Claim Jumper Restaurant Complaint - Pork Ribs
CLACKAMAS, OREGON -- July 14, 2007, Claim Jumper Restaurant, 9085 SE Sunnyside, Clackamas, Oregan 97015, is located outside the Clackamas Mall. The Claim Jumper is a new restaurant with a mining theme. The night we were there the place was jam packed and we waited one hour and forty-five minutes to be seated. Crazy, I know, but we wanted to try it out. After being seated at a booth in the cavernous restaurant, we looked through the large menu from which I chose the 1/2 Rack Pork Rib dinner with steak fries and a corn muffin. In half an hour our food arrived. My half rack of ribs filled my plate with just enough room for my fries. They looked appealing so I jumped right in and took my first bite. Not bad flavor, but tough meat. The ribs were over cooked. The outer meat was pork jerky and the meat on the bone was a bit stringy. The BBQ sauce was a bit tangy and the taste reminded me of something out of a bottle like you can buy at the supermarket. The fries were done to perfection and the corn muffin was heavy, probably weighing in at half pound if I had a scale to weigh it. The cost: 1/2 rack pork ribs $21.95, plus a Jumpers Gold Margarita $8.25. Other dinners purchased: Salmon Dinner $22.95 and 1/2 Country Fried Steak $13.25 with a Strawberry Shake $5.25. Total dining experience $71.65. Save your money and SKIP the Pork Ribs, definitely not worth trying and quite expensive.
Claim Jumper probably is a gold mine for the owners, but not a good value.
