^^The above posts are why MC and I eat 90-95% of our meals at home.

I'm doing better about that.  I never add salt to any meal I prepare.  Hypertension runs in the family.  I'm sure BurnCo yesterday blew the cap off my sodium intake for that day.

Blew the cap off mine for a week, I'm pretty certain.  They do rely heavily on the salt, don't they?

Looks like our first food truck hasn't closed down like I had thought. They just moved (go figure). They were at 2nd & Cherokee, which I thought was a really terrible location not only because of the distance form the COP campus, but because it was on Cherokee, which is a through street with fast moving traffic. Plus it was on a giant cement lot that had to be a zillion degrees in the summer. It has moved to right in front of the Price Tower, which is within a block or two of most of the office buildings downtown.

Grill 66 opened back up the other day. It is still in The Phillips Hotel, now known as The Johnstone Apartments. I went a few times before it was closed. Nothing to write home about that's for sure. The pictures I have seen looks like it still belongs in a senior living residence (which it is).

And it looks like Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers may be moving to town.

The food truck also parks out in front of ABB during the lunch hour once or twice a week.
It's former Frank and Lola's bartender Chris Barnhill who runs it. Pretty good guy and pretty good food.

Now I'm not certain, but I could have sworn there was a guy named Chris that worked at the now defunct Sweet Lou's. And I was under the impression that it was the same guy that ran the hot dog stand downtown as well (which I haven't seen in a long time). I could be dead wrong, just wondering.

That was actually Michael Wheeler. He still brings out the hot dog stand most Saturday nights at Frank and Lola's.

That's good that he's still keeping it up. Is he working anywhere else?

It's amazing how many places open up and shut down in downtown. While I generally think most of it has to do with poor food, there are some that are just overpriced (or undervalued). Sweet Lou's was one of them. They had decent food but it was so astronomically expensive for what it was. It had a good location too, but they were so slow you could barely get in and out under an hour. That is way too long. I have the same feelings about 2 Sisters. They are really pricey for unspectacular food. I got on trip-advisers and many of the reviews were pretty critical. They are in a good location too, and a cool building. I honestly haven't been in so long. I hear people at work that are about to go out to lunch say "How about 2 Sisters". Then someone will say it is too much, then they will go to Frank & Lola's which is just as expensive. That's a bad sign.

I'm actually not sure where he works now. I recommend the Seattle Dog though if you catch him slinging dogs one night.

I personally thought Sweet Lou's had a lot of potential. The location was great, the view was nice, the bar was well stocked. I really did enjoy my first few visits, but things started to go downhill right before it closed. It just seemed terribly mismanaged. Nothing was consistent, from the service to the specials.

As for 2 Sisters, I look past all of its glaring flaws and just love the place. It's a pub, the only pub we have. The bar is beautiful, and as long as I tell the bartenders how to mix my favorite drinks I'm perfectly content spending an afternoon or evening there. The food is average at best, but the atmosphere is right up my alley.

Just my opinion, but the atmosphere (building/bar/loft) is the only thing keeping people coming. Is the place as busy as it used to be. I quit going a while back but I used to frequent the place and it just seemed like it was sliding. My wife said something interesting. She said that if Frank & Lola's and 2 Sisters switched places, 2 Sisters would have been out of business months ago. I am still amazed that Frank & Lola's is as happening as it is considering it is on a street that has dead ends on both ends. You would have to be going to 2nd street to actually drive by F&L's. It's amazing what they have going on there.

2 Sisters may be slipping in that their beer selection has been slashed since they opened, but the food and service has stayed pretty consistent since the beginning... for better or for worse.

It is amazing the notoriety that FnLs has built up in a rather short time. The food and friendly service speaks for itself though. I know it's the place that I bring all of my out of town friends and family to when they come to Bville.

I went to Murphy's tonight for dinner. Had fifteen people and most of us had the hot hamburger. Everybody loved the place.

Hope you had a side of cardiologist as well.   Grin

But yes, the hot hamburger is THE thing to eat at Murphy's.  I'll likely be there next week as I'm planning a Caney Fat Tire run next weekend.
