I know a thing or two about good soup and RGD has damn good soup. While I’d love a few larger pieces of broccoli in the broccoli cheese, the taste was phenomenal. The sweet relish chicken salad wasn’t quite up my alley; I prefer more of a grape, celery and walnut route. There was almost no texture contrast in the sandwich. The burger however, served on grilled bread vs. the typical bun, was juicy, well-dressed and well-seasoned. Nothing fancy, just a simple, delicious burger. AND: They have warm German potato salad! Mm. For dessert, a mountain of thick, creamy custard and toasted coconut bits resting upon thin, flaky crust was the perfect (slightly overindulgent) ending.

Kudos: Family owned and operated since ’83. { Also note: It’s 21+ only and closed on the weekends. }

Overall: It’s a dive bar with deli food and baked goods. BOOZE AND PIE, PEOPLE. PIE AND BOOZE!
