My ears perked up at the mention of a chicken tender sub. Chicken tenders? A sub FULL of chicken tenders? My heart began to race when I then heard mention of a “Stinger.” A “Stinger,” folks, is a chicken tender AND steak sub. EEEEE. It can be other combinations too, but when the option to eat chicken tenders and something that looks like and tastes like steak comes your way, you don’t say no.
Jim’s Steakout is a Buffalo institution offering the aforementioned subs. There are locations throughout the city. Our particular stop was nothing to look at, but we weren’t there for the ambiance. BRING ON THE SUBS.
The Stinger was a miraculous blend of Buffalo chicken tenders, bleu cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and steak. While I know that the name is play of steak and finger (right?), I also can’t help but think it is a warning: your body is going to hurt. This sucker will sting ya! But sweet crap, it is worth it. I’m planning my next trip to Buffalo and loading up on Jim’s Steakout subs.
Bringing the big cooler!
