In the midst of Pixar Fest kicking off, The Golden Horseshoe unveiled a few new menu items. These food offerings seemed like the perfect comfort food, so I hurried over to sample them.
Loaded Potato Skins with Hearty Meat Chili for $8.49
This was a very one-note meal. Although the chili was, in fact, quite hearty, it was disappointing when served with undercooked potato skins. Hopefully this wasn’t the standard, because the portion was huge and it had the potential to be a great dish.
Pepper Jack Chili Mac topped with Hearty Meat Chili for $8.49
I was not expecting the fried cheese-curds when I ordered this, but they turned out to be a pleasant surprise. A downside, though, is I couldn’t tell if the cheese was pepper jack. Definitely eat these menu items while they’re hot; the texture changes significantly in both dishes even when cooled off slightly.
Coke Float served in Woody’s Boot for $17.49
It’s advertised as a classic root beer float, but you can substitute any drink with this purchase. I was impressed with how much this cup could hold and I think it fit into the restaurant theming and Pixar Fest really well. The bottom of the boot is even stamped with ‘Andy’, which is a nice touch.
Also new to the menu are Chicken Wings served with Fries and a choice of dipping sauce for $11.49. They were unfortunately not served on the day I was there. I do like that The Golden Horseshoe is trying to change up their menu while also keeping it familiar. While chili seems to be abundant on the new menu, I can’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing.
