When making a mental list of everything I wanted to say about Boscos, I eventually had to stop myself knowing that no reader wants to read a novel on why Boscos is so great. Let me first start off by saying that I was raised around Boscos. It is possibly my parents’ favorite place to eat and grab a beer in town. My cousin was the brewmaster for years, before opening up his own amazing restaurant in East Tennessee. My aunt and uncle named their dog Bosco. My dad is friends with Any Feinstone. Boscos is a part of my family.
Trying to be completely unbaised toward Boscos is very hard for me, yet at the same time I hold a very high expectation for them. They have never let me down.
It’s pretty safe to say that I Love Boscos. Did I mention we are getting a keg of Ghost River beer for my graduation party? I feel this is a present enough.
This particular time I was at Boscos, it was a stormy night. Scott and I, along with friends Laura and Casey, camped out for a while to await the passing of the storms. We all ordered beer, as Boscos has some of the best brews in town. I highly recommend the Midtown Brown, for all of you brown ale lovers.
We then proceeded to order a ridiculous amount of food. Casey and Laura ordered a Spinach and Artichoke Dip as an appetizer. Scott and I got fried calamari and the Chesapeake Pizza. This pizza is one of my favorite things on the menu.
Casey and Laura then split the Pollo Diablo Pizza. Scott got the Seared Ahi Tuna Salad. I got the Black Bean and Goat Cheese Tamale, my other favorite menu item.
I also highly recommend the Fried Artichoke Hearts and Parmesan Garlic Fries. These fries are not on the menu, but they can make them. VERY worth it!
I don’t know what Boscos does to their food to make it so delicious, but they have a secret way of blending spices and flavor like no one else. This menu has become my comfort food.
Four short days later, I found myself back at Boscos after a show at Minglewood Hall. Erin was craving their pizza, and I never say no to this place. She got the Chesapeake, and I ordered the Wood Oven Shrimp. This light appetizer, cooked in a skillet with butter, could not have been any better.
