I’m back from my trip! If you follow me on Instagram, you’d know that I took a cross country road trip. I had a ton of fun but there wasn’t much time to blog. Now that I’m back, I need to catch up on the places that I have in my backlog.
So a few weeks ago I took another trip to Marshall Street. I’ll be honest, this was more for me than it was for my blog, but I figured that since I was in there I may as well do a write-up. For $12.00 you can get the “Mauna Loa Volcano Plate”, which is probably the most creative plate name I’ve seen in recent memory.
HEALTH INSPECTION NOTES:
From an inspection dated on November 12, 2020 they had one critical violation as well as six non-critical violations. This is high, and digging through their history this is not the first they’ve been dinged by the health inspectors. I’m going to deduct a full point from their composition score which is my custom. I’m sure their food is safe, but these inspections are not a good look.
Meat (Cheeseburgers): 3
I would describe their burgers as “mediocre”. It’s unfortunate because their plate is otherwise outstanding. These are clearly frozen patties that they throw on a flat top.
Meat Sauce: 5
The meat sauce here is quite good. They give you a ton of it too. I think you’d be hard pressed to find a place that is this generous with their meat sauce.
Potato Side (Home fries): 5
Ladies love a waffle fry.
Mac Salad: 5
I enjoyed the mac salad, it’s a bit heavy on the mayo, but it’s otherwise quite good. It compliments the plate well and adds a nice texture.
I did not receive bread with my order.
Portion Control/Composition: 4
I initially had this as a five, for health reasons, I’ve gone ahead and deducted a point. With that said, they give you a ton of food and it’s hard to finish. The nacho cheese sauce is super slutty and a nice touch.
Overall Score: 4.4
Not much has changed since my 2018 review. This is still a great place to get a unique and different plate. There are some health issues which I noted earlier that should be cause for concern.
