I’ll see you at the Sirloiner

I have driven past a few steakhouses in my day that used the name “The Sirloiner”, but I have never been into one. The Sirloiner featured in this mid-eighties commercial looks like a pretty happening place. With its cheap surf and turf and live entertainment (that I hope was a real thing), how can you go wrong for a mere $7.99. We went to a few steak and chop houses when I was a kid, but none of them had anything in the way of rowdy floor show style live entertainment. It makes me wonder if I would find it entertaining or if I would get annoyed with the whole situation? Probably both.

One thought on “I’ll see you at the Sirloiner

  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    I dunno, if I were all primed up for a delicious chunky Sirloiner, I’d probably start getting a little batty as the singers finished their first set while I’m sitting there, tasting the unlickable aroma, waiting for my meal to make its way home.

    Of course, if the meal-delivery service itself included showtunes, that’d be a-okay.
