Cheddars Restaurant – Chicken And Ribs

Posted by LOTGK on September 18, 2013

The first time I went to Cheddars Restaurant it was a very good experience. The food was good, the service great, and the place clean. The second time however, well….

We did get seated right away, however, our waitress took over ten minutes to stop by and ask us what we wanted to drink. We had already made up our minds what we wanted for dinner and proceeded with not only the drinks but dinner as well. I went with the chicken and ribs combo.

Twenty minutes later my dinner arrived. It looked good. It smelled good. But….

In a nutshell, the chicken was under cooked, well, it was barely cooked. The breading was soggy and the inside chicken was cold and chewy. Not a good sign.

The ribs were supposed to be “Fall off the bone” tender. They were not. It was a challenge to get the meat off the bone.

The saving grace was the dessert, croissant rolls. They were tender, flaky, hot, and very good.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 2.5 out of 5 shots and recommends Cheddars for dinner just because of the previous experience.

Eddies Grill – Geneva – Double Cheeseburger

Posted by LOTGK on June 16, 2013

Eddie’s Grill Counter

This was my first visit to Geneva for the 2013 Summer season and it began on a sad note. Coming into Geneva, I spotted the empty lot on the lake side of the road where an old little gray house once stood. It had lost its battle to erosion.

I needed some cheering up and Eddie’s Grill was just the “Cow Bell” to do it. We luckily found a parking spot on the parkway and walked over to Eddie’s. We bellied up to the counter and I ordered the usual. (A double cheeseburger, french fries, and a diet pop) The hot dog was my sons.

As soon as you sit down at the counter, you get the feeling of being magically transported back in time to the 1950′s. I always expect to see Fonzie smacking the jukebox to play his favorite song. Aeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

As usual, the cheeseburger was almost heavenly, cooked to perfection, juicy, and fresh. The fries were good and plentiful. The atmosphere out of this world. Even though Eddie’s is always crowded, the service is very fast.

The Boys Of Summer will be going back again next week.

Steak N Shake – Double Cheeseburger

Posted by LOTGK on June 13, 2013

The Double cheeseburger

Is Steak N Shake a fast food joint or a restaurant?
From the outside it has the markings of a fast food setup with a drive through window. However, when walking inside, the decor is 50’s style diner, black and white tiles, booths, and even a counter to eat at.

We sat down and a waitress took our order. Chalk one up for restaurant. I ordered a double cheeseburger and fries. It was brought to our table in less than ten minutes. (Another restaurant feature) The cheeseburger was excellent, in the top 10 list for sure. I watched them make the burgers on the grill before. They start with a fresh round ball of meat and using the spatula, smash into a thin patty. A few minutes of sizzling and the patty is flipped. Cheese is added and then placed on the bun.

The fries were thin cut, (We will call them Mini Fries) and were tasty especially with the dipping cheese sauce.

The cost was very cheap, (A fast food feature) $4.00 with fries. We paid and left a higher than usual tip for our waitress and walked out the door.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 4.75 out of 5 shots and recommends steak N Shake for dinner.

Geneva On The Lake House Vanishes

Posted by LOTGK on June 7, 2013

I have been going to Geneva On The Lake for over 50 years. Way back in the 1970’s erosion from Lake Erie began affecting the beach and the highway that leads into the small resort town.

One house I always kept my eye on coming in was a small gray house on the lake side of the road. Every year, the house edged closer to the sea. The houses on either side of the gray house methodically succumbed to the ravages of the sea.

Last year, the little gray house was on the verge of dropping over the side. It was now abandoned, windows boarded up, doors nailed shut, a mobile home sharing the lot. Last week coming in for our first Summer visit to Geneva, the house was gone.

To me, that house was almost as iconic to Eddie’s Grill, the most popular joint at Geneva On The Lake. I stopped, snapped the photo above and continued to Geneva looking back in the rear view mirror once or twice before pressing on to Eddie’s Grill.

The Peddler Steakhouse – Gatlinburg

Posted by LOTGK on May 28, 2013

When in Gatlinburg, you must make time to eat at the The Peddler Steakhouse. Yes, it is always crowded, but the wait is worth it.

Tip #1: To avoid a potential long wait period, simply go into the bar / lounge area and take an open table. Usually there is a table or two open. From there, simply place your dinner order when the waitress comes by.

We took the lounge option and and found a table upstairs. The view is nice, overlooking a small river running beside and under the restaurant.

As on cue, the waitress asked if we were here for dinner or just drinks. We choose option dinner and drinks. After we ordered, we headed downstairs to the salad bar. And when I say salad bar, I mean amazing salad bar. As you can see by the pictures, I had of course lettuce as a base, several types of cheese, carrots, celery, hard boiled egg halves, green olives, real chopped bacon, (Not the cheap fake bacon bits from other salad bars) and about another half dozen items piled high on my salad plate. The salad was tremendous.

As if on cue, as soon as we finished our salads, our steaks were delivered. I order the Filet Mignon well done and butterflied and a baked potato. The steak was cooked perfectly and it tasted fantastic. No doubt the best steak in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The baked potato was well cooked and smothered with butter which was perfect.

For dessert, we shared a piece of cheesecake covered with strawberries. It was the perfect topper for a splendid meal.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 5 out of 5 shots and recommends The Peddler Steakhouse for dinner.
