HOUSTON, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheeseburger in Paradise, the 10-year-old, tropical bar and grill chain, has introduced a major menu revision in collaboration with parent company, Luby's, Inc. The rollout began in mid-summer with test marketing at its Secaucus, NJ and Indianapolis, IN locations. The result is an offering of 50 items, which encompass both brand new dishes and reinvented favorites, crafted by Cheeseburger in Paradise Executive Chef Andrew Larue.
According to Peter Tropoli, Luby's Chief Operating Officer, "With enhanced ingredients and offerings, our goal is to build on the festive atmosphere, delicious burgers and cool cocktails that the brand has become known for. We look forward to ongoing feedback from our customers that will continue to guide the taste of Cheeseburger in Paradise."
This culinary calypso is intended to bring diners more of what they love with a boat full of coastal and beach-inspired items. It also welcomes two key burger upgrades: fresh and never frozen, 100% USDA premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives, plus buns that are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Sliders, sweet potato chips and loaded nachos return by popular demand, while additions include Volcano Nachos served with BBQ pulled pork or BBQ pulled chicken for $9.99, Shrimp Po'Boy served with a choice of side for $10.99, Island Scampi Pasta with veggies for $9.99 (chicken and blackened shrimp add on options available), Malibu Salad with applewood smoked bacon for $8.99 and Hawaiian Delight, a house-made coconut and pineapple pie, for $4.99.
