Descriptive Essay: Eating At The Broadway Grill

Decent Essays
I work all over Oakland County and I eat in a lot of different cities. But I always find myself wanting to eat at the Broadway Grill in Lake Orion. This establishment is very clean, and the staff is warm and friendly from the moment I walk in the door. The price range is from $10-$15 for a lunch selection, and you always get your money's worth. Their salads have fresh tomatoes and don't just include the usual iceberg lettuce, but hearty leafy greens. They also give you a basket of Italian bread fresh out of the oven with something I haven't seen anywhere else--an olive oil plate with marinara sauce placed right in the middle.

While I have had a few of their entrees--burgers, pizza (which is excellent), and my personal favorite, chicken parmesan--today I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. When I got my order, while the meal was good, I didn't think the meatballs were anything special. They almost seemed a bit bland to me. They

A cool thing about this restaurant is, no matter what time of day, or the amount of people there are, they always make you feel like you are valued customer. Another thing that I like is that they have a beautiful full bar, and have TVs in every corner with games on.

Now you might wonder what makes me a meatball expert. Well, I have had some of the best. My wife's 93-year-old Italian grandfather made us homemade meatballs that were off-the-charts fantastic. Even my wife whips up meatballs that smoke any restaurant, along with her mother and father. So, I have had authentic homemade cuisine from an Italian family, and now feel I have a benchmark to compare the rest.

As for the meatballs at the Broadway Grill, I give the spaghetti and meatball plate a 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. The restaurant overall though, deserves an A+ rating for its service, menu selections, and comfortable

    The meats are either marinated, come with sauce, or just straight as it is, with dipping oils and sauce that you can mix along with it. With that being said, the food is just delicious! Meat quality is pretty good for a place that isn’t fine dining, and anyone that loves meat is surely to find something they like on the menu. Being that I’m still in college without a job, I usually elect to go for the cheapest package, the Nevada package, and yet, I’m still able to eat really delicious food to my heart’s content. Something that some restaurants suffer from is food portions.…

    The burger meat was really thick and juicy, and it when you bite into it, there was a strong smokehouse flavor in the meat. They used a good grade of meat and it was piping hot it almost burn my tongue, but I didn’t care because the taste was breath taking. To say the burger had so much on it, it did not look sloppy it was put together well. The bacon was thick and they didn’t spare no sides. After I was done with the burger there was still some yummy pieces of bacon and peppers it was that good.…

    Lots of restaurants are serving pork tenderloin meals at a reasonable price. However, it would be a lot of fun for you and your family to try out the weeknight porchetta. This may be a classic Italian dish for most people, but this is something that was cooked outside of the box. Adding it with bacon, rosemary and other ingredients would do the trick. The preparation time for the weeknight porchetta meal is at least almost an hour.…

    Take the simple elegance of a Neapolitan pizza, Americanize it and jam it in a pan, then bury it under a pile of cheese and chunky tomato sauce and you have Chicago 's most famous contribution to the world pizza pantheon. Though short on sophistication, it 's a dish that 's long on pure joy… This is one of Chicago 's titans of deep dish, and the chain 's new restaurant at Uptown Plaza will be the 46th branch, but the first outside the greater Chicagoland area (1). This particular deep-dish pizza is quite different in its appearance, but does not account for its taste. The unusual flakey crust surrounds the dish and once a bite is taken the crust melts similar to the cheese.

    I tried three different kinds of pizza - the cheese, pepperoni, and finally the meat lovers. Though all the deep dish pies were tremendous with their glazed brown crust and sauce smoothly layered on top, the meat lovers pizza was my favorite. The comely toppings exploded into the air and you could taste each one with every bite. The spicy Italian sausage had juice squeeze out between your…

    The meat sauce was a little more difficult to make since I had to make it from scratch. Typically, when I make spaghetti and meat sauce, I purchase Ragu’s Garden Combination sauce. I found a really good recipe for meat sauce from scratch. I purchased all of my ingredients from Kroger as well. The recipe called for ground beef, 1 chopped onion, 4 cloves of garlic, 1 small green bell pepper diced, diced tomatoes (they said to use a can, I used fresh tomatoes and diced them myself), oregano, basil salt and pepper.…
