Joel Flanagan (Santino Fontana) is a rich spoiled lazy man/boy from a Mexican Fast Food Restaurant chain family.
The chain is losing money and his sister, Stacy (Kristen Dalton), wants him to work the Southwest finding new dishes for the chain to copy to hopefully start making money again.
Joel resists, but, finally, with the threat of losing his inheritance, he drives to New Mexico where he hears about a small restaurant with AMAZING food.
Javiera Torres (Dania Ramirez) divorced her cheating husband and opened a small restaurant in a town of 886 people (ooops, someone just had twins….888 people). Javiera is also raising a very smart young daughter, Sophia (Makenzie Moss).
Javiera is a fantastic chef and people come from everywhere to taste (and some to steal) her food.
Well….to make a long story short….Joel lands in town and is forced to stay. Not a problem since he has done his job finding new delicious food for the fast food chain to steal.
Sophia loves him…..while Javiera hates him…..then….
Oh, to see what happens you will have to watch the movie.
“Off the Menu” is a fun rom-com with a predictable result, but, getting there is a lot of fun….with great food. Needless to say: Joel grows up, Javiera allows herself to love again, and Sophia still loves “Galileo”.
Drive Safe! Never Forget.
