The salad bar was a step above from the expected: bright green romaine lettuce, sunflower seeds, deliciously marinated cucumber-onion salad, and thick, extra cheesy loaded potato soup occupied the line. Complaints? Plasticky dressings and only cheddar cheese. But hey, I’ll take anything over a wilted mix of iceberg and carrots. While underwhelming in size, the tenderloin had redeeming qualities of good flavor, crunchiness and a soft, warm bun. Not sure about the proclaimed “fame” worthiness. The signature Jim Dandy burger was essentially a Big Mac, but a little better. I suggest adding white onion and extra pickles. Crinkle-cut fries arrived hot and fresh; however, the portion was a tad small for the ala carte price.
I only ordered pie because they tempt you at the door by displaying each flavor and they looked deserving of a taste. Coconut cream was an obvious choice, but carmel apple nut came with a rave recommendation. Both were devoured with great quickness.
Overall: Kept it extremely basic, and the meal passed with high enough marks for a return visit. You won’t catch me rushing to Greenfield anytime soon just to eat here, but I would like to give the broasted chicken a try when I’m in the neighborhood again. Almost ordered a plate to share—after finishing the pie—but our food consumption already flabbergasted the nice server lady.
