Yabba dabba doo! Hold on tight, folks, because Thunder Road Steakhouse & Cantina is about to take your taste buds on a thrilling culinary journey! Situated inside the Route 66 Casino Hotel, this place is a foodie's paradise. Let me share my exciting experience from my recent visit to this one-of-a-kind eatery.

First things first, we were staying at the Route 66 Casino Hotel RV Resort and decided to pay a visit to Thunder Road. From the moment we walked in, we knew we were in for a treat. The staff was friendly and seated us promptly, setting the stage for an amazing dining adventure.

To kick off our feast, we couldn't resist ordering the tableside guacamole. And boy, did Thunder Road deliver! A skilled cook came out to our table and prepared the guacamole to our exact preferences. From the number of limes to the choice of ingredients like tomatoes and garlic, our guacamole was customized to perfection. It was a bit on the chunky side, but if you prefer a smoother texture, I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige.

Our little ones were thrilled to find that even though there wasn't a dedicated kids' menu, they could order sides. The baked mac and cheese and french fries were a hit, and the portions were generous enough to keep them satisfied.

Now, let's talk about the main courses. My wife opted for the steak and shrimp meal, accompanied by collard greens and a loaded baked sweet potato. She also indulged in a delightful cocktail (although there was a minor mix-up, which was swiftly rectified). Each bite of her meal was a symphony of flavors that left her taste buds dancing. The steak was cooked to perfection, the shrimp were succulent, and the loaded sweet potato was a sweet and savory delight.

As for me, I had my eyes set on the Cowboy Beef Rib. Brace yourselves because this thing was colossal! The description promised one bone, but when the dish arrived, it felt like I had just unearthed a brontosaurus bone. It was a sight to behold, and I had enough to share with my ravenous 10-year-old. It was a carnivore's dream come true, and we devoured every juicy, tender bite.

Now, let's address the only small wrinkle in our culinary adventure: the collard greens. Maybe it's our Floridian palates, but the greens didn't quite match our expectations. However, it's a minor blip in an otherwise fantastic dining experience.

I won't sugarcoat it--the prices at Thunder Road Steakhouse Cantina aren't cheap. But let me tell you, my friends, it's worth every penny. The quality, flavors, and portion sizes are a testament to their commitment to culinary excellence.

So, if you're ready for a wild ride of flavors that will make your taste buds scream with joy, head on over to Thunder Road Steakhouse Cantina inside the Route 66 Casino Hotel. Buckle up, and get ready for a dining experience that will leave you shouting, "Yabba dabba doo, it was huge!"
