Way Point Saloon
So, we’re going to start reviewing all the onion rings Ramona has to offer (because it’s tastier than salad). We decided to start at one of our favorite o-ring spots to help set the standard! We’re at Way Point Saloon / Up the Hill Grill.You can draw your own conclusions, and of course, your mileage may vary. (Or YMMV as the young people say)… But this is based on our opinion and personal preference – so if you have a favorite, be sure to let us know about it!
Appetizer order was $6.95. Kitchen took a while to get it out, but came presented in an impressive tower with a generous side of fry-sauce.
Rings were hot and tasty, medium thickness. Seemed to be no discernible seasoning applied after the fry. Needed salt. Beer batter was good and just a bit sweet. Really nice. For the most part, we were able to bite through the rings without dragging the rest of the onion out, which is a plus!
Per the bartender, they’re housemade and not frozen. I’m not sure about this, they were all so uniform and consistently battered throughout. Still an excellent order of rings and a good value. One of our favorites when at UTHG.
An outstanding “fry sauce” accompanies the tower of rings! Seems to be a mayonnaise base mixed with maybe some ketchup(?) and a good amount of seasoning… Compliments their onion rings and fries very well!
