10/15/10-Margaritaville @ Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, CT

Ohh Jimmy, as much as I am a huge parrothead, I was disappointed on this trip to your namesake restaurant. I ordered the 25th anniversary items that were not on the menu--first the "1985" margarita-"A timeless classic! 12 oz. margarita made with Margaritaville Gold and Silver Tequila, Gran Gala, Cointreau, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice. Served with salted rim, and a lime."--holy liquor Batman, this thing was STRONG. It really didn't taste anything like what you would hope a margarita would taste like, unfortunately, so I hoped for better luck with the burger. "Not too Particular Not too Precise Cheeseburger--A special Cheeseburger in Paradise for sure. A handmade patty of 100% fresh ground chuck, cooked to order with Margaritaville Seasoning Salt topped with American cheese, red onion, lettuce and tomato (Heinz 57 available on the side) on a toasted bun. Served with French fried potatoes and big kosher pickle." I highly doubt this was a "handmade patty" because it was too perfect in shape and texture to be handmade. Tom ordered the "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and our burgers were exactly the same. I was disappointed, thinking that if you were going to create something special, not on the menu, that it would be just that--special! I guess I forgot that overall, this is a chain restaurant--I wouldn't go here expecting a culinary experience, go for the good tunes, the ambiance, the entertainment value and the drinks--just not the 1985.
