We went up to Fort McMurray for the oil sands tour and after the day of touring, we needed to eat! We drove around and found Moxie’s Grill & Bar which is normally a place where I don’t go as I don’t usually have a good experience for some reason or another.
I’m still in search of delicious Dry Ribs and really felt that they would do a good job with the pork ribs. The ribs were very well fried and quite delicious, but they really over seasoned with salt and pepper. I found myself shaking off the extra salt and pepper – but after we do that, it was awesome!
I decided to order Salmon Banh Mi Sandwich for some odd reason. I was really lucky as the fish wasn’t “fishy” and it tasted alright. The sandwich overall was a little bland, which was probably because my tastebuds were overwhelmed from the dry ribs, but it was good! My only complaint would be the sauce that came with the sandwich was really watered down. I also ordered gravy with the fries and it cost $1.00 for a tiny container (yup, you can’t see it, but it’s the condiment dish). To make it worse, it was runny and tasteless! They must have over diluted it, so I was not a happy camper.
Luckily, this dinner was for my husband’s birthday and his dish was good. He ordered Herb Chicken Alfredo which actually would be really sad if they messed up on it. He enjoyed it with fresh cracked pepper. It was creamy and decadent.
Overall, our experience wasn’t awful, but it definitely could have been better. There was nothing really “wrong” with our experience, just little things that seemed important to me that wasn’t satisfied.
