Appetizer favorites

Since being married to David I've learned a lot of things, and one of those things is how YUMMY restaurant appetizers are. I always am a little reluctant to spend the money, but whenever I do I am seldom disappointed! Some of my favorites are:

The Applebees sampler.
Mozzarella sticks, cheese quesadillas, boneless chicken wings, & spinach-artichoke dip. Need I say more?!

PF Chang's Lettuce Wraps
If you haven't tried these, you have to! The crisp lettuce and tofu or chicken mixture is so good.

Olive Garden Breadsticks
Okay, these aren't really an appetizer. But they ARE one of my favorites.

Chips & Queso
I really prefer queso made from white cheese, and when it's done right it makes me so happy!

Stuffed Mushrooms
When we go to Olive Garden I sometimes get these as my entree.

Chiles Southwestern Eggrolls
These little beauties are also entre-worthy!

What are your favorite appetizers?

I too love appetizers. We don't get them often when we are on a date (except the free Chips and Salsa), but when a group gets together they are usually ordered.
I love calamari at Italian restaurants, mozzarella sticks, and bruschetta are so good too! I love Italian.
I also like Spinach and Artichoke dip, and stuffed mushrooms. I'm sure there's more.

I have a secret love affair with the nachoes at Iggy's. MMMM!

Oh My Goodness! I love all of those too. The southwestern egg rolls are my all time favorite. The only addition I can make are chicken wings from Double Shots. (Yes, I know it's a dump, but man they make good wings!)

I love the cheese biscuits at Red Lobster, the cheese fries at Outback, White Cheese queso dip, the chili's queso and beef dip..what was it called again? yummy. I love spinach and artichoke dip and if done right, jalepeno poppers are good. Last time we ate at Indigo Joes, the poppers were great. At the Red Rock Cafe in SLC, I loved the fried green tomatoes. I miss that place. Their jack daniels icecream was soooo yummy....even as an appetizer! :)

I never even glance at the appetizer part of the menu because I can't eat both appetizer and entre. I'm going to have to expand my horizons and check these out! Thanks for the tips!

I love the lettuce wraps and olive garden is always great. I get the alfredo dipping sauce for the bread sticks! It's so good. Olive garden as the best aflredo sauce for sure!

Come to think of it, we hardly ever get appetizers. You've inspired me to try them out!

I love Chiles eggrolls too. Sometimes I get them as my entree. I also love the Cheesecake Factory's tamales. Yum!

Archibalds @ Gardner Village has the best breaded avacados! Sounds strange,but that's what keeps us going back! Also the Rattlesnake bites from Texas Roadhouse are one of Cody's favorites!
