2019 Restaurant News

Four new lunch stops and a secret, hidden gem of a Pho shop that was sequestered from the GLOB Master has sprouted over the Winter holidays. That means I am more than a little excited about checking out the three new Asian lunch stops and I am looking forward to experiencing the Big Dick Special!

 

Dick Mondell's opens near SW 4th. apts.

January 14, 2019: Dick's Mondell's Burgers and Fries recently opened on SW 4th Ave. in the slowly developing 4th Ave. Food Park area near the 2nd Avenue Centre apartments. With the featured entrée titled The Original Big Dick hamburger this walk-up, drive thru window lunch stop is a name dropping treat from their meatless Impossible Burger, to Joyce Farms humanely raised and antibiotic free chicken. Continuing a contemporary, environmentally correct approach to lunch DMBF also features Wainwright Dairy ice cream and milkshakes Joyce Farms Chicken Burgers, Deep River Kettle cooked potato chips, sweet potato tots, natural cut fries, and garden and grain salads and Opus Dark Star coffee. NOTE TO DICK: Open daily at 11:00 this lunch stop would be the PERFECT drive thru early morning breakfast drive thru . . .:)
