I’ll admit – there was no way that I was going to Harrison Family Restaurant (where the old Perkins used to be) when there wasn’t a dedicated sign. Sorry, I don’t go to restaurants with cardboard handwritten signs in the window.
We went for a Sunday lunch (sorry, no website) – it’s set up just like Perkins used to be. Lots of space.
The menu was typical diner fare – sandwiches, breakfast, some “traditional” dinners (meatloaf, pasta, etc). Nothing crazy or fun – basic.
The husband has been on a diet so he asked if he could get egg whites or egg beaters substituted in the omelettes. Our server said no because it would be too difficult for the kitchen. Uh…okay.
So, he ordered the Chicken Delight (odd name choice, btw). He asked to replace the corn with extra grilled onions and peppers. This is what he got.
You can see how well that worked out for him. I guess the kitchen comes from a place of HELL no. He also ordered a salad that never came out (he was giving it to our daughter). We reminded our server and it came out with our main food.
It did have homemade croutons. With a crapton of iceburg lettuce and some nasty cucumbers (I hate cucumbers).
The rest of our meals all came with a complimentary cup of soup (it was chicken and rice that day). My kids refused it. I got it.
I’m going with canned.
The boy got a cheeseburger (surprised?)
He liked it.
The girl got a Chicken Ranch Wrap
She ordered the chicken crispy but it came out grilled. She said it was good (but not as good as my wraps…)
I ordered the BLT double decker.
It was fine – way too much lettuce. The fries were really frickin’ good (that we ALL agreed on). They were coated seasoned fries (like rally’s).
It was what you could expect from a diner. It still depresses me the lack of good restaurant choices that Harrison has. If I had the money (and the energy – I’m 39, people!), I’d totally open a restaurant there!
