mmm-yoso!!! is the name of this blog. Kirk, Ed(from Yuma) and Cathy share blogging responsibilities. Today, Cathy is responsible for yet another East County chicken and fried zucchini post.
Yes, I have posted about this restaurant before, in 2006. I wrote another post, in 2008 showing similar food items consumed here. So, there's been a time lag, new signage, a website and yet the quality and menu of items offered has remained unchanged. (Prices have increased though.)
This restaurant used to be a Foster's Freeze stand-alone location for more than 20 years and the footprint of the store, including the front counter, drive through, ice cream machine, kitchen and dining area remain unchanged. A nice change is that there are people cleaning and bussing the tables; you don't have to clean up after yourself.
A recent order: the medium Greek chicken salad ($10.25)(accompanied by the fresh, warm pita and house made tzatziki), an order of fried zucchini ($2.75) (accompanied by a nice Ranch dressing)...
and a gyros sandwich ($6.45). This was a large, filling, tasty meal which ended up with leftovers we took home for a later snack.
As always, the chicken is marinated, juicy, tasty. It is grilled and served warm on top of a Greek style salad (lettuce, tomato, onion, Feta, herb dressing). The zucchini sticks are breaded with a fresh herb-breadcrumb mix and fried just right- crispy and not oily and served with a Ranch type dip. The pita bread and gyros is consistently fresh and tasty and served with the house made tzatziki.
Another local place that has been here more than a decade.
