At long last, back from a four month hiatus, the blog returns….
It takes a truly remarkable topic to be the post after such a long lay off, and the Roast Grill is just such a topic. I had passed by the small, unassuming restaurant a number of times, but had never darkened the door. So, when a quick lunch meeting with Tony became possible, we both agreed that The Roast Grill was the perfect, long over due choice. There are maybe 15 seats in the entire place, including the bar. The first thing that catches your attention is all that the eatery does not serve including: ketchup, fries, cheese, mayo, kraut, sweet tea, or chips. Also, don’t plan on using the plastic there. The Roast Grill is a cash only establishment. What the Grill does have is hot dogs, and a 70 year old chili recipe that is worth the trip. The hot dogs were perfect and the chili was amazing. The glass bottled Coca-Cola’s seemed to fit as well. So, if you haven’t been, do yourself a favor and swing by the Roast Grill. The food is wonderful and the unpretentious atmosphere is even better. (Just make sure to not ask for ketchup!)
