After we ordered, Chuck, co-owner of the Grillin and Chillin, came by to greet us. "What are you having?" he asked. We told him. He nodded, a big fat grin taking over his face. "Have you had our pancakes before?"
"Nope," said the Husband.
"You're in for a treat," he said. Before heading for the counter, Chuck may have said something like "They're kind of big."
A few seconds later, he called. "The cook is making your pancake now. Come take a look."
It turned out that wasn't the Husband's pancake. His was next.
Let's just say when his blueberry pancake was set in front of him, we were both surprised.
You ought to put a warning on your menu," we kidded the waitress.
She laughed. "That's what the other customer said!"
The Husband had an appetite that morning, so he put a good size dent on his yummilicious pancake. The waitresses were surprised. "Usually the adults don't eat as much," one waitress said. "The kids are a different story.
Goes to show that the Husband is still a kid.
