That’s right, there is a location about 20 minutes away from me and up until last Friday, I had never been. So this past Friday, I decided to take my grandmother to lunch and to check out the regular and lighter fare menu.

To get things started, I ordered the original baked potato soup and it was amazing. Everyone knows I love a good potato soup and this one was delicious.  My grandmother wanted to try some shrimp so we ordered spicy shrimp, again another hit at our table. We were already impressed before we even ordered our entrees. Now that’s the way to make a repeat customer out of me, good food and great customer service.

Recently Updated39My grandmother loves salmon so she ordered the salmon off the lighter fare menu. Each dish on the  menu was less than 590 calories and was prepared with fresh and nutritive ingredients. I tried some of her salmon and even though it was light on calories, the taste was incredible, they definitely didn’t skimp on the flavor. The lighter fare menu also included options like chicken and prime sirloin, so there is something for everyone. The lighter fare menu doesn’t stop there, they also included deserts and cocktails. So if you are looking to get a lot of flavor for less the calories, I definitely suggest trying the light fare menu.

Because I love to sample different dishes, I decided to try the Buffalo Bleu Salad. This salad was made with Houlihan’s chicken tenders tossed in buffalo sauce and placed on top of the salad. Not only was it good, it was extremely fresh, just how I like my salads. After that it was time for desert, we ordered caramel apple pie. All in all everything was just delicious but perhaps the best thing about Houlian’s were the prices. Can you believed we ordered all of that food plus drinks and paid less than $60.

Now, I’m giving away a $50 Houlihan’s gift card so you can go and check out the new menu for yourself.
