I have been going to LG for many years now, mainly for the fantastic homemade pizza, great wings, great beer and super-friendly service. Other great food items are the Reuben, pizza rolls and fried pickle chips. I have seen some enormous beautiful salads come out - but usually I can't resist the incredible pub fare. The old location was a neighborhood favorite, and the new location is no different. I was a little hesitant to brave the crowds in the opening days, but I have been 3 times now with little or no waiting whatsoever. It is larger inside than you think. The new location (just across the street, at the edge of the Lowe's parking lot) has many improvements but has also successfully maintained much of the charm of the previous location. New: Rooftop area with it's own bar has kind of a "tiki" look and is relaxed and friendly; outdoor Smoker's Patio downstairs has it's own TV's and is a great solution for both those who do and do not smoke; private room which can accomodate parties up to about 50 people. Best of the old: The menu, the original pizza oven (did I mention I love the homemade pizza), many of the "unique" decorations, most/all of the bartenders, and of course the owner Ted who often stops just to chat and see how things are going with the customers. The new Lynnwood is definitely worth checking out if you are looking for a great meal at a great price, want to catch up on sports & news on all the TVs, listen to great music or see old friends!
I had the recent pleasure of finding a little known place called "The Point" If you dont know exactly where it is, you may drive right by it! (I have 100 times! the regulars know where it is though!) Its at 5 Points, next to Rialto Theater, & we all know where that is. I happen to go to Rialto on a date & was quite pleased to discover this cozy, comfortable, laidback & DELICIOUS restaurant! I was so impressed that I asked to meet the Chef. Although Chef Alan Phillips hasent been at "The Point" for quite a long time, you can tell by his cuisine...he's been there long enough to prove he's not an amatuer & takes pride in what he does! Chef takes his menu quite serious & you can taste it in all he offers on his menu! From his daily specials (which are out of this world) to pizza(I noticed the pizzas are cooked in a wood fire brick oven, cozy!) pastas, seafood & prime rib on Friday! There is something for everyone on this menu! This place is so affordable & fun to be at, its no wonder its always so busy! I notice they dont take reservations right now, but my bet is; with Chef Alan Phillips being there..they soon will!
Large store with much non-food or standard supermarket merchandise in addition to complete standard selection. Has best supermarket flower store in Triangle, within the floral goods carried, and this is due to knowledgeable personnel. Radio Shack is attached to store, and Borders and Staples are adjacent. US Post Office is connected to NW corner of store. Excellent dairy products selection secondary to attentive workers, that are not present for whatever reason at other local supermarkets (including some other Kroger stores). Has large lunchtime crowd of salad bar and deli customers, but at other times is not full, probably because the adjacent area is not high density residential occupancy. Hence, save on Tuesday, shoppers plan and come with lists throughout the week and at times convenient to them. Since this is 24 hour operation which has customers present every day and night, it also is a safe venue. Hope this store is convenient for your needs, and review helpful. pjamesb
