Monday. It’s here!
So, you remember last year when I went to Nashville with my BFF Heather for a singing tournament that I direct? Of course you do. I wrote about it here.
A new restaurant is in town.
It’s a chain, but only kind of.
The Local Taco started alllllll the way in Tennessee (not really), and just opened a location in Greenville! I’ve been there three times now, and I LIKE IT A LOT. Also, I ate leftovers from dinner last weekend yesterday for lunch and I LIKED THEM A LOT.
Seriously. This place is great. A manager, Kris, emailed and asked if we’d like to come write a review and duh, we did. I had already been and wanted to take Jay, so we went for an early dinner last week before we went to see my sister sing the national anthem at a hockey game. Because you care about things like that.
Local Taco is a Mexican-fusian restaurant, if I had to call it anything. Their menus are different at each of their locations based on local favorites. They use local ingredients, too, which I love.
Not really, but that’s what happened anyways.
High Cotton in Greenville, SC, is wonderful. REALLY wonderful. We’ve been there several times for different occasions, and I don’t think we’ve EVER had anything we don’t like.
In September of 2009 I stumbled home from Seattle after waving goodbye to my life in comedy. I was down on my luck, living with my Mom and I desperately needed to find a job. With school looming on my horizon my options were limited to waiting tables, a trade that I was very familiar and comfortable with. I knew I didn’t want to wait tables at Applebee’s – or any other chain restaurant for that matter. Anderson, SC is not considered a “foodie” town. It’s more of a narrow minded, severely obese, well-done steak, 12% tipping kind of town. I needed to find a hip, laid back, top-notch, quality establishment that would allow me to be myself while waiting tables. I found that restaurant. SummaJoe’s brought me in, made me part of the family, provided me with a stellar social group, and gave me an amazing environment in which to work.
That’s why this restaurant review is biased as hell!
