Calico Jack’s Cantina

Oh February 28th. One of the greatest days of my life. And nachos from Calico Jack’s Cantina almost ruined it.

I joined 100+ Buffalo Sabres fans at McFadden’s on 2nd Ave and 42nd. After rubbing elbows with Buffalo legends Rob Ray, Lindy Ruff, James Patrick and Rick Jeanneret, I was famished. We headed next door for a quick bite to eat at Calico Jack’s Cantina before heading back to BK. (Dear God, don’t go to the website. It autoplays crappy bar music from a jukebox amongst all the other confusion of its layout.) Given the location, I should have known we would get over priced, Buffalo Wild Wings caliber nachos.

The chips were flimsy, straight from a bag and had a little too much red dye #5 for my taste. It got soggy in a hurry. The huge dollop of sour cream didn’t help. Pico was flavorless and the guac had a ton of tomatoes in it and nothing more. My major beef was the price. Fifteen bucks and we didn’t even get chicken or chorizo. On a normal day I would have been fuming but after a night where you’ve hugged Rob Ray 4 times, not even a cheese sauce could dampen my spirits.

    Go anywhere but here. I’m not picky, but this was by far the worst place I can think of to spend an evening. Completely unprofessional behavior. If I was the owner the front of house would be fired on the spot. You can tell that everyone who works here doesn’t care, bouncers included. I’m baffled as to how they’re still in business. Food was burnt, drink orders were screwed up, and the staff is rude. Avoid at all costs.
