The Signs Are Everywhere You Look

Posted by LOTGK on May 21, 2011

Suicide Is Painless

Every Summer we venture out to Geneva-On-The-Lake (A local weekend vacation spot that time forgot) at least several times to get our fill of world-famous cheeseburger’s at Eddie’s Grill, super size french fries at Times Square Restaurant, and just plain old-fashioned good food down at the Old Firehouse Winery. I must have passed this sign at least one hundred times and never really took notice of it until the other day. It reminds me of the old television series M.A.S.H. and its iconic destination sign.

On a whim I decided to inspect the sign more closely. To my amazement, my secret Grassy Knoll Institute headquarters was listed on the sign. Holy Hell! How did Woody (The owner of Old Firehouse Winery) know the location of our secret lair?

However, I calmed down a bit after realizing that our headquarters were 666 and 2 tenths of a mile from the sign, not 666 miles listed on the sign. Our secret is still safe.

Speaking of secret places,

Geneva-On-The-Lake is open for business as I type.
If you like good food, visit one of the three places mentioned above.
If you like magic, visit Whipps Magic on the strip. Go there late at night, that’s when he’s open.
If you like Karaoke, Time Square restaurant lets you belt out your favorite tune nightly. If you like amusement park rides, sorry, Erieview Park was dismantled but the Ferris Wheel sill stands and is located on the cliff overlooking Lake Erie.
If you like donuts, visit Madsens.
If you like a good time, I’ll see you in Geneva.

Old Firehouse Winery Restaurant – Geneva

Posted by LOTGK on November 14, 2010

Old Firehouse Winery Menu

We decided to go to Geneva on Wednesday September 1st for one last hurrah for the Summer. I placed a call to Time Square restaurant to make sure they would be open knowing that most of the work force on the strip had went back to school. They assured me they would be open at 10 am and close later that evening. Into the car we went for the 90 minute drive. The photo below is what we found when we arrived. Time Square Restaurant was boarded up and closed. Apparently for the rest of the year.

Time Square Restaurant Closed

The bastards lied to us. However, the Grassy Knoll Institute always has a contingency plan. Right down the corner is the Old Firehouse Winery and Restaurant. We knew they were open. They stay true to their word.

Firehouse Winery Cheeseburger

We made the short trek to the winery and found the restaurant open of course. Martina was our waitress and spoke perfect Russian. And pretty good English as well. She brought us menu’s immediately and took our orders. I selected the “Zippo” cheeseburger. A half pound of pure ground beef, American cheese, chips and salsa. In less than ten minutes our order was delivered to our table. The cost was $8.25

The cheeseburger was cooked to perfection. The bun was fresh and warm. The taste was excellent. The beef had a unique taste and combined with the cheese and bun, it was high on the list for cheeseburger lore. I had a few chips because I also ordered the french fries.

Regular Order Fries

I also ordered a side of fresh cut french fries. The cost was $3.95 and let me tell you, they were well worth it. As you can see, the basket of fries were plentiful. They were well cooked, hot and crunchy, not burnt or soggy. I am always in search for the elusive Idora Park french fries and the Old Firehouse Winery came very close. They are the best fries on the Geneva On The lake strip. Better than Eddie’s Grill, better than Time Square Restaurant. There, I said it.

Chicken Tenders

My son also ordered the Chicken Tender strips. The cost was $7.35 for the order. My son stated that they were some of the best chicken tenders he ever had the pleasure to eat. All through our lunch, Martina was very attentive which is why she received a very generous tip.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 5 out of 5 shots and recommends The Old Firehouse Winery for lunch and dinner.

Time Square Restaurant Challenge

Posted by LOTGK on June 5, 2010

Time Square

Today we are going up against Eddie’s Grill, the iconic restaurant just down the parkway from Time Square. Both are located at Geneva-On-The-Lake, Ohio. Both restaurants serve up cheeseburgers, fries, and foot long hot dogs. Both are rich in tradition. Which one is the best tasting, best experience, best value. Lets have a look.

Here is the menu for Time Square Restaurant. 2010 is the first year I recall them having a printed menu. In previous years, the menu was always hand painted on a board outside in the seating area.

We placed our orders and usually we were handed a rock with a number painted on it. Not this year however. The waitress said she would find us when our order was ready.

The Cheeseburger

While waiting for our order, we were serenaded by karaoke singers. Time Square almost always has karaoke set up. Sometimes the singers aren’t half bad, some times they are horrible. That’s when it’s fun. When the singers are horrible. (Like me)

Our waitress found us about ten minutes into a rendition of Britney Spears and brought our order to our table. This is the cheeseburger. The cost was $4.50, compared to the $3.60 Eddie’s Grill cheeseburger. On a scale of 1 to 10, Time Square cheeseburger is a 5. It is standard fare as cheeseburgers go. The bun was fresh, the meat cooked well, the cheese melted and the taste over all was good. The Eddie’s Grill version is a 10. The bun fresh, the meat, not processed but fresh, well cooked, the cheese melted, and the taste was excellent. And it was 90 cents cheaper than Time Square.

The Regular Order

Moving on to the fries. Time Square is famous for it’s “Regular” order of fries. In years past, the order was huge,  a party of three could not finish. In the past several years, as with the economy, the order has shrunk in size. You can see the order is still large, but at $6.50 the price is a little steep. The taste was still there. They were fantastic. Crisp, well done, hot, and they have that old fashioned kind of taste. A far superior fry to Eddie’s grill.

Eddie’s Grill fries were $2.45 per order, and were good, but compared to Time Square, they did not stack up. Time Square’s triple order breaks down to about $2.17 per order.

Next, the Time Square foot long hot dog.  The cost was $4.25, 65 cents more  than Eddie’s Grill. The taste was good, the bun standard, but nothing spectacular. Eddie’s Grill foot long was $3.60 and tasted great. It was fresh, hot, well cooked, and the skin was just crunchy enough.

At Time Square, for three cheeseburgers, three foot long hot dogs, and the large order of fries, the cost was $32.75 without drinks.

At Eddie’s Grill, three cheeseburgers, three foot long hot dogs, and three orders of fries, the cost was, $28.95 without drinks.

Eddie’s Grill receives the winning marks for the value, a savings of $3.80 for a family of three, the atmosphere, (Original 1950’s diner) and the over all quality and taste of the food.

The Grassy Knoll Institute recommends both Time Square Restaurant and Eddie’s Grill located at Geneva-On-The-Lake  for lunch and dinner.

Eddie’s Grill Cheeseburger – Geneva On The Lake

Posted by LOTGK on May 28, 2010

Eddie's Grill Menu

Eddie’s Grill, Iconic restaurant located at Geneva-On-The-Lake is of course my choice for dinner while visiting there. Eddie’s Grill is always busy so be prepared for a pleasantly happy crowd. There is plenty of seating but most are usually taken. I was lucky to get a counter bar stool. The waitress took my order and after five minutes, it was delivered.

Cheeseburger - Foot Long - Fries

While waiting for my own order, I took in the ambiance of Eddie’s Grill. The cooks in white paper hats, the waitresses shouting out orders to the cooks, workers hustling around, cleaning tables and bringing out food. it was a scene right out of a 1950’s hamburger diner. And yes, there were plenty of “Fonzies” there.

Anyway, I ordered the cheeseburger, fries, and a foot long hot dog. My order was correct of course. It was on time, and fresh. The cheeseburger may have been the best I have ever tasted. And I have had plenty of them. The fries were hot, well cooked, and plentiful. I ordered the foot long as well just because. (When in Rome)

As you can see by the lighted menu board, the cheeseburger was $3.60, the fries were $2.45, and the foot long was $3.60 which are very good prices for the quality and quantity of food served.

My next update will be Eddie’s Grill rival, Time Square Restaurant, just a little ways down the parkway. I will match up item per item in taste, cost, service, and quantity, and quality. Who will win, check back in several days to find out.

The Grassy Knoll Institute scores 5 out of 5 shots and recommends Eddie’s Grill for lunch and dinner.

Coke Zero Balancing Act Video

Posted by LOTGK on March 28, 2010

This past Summer we visited Geneva On The Lake, a quaint local beach resort spot on shores of Lake Erie, Ohio. Patrick, the lead scientist of the Grassy Knoll Institute continued his research on the dynamics of gravity and carbonated liquid filled cylinders and caffeine. To correlate results from the first experiment, the same location, (Time Square Restaurant, Home of the largest order of french fries,) was chosen. However, this time, a can of Coke Zero was used instead of Classic Coke. The results were the same.

Notice the table was level, and no strings or pulley type devices can be seen. In a matter of seconds, Patrick balanced the Coke on its side and it did not tip over. He ran his hands over and around the can to prove that no strings or other devices were used to hold the can in place.

BTW, Yes, the fries were great as well as the cheeseburgers at Time Square Restaurant located in the heart of Geneva-On-The-Lake strip.
