Lunch with certain coworkers always leads to gutbombs and I love them for it. Instead of our usual burger conquest, we went for barbecue. Virgil's is close and easy. I haven't been there in years so I also wanted to see if I still liked or disliked it.
With that notion of too much food in my head, I skipped the appetizers and went straight to entrees. My friends had a different idea. He ordered the Trainwreck Fries ($12) to share. Think nachos but with fries. Oh man, these were addictingly good. Thick fries smothered in melted cheddar and jack cheese with bacon, scallions, jalapeno's and ranch sauce. Gosh darn it. At this moment I knew I would be sleeping at work for the rest of the afternoon. Especially since this could happily feed 4-6 people as a starter and it was just us 3.
