@Widening Gyre, in the last 5 years there hasn't been anything served there that has been trucked in from Sysco. I can't speak for prior to that, but as a former kitchen staff employee everything (minus the rolls and dessert case) including the soups are made from scratch!
Because a lot of factory food is amped up with MSG -- soups almost always.
Next time you're there ask them if the food is cooked from scratch, on-premises. I've eaten there - I'll grant it's pretty good for institutionally prepared food that gets trucked in if that's stil what they're doing. And I think it is.
I'm getting a raw girls box shipped to me in Florida next week for my birthday! Yippee! Terrific article and fantastic photos! Make room Huey's...Memphis is about to go raw.
Why does it matter if it is just reheated from Sysco, if it is delicious?
All their food used to be from Sysco and just reheated/replated on premises. Has that changed?
Incredible story! You go ladies!!!!
Not a place for an intimate meeting...Much too noisy with the music at very high levels...Have to yell at whoever you are with to attempt verbal communication...I could not stand it... and left with headache
I used to love Kwik Chek but stopped going because their fountain drink machine was ALWAYS broken. Maybe it's been fixed by now.
Yum! Just what I'm looking for today.
Most if not all the CK's took cards, it's just that you had to pay a fee for it.
Everything in this article was pretty spot on except two things: A bocce set is actually a great example of something being pretentious, and evelyn and olive is just not the gem that people want to make it out to be. How many times can one visit a restaurant and have the food be just 'okay'.
Somebody spent a lot of money converting the long shuttered Krystal on Getwell, across from UofM South campus entrance, into a Dixie Queen. It really looked nice. Unfortunately about 2 months after it's opening last Spring, it closed. No closing signs are posted. It's like they just locked up and walked away. Even today the lights are still on in the building that hasn't been open in months. It's like everybody vanished. Does anyone know the story about this place?
Isn't that what we vote for at every chance???? that nothing will get better just worse? That there is called control and regulate and stop the little man from growth let him buy rather than sell....let him come work for us rather than do his own unless he is willing to be even more under our spell and RENT 365 days a year.
Exactly the same.?i was getting a bit distressed Knowing I had not eaten 80.00 worth of food in Germantown....they need to change their deposit information and not label themselves a GRIlL.
Phlo, if you asked the owner (Jeff) nicely, you still might get that massage....
We went for the couples spa package. I have no idea how I confused this place with Gould's.
Graeter's is amazing. My boyfriend took me there on a trip to Cincinnatti and I loved it.
Have to agree 100% with the other commenters. The service was lacking (Midtown location), food was amazing, but sweet Jesus it is not worth what they charge for it. For those prices they ought to be showing movies or something.
