Way Point Saloon 

The other night we tried some appetizer/small plates at Way Point Saloon. Here’s an order of “Island Fries” ($9.25). Not sure what’s island about them but it was pretty tasty. Crispy crinkle fries topped with Cheddar cheese sauce, shredded Cheddar, bacon, green onion & sour cream. Served with Frank’s & ranch.

I personally like their beer battered fries better but I can see why they use the crinkle cuts with this dish. All the ripples need to grab on to the topping stuff. Still need to eat it with a fork. It’s a big enough serving for two people to share without eating much else. It had a fairly conservative amount of cheese (sauce and shred), I felt it could have used more. Everything else was proportioned well. After a while though, the tastes all ran together and it felt like you were just eating a big plate of fries. Seems like something else could have been added to complete this dish or bind it all together, I just can’t put my finger on it.

Since Gail does not do “chicken on a bone”, I ordered the boneless wings (strips). You can get their wings tossed in a wide variety of creative flavors. We chose the “lemon, pepper, parmesan” and it was excellent.

Way Point Saloon 

Way Point Saloon has the most impressive onion ring tower I’ve encountered!  What stands out for me is how hot & crispy they come out of the kitchen coupled with an outstanding fry sauce.  The rings here are beer battered and definitely in the top two of Ramona when it comes to onion rings.  23 draft beers on tap is a pretty good draw too!

The Par Lounge

Last Par Lounge appetizer for now. Here’s their outstanding potato skins! Happy hour price only $6.25. We’ve ordered these here over the years and sometimes they’ve been kind of gnarly.This one was excellent. Comes out with four huge, hot, crispy tater skins filled with a liberal amount of melted jack & cheddar cheese, a conservative amount of bacon and a few chopped green onions. These things could always use more bacon, that I can tell you! Served with a side of ranch and sour cream.

HH goes til 7pm, then the price goes up to $8.25.

Way Point Saloon

The tower of rings is one of my favorite appetizers and Ramona’s own Way Point Saloon does an outstanding job!  I think the best thing here is their tasty fry sauce. 🤗
