This was our first visit to this chain restaurant, although I know someone whose favorite memory of working there during college (at another nearby location a few years ago) was the pleasure of handing a to-go order on Valentine's Day to none other than John Elway (Denver Broncos QB & two-time back-to-back Super Bowl Champion), who loves their food & was very personable.
We'd just spent a big chunk of our Saturday at the Denver Zoo, & real homemade food sounded great. The menu is large & varied, & I ordered Fried Green Tomatoes as our appetizer, which for $5.99 with 6 thick slices coated in a slightly spicy cornbread mixture & a small boat of ranch, was really, really good!
David ordered the Pot Roast & Meatloaf Combo with two sides, dressing & squash casserole, for $13.89. I decided on the Irish Pie ($11.00), which is their unbelievably tender Pot Roast layered with green beans, carrots, onions---topped with a thick layer of homemade mashed potatoes with lots of cheddar cheese over that. My sides were the squash casserole & cinnamon apples. Both entrees came with homemade yeast rolls & cornbread muffins, served with lots of soft whipped butter & Colorado honey.
We loved everything about our dinners, including the quick service! Our server, Yuli, was always smiling, helpful, & we appreciate very much that she served us our appetizer & allowed us to finish it before bringing our entrees out.
The squash casserole is simply melt-in-your-mouth goodness! Absolutely one of the best-tasting side dishes we've ever had, anywhere.
This restaurant has about 15 side dishes, so there's literally something for everyone. A vegetarian can enjoy a meal of 5 sides, or 3 sides with a salad or bowl of soup; I nearly chose that myself! The soups sounded great, too, including a Chicken Tortilla (my favorite), broccoli & cheese, etc. Everything here tastes so fresh & homemade!
Our receipt had a nice surprise, too---bring it in for 10% off through 10/1/17---you don't have to ask us twice, we'll definitely be back soon for all that deliciousness! We just wish we had tried this restaurant so much sooner!
