The Story Behind Our Fried Shrimp!

Feb 16, 2017 -- Posted by : Annie

We often get reviews on our social media sites and sometimes even a letter thanking us for a great time or for participating in a fundraiser or other social event. Today I would like to share part of a letter from a great and forward thinking customer of ours. This young customer is from Wingate Elementary in Grand Junction Colorado. His school was practicing writing letters.

Pug Ryan's fried shrimp

Our young customer’s name is Mitchell. He wrote that he loves our beer battered Fish and Chips. He visits from his home periodically with his family. Mitchell is such a fan he bugs his dad until his family dines at Pug Ryan’s at least once during his visits. He also wrote how much he loves sinking his teeth into a nice piece of fish and enjoying the fresh air while sitting on one of our decks in the summer.

Dear Sirs:
My name is Mitchell Neil and my class is doing business letters. I love your restaurant and your fish and chips, my dad likes to pick up beers and bring them back to my house in Silverthorne. I go on vacation to Silverthorne and whenever I go I ask my Dad “Dad can we go to Pug Ryan’s before we go home?”
I also love sinking my teeth into a piece of fish and getting a wiff of the fresh air at the Tiki Bar. There is one thing I’d want at your restaurant though. Butterfly Shrimp with Cocktail sauce. I think it would make a great addition to the restaurant. Sincerely,

After his kind words and his positive review of Pugs, he had one new request. Mitchell would like to see fried Butterflied Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce on our menu. Sounds like another good thing to sink your teeth into. We listened, we worked with our Chef, and we have now released a new menu item. Our new Skewered, Beer battered, Butterflied Shrimp was added to our menu last month. Picture two 6 inch skewers with four shrimp on each one, dipped in our fresh made beer batter and fried to golden brown.

It just goes to show you, good communication skills, knowing what you want, and being a great customer of Pug Ryan’s, is the best way to have a great day. Thanks to our friend Mitchell. We hope to see you again soon.
