I love takeout. The convenience, the extra time it allows in the evening when I get home from work, and lots of times – leftovers! What I’ve missed most about dining out is the deliciousness of a classic buffet at a special restaurant – being able on a special occasion to sample several savory selections of meats, veggies, specialty dishes, salads and of course, desserts. Sometimes you just want a little of this and a little of that – right?
Thanks to Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, I can now have both: a variety of amazing culinary creations from which to choose from at one meal and the ability to enjoy it all from the comfort of my own home. That’s because the resort’s Song & Hearth restaurant is offering a BOGO (buy one, get one) deal dinner Sunday through Thursday.
The whole process is so easy from start to finish. You just call 865-428-9696 at least 24 hours in advance and make a reservation. Tell them what date and time between 5-9 p.m. you want to pick up your food, then you show up outside the resort, call the number on the sign out front and they bring you your food within a few minutes. It’s even brought to you in a cute reusable bag! Then you’re off to your house to unpack all the goodies!
Our Thursday night menu consisted of a tossed salad, fried chicken, beef brisket, ribs, pulled pork barbecue, collard greens, mac & cheese, baked beans (with some amazing sweet seasoning), rolls, mashed potatoes – and chicken fingers and tater tots for the children (well, we are young at heart – that’s what we’re going with!) If that wasn’t enough, the meal included tea and a multi-berry and cherry cobbler that was incredible. While we had a lot of food left over to enjoy again the next day, dessert was just too yummy to show any restraint; every bite was eaten!
Wednesdays and Thursdays have the same menu, so we’re going to have to order on a Monday or Tuesday to get a different sampling for our supper. There’s also a different Sunday menu. Yep, we’re going to try that, too.
The only thing more amazing than the quality and taste of all the great food choices is the value. I’m always looking for great dining deals, specifically ones that allow me to have some leftovers so that I can stretch the eating enjoyment to another lunch or dinner. This offer from Song & Hearth at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort offers all that and more. Even before we finished dessert, I was an extremely happy customer!
There are two things I don’t like about this deal: it will be over on Thursday, March 11 and it was a major test of my personal stamina to not stop halfway through my journey home and “sample” the fried chicken and eat a tater tot or two. Quality control, right?
Thank goodness I still have a couple of weeks left for this great deal. So, when you pull up curbside to get your BOGO one evening at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort, chances are good you’ll see me there. I’ll be the one that might be snacking on a delicious drumstick or a chicken tender while driving off! Now that’s a great thing to add to your list of things to do this spring!
