Swiftwater Brewing Company – Review

Swiftwater Brewing Company – Review

Continuing with our “brew house” theme, I got a direct message on Instagram imploring me to check out the plate at Swiftwater. I’m no stranger to Swiftwater Brewing and it had been on my list for a while; I just never got around to visiting. […]

Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint – Review

Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint – Review

Ah 2017, a simpler time. Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane before we get started on this one. I last reviewed Sticky Lips at their old location on Culver. Back then the plate cost me 13.99, which at the time I felt was […]

JB Quimby’s – Review

JB Quimby’s – Review

JB Quimby’s and I have a long history. When I worked in Henrietta, we would go there almost every Wednesday for the lunch special. I think it was 5$, but I could be mistaken; and it isn’t clear to me that they still run that […]

Dogtown Review II

Dogtown Review II

This is the beginning of a series I’m calling, “I revisit a place to give it a second look.” (I’m still working on the name.) I had the chance to check out Dogtown (again) after a long hiatus. I’ll say up front that I’m a […]

Old Stone Tavern – Review

Old Stone Tavern – Review

I had the chance to check out the recently opened “Old Stone Tavern” in the South Wedge. The Old Stone Tavern opened up in the old Orbs location and it’s been open about a year now. I’m so out of touch I didn’t even realize […]

McCann’s Local Meats – Review

McCann’s Local Meats – Review

I had a chance to check out McCann’s garbage plate offering a few weeks ago. I’ll save y’all some reading and say that it was one of the best plates I’ve ever had. This was another situation where someone contacted me on Instagram and let […]

Deli Sandro’s Review

Deli Sandro’s Review

I had the chance to check out the plate offering from Deli Sandro’s in the 19th Ward recently. If you don’t often venture to the 19th ward you may have missed this little gem. Known for their sandwiches, they also offer a plate. For $9.50 […]

Charlie Riedel’s – Webster

Charlie Riedel’s – Webster

On Instagram, I asked my followers to recommend plate places; and boy did they deliver. Charlie Riedel’s aka Charlie’s Restaurant, is the best basic plate I’ve ever had; bar none. It’s better than a lot of the “deluxe” plates I’ve had. There isn’t any one […]

Marshall Street – Review

Marshall Street – Review

And… we’re back! It’s been a long time since I had the pleasure of sitting down in front of a plate. I had a moment to myself so I decided to venture down to Monroe Ave and try out Marshall Street. I’d been meaning to […]

Culver Hots – Review

Culver Hots – Review

Lately I’ve been having trouble finding places to get plates. Which is not to say that I’ve tried everywhere; but I want to venture further out. Try places in different area’s that I haven’t tried before. With that in mind last week I decided to […]
