This review was written earlier this year and posted on Yelp. I thought you might enjoy it.
Also, this restaurant gave me the idea for the name of this website, so that’s nifty.
Anyway, here’s the review.
Mainly Drinks Review (in La Porte, TX)
Since the restaurant is located in the small town of La Porte my expectations were not all that high. If they had brought out overcooked Hamburger Helper in the lid of an old shoe box I would have turned to my imaginary camera in the manner of Zack Morris, said something clever such as, “Welp. It’s a living,” and proceeded to eat the mess in front of me.
But no! It was nothing like this.
The staff are genuine and friendly people. And they wear real clothes, not some old overalls with grass stains and a broken shoulder strap like you might have expected. The restaurant is clean and dare I say… a little swanky. Good swanky though. Not like hipsters run the place.
Anyway, given my curious nature or ‘lazy brain’ as mum calls it, I have some questions for the server:
What’s the soup today?
What’s the special?
Why do you pound the chicken breast?
Can I see the hammer you use?
Eventually, I order the tenderloin with some kind of mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. After a reasonable time the food is brought out to me, and on a real plate no less! They really do know how to make me feel like a celebrity. And they let me use metal utensils. Now I know why Trump wanted to run for president. This is the life!
The meal was perfect. Excellent steak, potatoes, and vegetables. I’ll be back in a couple days for the next meal (on a plate!)
