Yes we did go through T2. We booked the Meet and Greet through Holiday Extras as it is exactly the same as booking through the Airport's website but tends to be cheaper as long as you see the Manchester Airport logo above the price. If you go through Martin Lewis' website they offer a further discount so cheaper still.

DAY TWO.
IHOP AND APPLEBEES


So the traditional early morning start, from memory this was a 5 a.m get up so potted around for a bit before heading up to IHOP.
This is the only breakfast we ate in a restaurant as the rest of the time we just had it at the Villa. Now the one we go to has always been the one on the 192 just beside the junction with Old Lake Wilson Road with the new Walmart. The food has always been good and the service excellent.
This year I ordered an Orange juice which was refreshing and we shared a Never Ending Coffee Pot. This is the only place I have a Coffee while in the States, it really is that good!
Now to the important part; the food.
Elaine went with a Create Your Own Combo and had Sausage Eggs and Hash Browns with Strawberry Banana Pancakes




While I went with the Ultimate Combo(3 strips of Bacon 3 Sausages 2 eggs and Hash Browns) with Mexican Churro Pancakes




As always the food was excellent and the portions absolutely massive. The pancakes were lovely and light with plenty of fruit on Elaine's and lots of fresh tasting Churros on mine. Needless to say neither of us could finish it as our stomachs needed to get used to American size portions and it kept us going all day and only started felling hungry until sevenish.

We decided to head up to Applebees at Berry Town Center for our evening meal. I always find it interesting how one franchise of the same restaurant chain differs greatly from another a couple of miles away. We have yet to have a bad meal or service at Berry yet I know from others that the one a couple of miles away on the 192 is not particularly pleasant.
Anyway decided that I would be the driver tonight so Elaine went for a Michelob Ultra and was presented with this



This is called a Mega Beer and was absolutely massive. When we got the bill it was only $5.70, an absolute bargain!
We decided on having a starter and were thinking of just Chips and Salsa but chose to go for the Nachos with Chipotle Lime Chicken instead.




I really can not stress how amazing these were. Quite frankly I could have eaten them all night and was now very jealous of Elaine as they would be fantastic with a beer
These were quickly polished off in time for the mains
Elaine went for her usual here which is a Bourbon Street Steak with Roast Potatoes and Onions



For me I went for the BBQ Brisket Tacos with Fries and Coleslaw



Although its cheap and cheerful the food quality is always good here. Both meals were extremely tasty in good surroundings with an attentive staff.
Again neither of us could finish the meals due to portion size but give it a couple of days and our bellies will become accustomed to American sized portions. Bring it on!

Thanks
If they are still on the menu go for the Nachos! Do I give the impression I loved them?

Great start.

Ill have to remember that tip about the local of ihop as the last couple of times (except this very last trip) we have been we found it to be dirty and not great food or service.

Looking forward to reading more!

Loving the beer glass, the nachos looked fab too. Both your meals in Applebees and IHOP look lovely.
Hope you get sorted out with your leg.
