Chicken Caesar Review: Bennigan's

Bennigan's is one of those trendy bar & grill restaurants that has, as Moe Szyslak once put it, "a whole lotta' crazy crap on the wall". Their Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, which costs $6.99, has slices of grilled, mesquite-seasoned chicken breast served over romaine lettuce and tossed in Caesar dressing. It is topped with shredded Parmesan cheese and croutons, and served with a fresh baked dinner roll and honey butter. 
First off, they were out of rolls on this particular night so offered garlic toast, which they found later they were also out of. This was not a good sign. The lettuce was not extremely crisp and the pieces were a little too big for bite size. The croutons were an unimpressive store-bought brand. The dressing was a slightly sharp Caesar and was evenly distributed amonst the lettuce with the Parmesan. Finally the chicken, the best part, was an entire breast grilled and sliced into long pieces. The grilled flavor is strong and tasty.
Overall, it was only a so-so Chicken Caesar and is definitely not worth the price.
