For those of you that get “Nick’s News” in your snail mail box, you know that I love to eat. In fact, the “Nick’s Pick’s” portion of the newsletter is something you guys seem to find pretty interesting. Normally, I leave that small portion of our newsletter as the only place where I write ( a little bit) about restaurants that Lori and I like to visit. As with most things, there is always an exception to the rule…
This past Sunday, we were invited to attend a “sneak peak” breakfast at Joe’s Real Barbeque. Yep, I said breakfast at Joe’s Real BBQ! Come to find out, they will soon begin serving breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8-11am.
Lori and I took the three boys to give it a test run and I must say, we all had a great time. The usual friendly service was found along with some great breakfast items that aren’t the “same old stuff” you find at some breakfast places. I wasn’t able to resist the biscuits and gravy even though it probably wasn’t the “healthiest” of choices. To compensate for that, I ordered a fruit, yogurt and granola cup that was really, really good. That mad sense, right? Lori had a really cool egg dish called Downtown Baked Eggs and the boys had some sides of “sausage meat” ( that’s what they call any kind of sausage ) and “breakfast Jell-O”, juices, potatoes etc.
Our family did enjoy breakfast at Joe’s. Their food always seems to be good. Big thanks to Joe for allowing us to be guinea pigs and thanks to my good friend, Jay Thompson for letting me know about their preview breakfast.
Like usual, the kids were the center of our morning. The gumball machine at Joe’s Real BBQ was a big hit as was the huge tractor inside of the restaurant. The only complaint of the mornings breakfast was from the boys because they wanted to drive the tractor… “Grandpa let’s us drive HIS tractor!”
Thanks Joe, your restaurant rocks!
