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.

Hungry Howie’s Thin Crust Pizza

Posted by LOTGK on July 28, 2012

Hungry Howie’s Pizza Shop – Boardman, Ohio
When deciding on a pizza for dinner, several factors come into play.

One: First and foremost, the pizza must be good tasting.
Two: The pizza Ohio has to have a very quick take out service.
Three: The pizza box must be sturdy to survive the ride home.
Four: The pizza must be affordable.
Five: The pizza shop must be close by.

Hungry Howie’s meet these requirements. The thin crust is good tasting, not fantastic or exceptional, but good. The drive through pick up is pretty spot on. You pull up, they take your money and hand over the pizza. The box, yellow in color, is sturdy to handle rough roads and perhaps another box stacked on top and still the cheese will not be sticking to the top of the box. Howie’s is fairly cheap, and check on their weekly specials for some good deals. And the shop is only five minutes away from us.

BTW, the chicken nuggets, or strips, or tenders, whatever they call them, are not bad.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 4 out of 5 shots and recommends Hungry Howie’s for dinner.

Davidson’s Restaurant

Posted by LOTGK on July 26, 2012

Davidson’s Restaurant – Austintown, Ohio
From the looks of the restaurant, it appears small on the outside but once you walk inside, there are plenty of rooms with many a tables. Don’t be concerned if the parking lot is full, there will be a table for you inside.

This evening I was intrigued by one of the appetizers, the “Mini Corndogs.” Yes, corndogs! There were 10 of them, dipped in batter and browned to a nice crunch. I was surprised at how good they were.

My main course was the half pound bacon cheeseburger with fair fries. The burger was well done as specified, the bun fresh, the cheese melted and thank goodness the bacon was cooked. (I hate when I order a bacon cheeseburger and there is soggy uncooked bacon on top) The burger was delicious.

The fries to my surprise, were fantastic. I am in search of the elusive “Idora Park” french fry taste and this night was the closest I came. On a Idora Park scale of 1 to 10, these fries were a 9. The texture, the taste, the look, feel, the presentation, all Idora Park like. Only thing missing was the white paper cone holder that Idora fries came in.

Completing the meal was a slice of cheesecake topped with strawberries. It was very good and ended the meal on a high note.

The reason for 4 stars and not 5, the service is a tad lacking. No offense to the wait staff, they are working hard, but they are spread to thin. Our waitress was covering an entire room, which was to much for one to handle. Management needs to add more help.

O’Charley’s Restaurant – Steak And Chicken

Posted by LOTGK on June 24, 2012

O’Charley’s Potato Soup

Patty and I stopped at O’Charley’s restaurant chain last week for a bite to eat. It was not crowded, but it was busy but we were seated immediately. Our waiter came right over and took our drink order and returned promptly with them.

Our waiter returned with our drinks and took our order. I had the potato soup and it tasted good. Plenty of chunks of potato, creamy sauce, and bacon scattered on top.

O’Charley’s Steak

Renee brought out our dinner in a timely manner smiling and having a good time. I ordered the sirloin and chicken combo with a baked potato.
The chicken strips were lightly battered, well cooked, crispy, and surprisingly good.
The 6 ounce sirloin was cooked perfectly, juicy, no fat, and tasted great.
The baked potato topped off the meal. There was no room for dessert.

The service was fantastic all the way around, the experience was very pleasant, the prices reasonable, including diet pop but not tip under $20 dollars, and the food tasted great and was prepared perfectly.

San Francisco Chinese Pizza

Posted by LOTGK on May 29, 2012

Chinese Pizza – San Francisco

Walking the streets of San Francisco, I happened upon this pizza shop in an out-of-the-way corner. I was hungry and decided to enter. It did not have the appearance of a standard pizza shop, but hey, there was a picture of a slice of pizza on the sign outside so it had to be good, right! I ordered a slice of cheese pizza with sausage and pepperoni.

I’ll Have A Slice

This is what I got. I will say, it mostly resembled a slice of pizza, it certainly was triangular, and flat. But I was looking for taste. And,… well,… it wasn’t awful. It was warm, which was a plus, the crust wasn’t stale, the sauce from a jar, the cheese from a bag, but all in all, it wasn’t awful. The price, $3 dollars, which, in San Francisco and being hungry, wasn’t awful.

To sum up. It wasn’t awful.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 2 out of 5 shots and does not recommend Shawerma Chinese Pizza for dinner.
