After that debacle, we took off to see another of Shelly's Roadside America sites. This time it was the replica White House. Dream project of a builder, three-quarters the size of the one in Washington. Contains an Oval Office and Lincoln bedroom. Built in the early 2000s, but was sold in a foreclosure in 2011. Now it's a private home.
|I found an article that sheds more light on it's history.|
We arrived back at the hotel, too tired to go back out for dinner, so we ordered room service. They set up a table complete with white linen tablecloth, ice waters, and a small plant for ambiance.
I had their signature burger with a side of sriracha mayo & honey mustard. You can tell this was a hand formed patty, as it fell apart. Well seasoned, juicy, and cooked to order medium well. I liked the brioche bun, grilled and fluffy. The fries were good, but I should have requested them twice fried as I prefer crispy fries.
|Signature Beef Burger|
1/2 lb angus beef, bibb lettuce, tomato, bacon jam, herb aioli, cheddar, brioche bread
Shelly had the turkey club with house made chips. This club was stacked with meat, a lot more meat to bread. The sriracha mayo added a good tang to the sandwich, the bacon was perfectly crispy, and the house made chips were awesome. Definitely a great room service option.
roasted turkey, applewood smoked bacon, bibb lettuce, sriracha mayo, sourdough bread
