Jungle Eatery

I'm sure most of you have heard of the Rainforest Cafe.

I didn't know Wednesday night was kids eat for $1.99 until we got there MONDAY night. Oh well.

Jeff and I had told the boys we'd eat there someday and they were super excited. I asked for a table right by the gorillas, which scared Treyson a bit, but Griffin and Kai absolutely loved. The atmosphere was loud and seemed to welcome Griffin's constant gorilla calls and actions.

Does anyone know if their french fries are supposed to be potato chip crunchy? My food tasted okay ( I've made better), which proved that most of the mula goes to the entertaining interior. However, this is the first time in the history of eating out with kids that, -not once!-, did I have to say, "Sit down and eat your food, please."

Both were so intrigued by all the movement, sounds, and thunderstorms going on around them, the food just kept going in.

It was great.

that was pretty close to the same experience we had there!! overpriced food and really loud atmosphere, but really happy kids!!

I completely agree! We had some pasta dish that was ok, nothing great but cost an arm and a leg. But the atmosphere was fun, so I guess I was glad we went. Haven't been back since, though... (that was YEARS ago)

Love it there - although I felt the same about the food. We'll have to go together next time I come down.

How FUN! I love that place and was just thinking how much my kids would go nuts for it! Thanks for the tip about Wednesday night - it's on my calendar for next week!
