Chicken Caesar Review: Mudville Grille

The Mudville Grille is a chain here in Jacksonville which has a downtown location that me and some coworkers visited for lunch today. They serve a Caesar Salad that includes fresh romaine lettuce, creamy Caesar dressing, seasoned croutons and Parmesan cheese. You have the option to add grilled chicken, which will bring the total of the salad to $6.99.

To begin with, the salad is not tossed. The lettuce, which seemed to be more iceberg than romaine, was crisp and spread out on a platter. The dressing that was spread over was decent, about halfway between creamy and oily. The croutons were store bought and very small, so that it was difficult to eat them with a fork. Also, if they were indeed seasoned, I didn't taste it. I didn't detect any Parmesan at all, so they might have forgotten it. The chicken which was cut into chunks, was perhaps the best part. Although I think the chicken might not have been fresh, it was still tasty and tender.

A totally unremarkable salad. One my coworkers mentioned that the chicken breast sandwich they were having was one of the best they've ever tasted. I suggest you order that if you are ever at the Mudville Grille.
