So, there we were my buddy and I standing on the corner of Broad and Locust trying to decide where to eat. Varalli's? Pretty good food but too pricey for us. Fado's? Too noisy. Good Dog? Best cheeseburger I've ever eaten, but way too noisy for two old guys. So, having never been there, we went to Montana Grill. Our waitress was adorable. Could have adopted her. She told us how everything was fresh. Only food in the freezer was ice cream. They did not serve rice in a bag, etc. We each ordered a house salad and a dinner entree. The house salad was served and right behind it was our main course!! Whoa nelly..that was fast! I had a wonderful sounding 1/2 roasted chicken. Turns out they were cooking this chicken since four days ago, it was so dry and bland. They probably started cooking the broccoli at the same time and been salting it for that long!! The garlic mashed potatoes were fine and the house salad was delicious. Believe me you could get better food at the Oregon Diner and certainly juicier chicken at DiBrunos. It has been years since I have been in a place that overcooked broccoli. My handsome dining partner had bison meat loaf. I did not try it, but he said it was very dry.
We knew better then to eat here especially on opening night for PARC Bistro.
Stick with Little Petes.
