Mema's Family Dinner, St Rd 17 Satsuma N. FL. It's the best restaurant in town! Well, actually it's the only restaurant in town but they just repainted the joint and there's hardly any cockroaches anymore. You can't go wrong with their tasty swiss mushroom cheese burgers w/ a side of crispy sweet potato fries but just to play it safe, order it well done. Try not to upset Mary Jay and stay away from the $7.99 grouper special, it's really some sort of Malaysian catfish according to an inside source. Good Luck.
Here in the Chattanooga, TN area:
Rib & Loin- for great, slow cooked BBQ/chicken, along with great homestyle veggie sides, a great stop.
Biba's Italian- simply awesome
El Meson- Mexican
Rain Thai Bistro- Best sushi and Thai I've ever had.
On my travels to a couple of places:
John's Bar- Wow!!!
The Shack- AMAZING chicken and bbq for a western area.
I stayed in downtown Chattanooga a few years ago and could not find anything impressive to eat on that trip. Thanks for the tips.
Finally got around to trying Which Wich yesterday. Good sandwiches. I ordered a sandwich with three meats (ham, turkey and bacon), two cheeses, mustard, vinegar/oil, salt/pepper. Sounded good at the time -- and it was good -- but, while I was waiting, discovered they have a sandwich with five meats and three cheeses. Sandwich failure. I got shorted two meats (roast beef, pepperoni) and a cheese.
Went back today and got the big one. It was even better.
I tried that place about two weeks ago. They do make a good sandwich and I did my research so I knew about the big 5 meat sandwich when I went it. One complaint though is they build the sandwich wrong. They cut the bread down one side and lay the bread down on it's other side. Then they put the meat and cheese on and last the veggies on top of that. When you go to eat the sandwich you have meat on one side and veggies on the other. I don't really like how meat is on the right side and the left side is all lettuce and toppings. I will try it again. This was a newly opened location so maybe they just need more training.
I just skip the veggies. I like salads ... just not on my sandwich.
I went to the one downtown. Sandwich seemed reasonably well built -- meat was evenly distributed. No lettuce to dilute it. Good balance, too. Not too much pepperoni ... overdo the cured meats, and you can't taste anything else.
I liked it better than Quiznos, which was my previous sub sandwich-maker of choice. Not better than the best Schlotzkys ... but better than some of the not-so-good Schlotzkys locations. Wonder if Which Wich has hot sauce like Schlotzkys. That might push it over the edge.
I really like lettuce and bell peppers on mine. I also went to the downtown location. When I was eating it I kept thinking it needed some hot sauce.
I went to the Schlotzkys in downtown today for lunch they do have great Louisiana hot sauce.
Been there a couple times, prefer Firehouse though
Firehouse is great! Like Jersey Mike's too. I'd say any place that gives yo a tasty meal, and later provides you with a good solid dump is a manly eatery.
Greetings From Kansas City Missouri,
Some of my favorite local joints are some what famous. I'll give you all a rundown by food type.
Bar-be-que: Gates and Sons or Arthur Bryants, Both old school temples of smoked meat. If you have never had Burnt Ends You have not lived.
Pizza: Grinders, the owner is an insane welder/sculptor named Stretch. They have great pizza, a killer selection of beer on tap from some truly innovative breweries and a truly fun ecclectic atomsphere. Stretch built his beer tap out of an old Acetylene tank. That was tonights dinner in fact.
Burgers: Hi-Boy, actually in my home town of Independence, MO a close suburb of K.C. '50's era burger joint Since 1957. Some things never change.
As a huge fan of my local eateries I go as often as my wallet and pants size allows.
