JUST LIKE MOM USED TO MAKE!.
We visited Claim Jumper last night. I love, love, love their chicken pot pie. Serious chunks of chicken, carrots and peas in a creamy, rich sauce all baked in a flaky crust. My daughter had the tri-tip, my son, a hamburger w/bbq sauce and the hubby, a blackened chicken ceasar salad. We started with the fried mozarella...trust me, this is not your frozen cheese sticks like so many other places serve. This is the real deal! We got there just before 7pm on Saturday night, and we were seated within 5 minutes! Beat that! : )
Gold mining and dining unite at this kitschy all-American eatery.. In Short Established in 1977, the Claim Jumper draws families, seniors and professionals with a mix of Old-West decor and a reliable menu of American classics. Logs, corrugated tin, rock and warm fireplaces embellish the unique ambience. Signature plates include hickory-smoked pork ribs, rotisserie chicken and barbecued beef tri-tip; the menu also offers tortilla chicken soup, potpies, wood-fired pizzas, and the popular six-layer Chocolate Motherlode Cake. The saloon features appetizers and the restaurant's own brews.
