We’ll be swinging from a old tire swing all week, singing a few songs, writing some great poetry, and answering deep philosophical questions over pulled pork po-boys. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you as we move into early fall: Fried chicken tenders with lady cream peas and roasted broccoli, pulled pork po-boys with apple slaw, and chicken and sausage pastalaya.
We’ll be closed this Friday, September 23 for a catering event.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, September 20
Fried chicken tenders with lady cream peas, roasted broccoli, and honey cornmeal biscuits. Chicken tenders bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce come fried in a special flour recipe and served with a savory side of lady cream peas and roasted broccoli with flaky honey cornmeal biscuits. Poet Carl Sandberg noted, “Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.” We remember his opening lines to the poem about “Chicago,” “Hog Butcher for the World, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler; Stormy, husky, brawling, City of the Big Shoulders: They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys….” Biscuits, hyacinths, and poetry — sounds like we’re having fried chicken with some fresh farm goodness just for you.

Pulled pork po-boys with apple slaw. Slow cooked pork, pulled to tender pieces, house made barbecue sauce, and jalapeño mayonnaise topped with our tart apple slaw on Gambino’s po-boy bread form a porkalicious sandwich that simply makes your week better by helping you slide faster into the weekend. Writer Shane Koyczan jokes, “When I was a kid, I used to think pork chops and karate chops were the same thing.” We’re wondering what kind of animal a “karate” is. Will it taste like chicken? Come have a pulled pork po-boy with us, and we can answer these deep, philosophical questions together.
Thursday, September 22
Chicken and sausage pastalaya with house salad. Well, Cajun calling! What’s better than a delicious, hearty mix of chicken, sausage, bow tie pasta, and tasty goodies? Old buddy Jimmy Buffet sings in his song, “Life is Just a Tire Swing” — “Life was just a tire swing. ‘Jambalaya’ was the only song I could sing. Blackberry pickin’, eatin’ fried chicken, and I never knew a thing about pain. Life was just a tire swing.” Well, this pastalaya will help you feel the breeze of swinging on an old tire in late, cool evenings of early fall. Yep.
If you can’t make it for lunch on Thursday, just give us a call at 267-4457, we’ll set aside some supper for you including salad, house-made bread, and pastalaya.

Our old friend Henry David Thoreau oddly observed, “I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” Hmmm. Maybe he’s saying he doesn’t like city-living. Then again, maybe he’s The Great Pumpkin of Charlie Brown fame the way John Lennon was the walrus.
