sweet & Smoky Pit-Smoked Wings with Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce.

Sadly, Dickey’s doesn’t provide any details on this. I guess the name says it all. Before we go on, maybe you were wishing you could watch a short, 15 second commercial with nice pictures of Dickey’s Sweet & Smoky Pit-Smoked Wings with Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce? You’re in luck. Click this link.

The party also marks the return of Brisket Chili. This authentic, Texas-style chili can be enjoyed as a premium side item or as a savory topper on a variety of menu classics such as Mac Stacks, Bakers or Frito Pie.

Dickey’s has over 550 locations across the United States and six other countries including the store at 3731 Oleander Drive in Myrtle Beach.

Review: Great Tasting Fast Food Alternative at Kosta Bowl

We had a great experience in Conway today. Off on a road trip, we decided to stop at the Kosta Bowl on Main Street. Truth is we didn’t know what to expect. Boy, were we very pleasantly surprised!

The store looks great and the staff friendly and attentive. And they were patient. After all, there are lot of great looking options to choose from.

So what is a Kosta Bowl? Better than trying to describe the concept let me tell you about mine.

I ordered the Goin’ Green Bowl. At the bottom is a chilled green “base” that’s topped with goodies. The base is somewhere between an ice cream and a pudding. On top is half a sliced banana and big, thick slices of kiwi. Toasted granola gives the mixture a nice, crunchy texture and coconut flakes add a taste of sweetness. The whole masterpiece is topped with a drizzle of almond butter and honey.

Others got the Palmetto Bowl, acai topped with pineapple, bananas, granola, honey and coconut flakes and the Nutty Bowl. The Nutty Bowl also had acai with fresh strawberries, bananas, granola, coconut flakes, honey, Nutella and peanut butter.

As one of the people in our party remarked, “This tastes like real food!”

These are not snacks. These are meals. The Kosta Bowl measures 5 ½ inches in diameter and is 3 inches deep and it arrives filled to the top. Along with 27 different bowls (including oatmeal), there are 12 Smoothies and 4 different fruit and yogurt parfaits. Bowls range from $9 to $11, Smoothies are $7 and the Parfaits $4.75.

It’s interesting to mention that Kosta Bowls was founded by a Myrtle Beach local. Already, there are three Kosta Bowls in the Greater Grand Strand with, according to the website, another on the way. And no doubt, many, many more to come.

A great place to eat and a great story. Spread the word.
