As a kid, I witnessed my mother constantly picking up brochures and reading random tidbits of interesting information. Clearly that stuck with me because today I do the same thing.

I’m glad I came across an email that featured Grub House.

Always looking for someplace good to eat dinner and/or lunch, I suggested Grub House as a possible location for a lunch meeting. My associate agreed, and we trekked to 19th and College Avenue to the new neighborhood eatery.

I’m not quite sure when Grub House officially opened its doors, but local residents and folks who clearly left the office to eat there for lunch have discovered it and love it. The restaurant was packed.

My colleague went out on a limb and ordered the “Philly Cheese House” (or a classic Philly cheesesteak sandwich) and I ordered the fried perch. The restaurant had typical fountain drinks, but since there was Kool-Aid on the menu, we certainly ordered the childhood favorite. She had “red” and I had grape.

Our server jotted down our order and quickly rushed back into the kitchen to get our order started.

In between talking business, I was able to look further at the menu. For those who work a late shift or enjoy eggs any time of day, Grub House serves breakfast all day. You can get breakfast entrees that serve items such as country style bacon, a salmon croquette, or pork or turkey chops. These items and more are served with side item such as fried potatoes, buttered rice, grits or a fruit cup.

You’ll also find pancakes, french toast and a Belgian style waffle on the menu.

Turn the menu over and you’ll discover lunch and dinnertime goodies such as chicken wings and a club sandwich. Grub House also serves four kinds of hamburgers. The Ralo’s Burger seems like pure sin on a bun: two beef burger patties, two fried eggs, lettuce, tomato and ketchup.

At Grub House, you can also order filling items such as the Blooming Spud made with chicken, broccoli and cheese; a hot dog with all the trimmings; a cobb salad; or a Caesar salad.

I didn’t have long to look at the menu and chat because within about 10 minutes of ordering, our food was on the table. My associate said her sandwich was delicious and my perch was seasoned and fried perfectly. It came with a cup of coleslaw that was incredible.

My Kool-Aid was perfect too.

I strongly suggest you try Grub House. There aren’t a plethora of new restaurants near the Recorder office so I’m glad Grub House is close, serves good food, and provides speedy service. I also love Grub House because they have a good mix of classic items, but have thought outside of the box to offer unusual menu items.

What I also like about Grub House is that it brings something new to that part of College Avenue. I’m sure residents are pleased.

And of course the cherry on top of this restaurant – the Kool-Aid!
