At times, I enjoy the finer things in life. This mostly shines through with my obsession of sneakers. I occasionally enjoy treating myself to an expensive meal or some expensive adult beverages.
But for the most part, I enjoy simple pleasures. The thought of crushing a few cheap, low-quality beers with some friends is far more appealing to me than buying a $20 six-pack of craft-brewed IPAs.
This applies to my taste in food as well. Every now and then a $25 plate of something high-quality is good, but give me me some nice bar food nine times out of 10.
That’s what the OB offers. Affordable, solid bar food. The chicken strip basket has simple elements that just taste good. It’s nothing to write home about, but I won’t complain about it.
The OB’s lighting is whacko, and I didn’t want to turn my phone’s flash on and have everyone stare at me like an idiot, so here’s a low-quality picture of the pretty good-quality food I ate there.
It was just a classic basket. The chicken strips were pretty solid overall. They had adequate crunch and seasoning. The fries were inconsistent in crispiness, but they were decent overall.
This was some of the best ranch I’ve had, which was a little surprising. I didn’t expect the OB to have such good sauce, but well done.
Overall, I give this basket a 7.3. Nothing spectacular, but certainly not bad. It’s a good dish for people like me who enjoy simple, yet tasty food. 7.3.
