I've always wanted to start this blog but time kept me from committing to it... we'll see how long I keep it up (full disclosure lol).
At a long day of cooking for other people the last thing we want to do is cook, so we do eat out a lot. Serving others is what we do best but putting our feet up at the end of the evening and letting someone else serve us is absolute heaven and that's what inspired this blog.
Today's featured restaurant is 9 South Chargrill. We love it. It's a standby for us when we are craving our favorite baked potato. Thursday night we took a relative and Jeff ordered first.. side salad with blue cheese, loaded potato with an extra side of chipotle aioli. My uncle closed his menu and said "bring me the same". Our server turned to me and I said, "Let's make it easy.. same here".
The potato is large and perfectly cooked every single time. Choices for proteins include chicken, pork or steak.. we always get the steak and again, it's always cooked to perfection. The potato is hidden at the bottom of the page so you have to look to find it.
Service..... A+ every single time. Even when they are swamped. Request the little four top in the corner.. the acoustics are the best and it gives a sense of privacy in an otherwise open space. Brett does something right with his team as staffing rarely turns over and you'll see familiar faces for years greeting you at the door- it's like coming home to family.
Other items I highly recommend... the waffle fry nachos.. share the small with a friend for a meal or be prepared to take the leftovers home. Cookie/ice cream dessert.. I have no idea what they call it but it's amazing and huge! Again be prepared to share it. Sometimes we will go after a long night just to grab a beer and dessert and we always order the same thing. Everything is made in house and it shows in taste and quality.
Keep up the good work Brett!!!!!
