On Friday after work I met up with some friends and decided to do a review of Cheap Seats Pub and Grub located at 427 San Benito Street in historic, downtown Hollister. I was a slacker with my camera and did not catch the decor or the facade. But I am sure I will be back to review this place in the near future. Now, on with the food!
I had the Fried Calamari with Onion Rings and it just so happened to be the special at Cheap Seats on Friday. There was an equal combination of rings and tentacles. It was your standard batter-coated, deep fried squid, fried quickly preventing it from becoming too tough. It was served plain, with salt and marinara sauce on the side. Greasy, yet delicious. Did not finish the basket or for that matter even put a dent into it.
Next up was the famous Cheeseburger that Cheap Seats has become known for. It looked great! It was huge! The toppings looked fresh, the fries looked like they were cooked well done but, that is how I like them - a little crisp.
Look at this beauty! The Grilled Chicken Sandwich was also large in size. All stacked up and ready to munch on! Looks great. And healthy too!
Other table orders were Hot Wings and Nachos. The Hot Wings are great. Very addicting but the garlic taste consumes you after awhile. Not recommended date food. The Nachos are what they are. Artificial cheese. But oh so good. Eat them while they are hot because once they are cold... have the waitress take them away.
... and one of my favorite reasons to come Cheap Seats...
The flower guy comes by! Roses for $5 is a score!
All and all Cheap Seats is a great place to meet up with friends for a casual night out. Drinks are a plenty and the food is satisfying. Not necessarily easy on the waistline but for a treat, it does the job well. I am sure this won't be my last trip to Cheap Seats. You will probably see me there after our softball team, AB's Wrecking Crew, wins the championship again! Boo-yah.
