What's for Lunch? Part 1

Gollum at Designs by Gollum is hosting a Foodie Friday.


Go to her place to join in the fun!





One of my husband's favorite restaurants is Scruby's Bar-B-Q. They have a great way of bringing in happy customers. If you are seated before 12:00 noon, each person will receive $2.00. In addition, they have daily specials.



Their menu shows that their prices are reasonable, and I can vouch that the food and service are terrific.


Johnny ordered a pork plate. It came with sliced pork, cole slaw, french fries, and garlic bread--all for $6.79. However, the day we went, it was the daily special, and it cost $5.59. The giant drink is $2.00 and is refillable.


It's a good idea for these hard economic times! On Monday, I'll show you what I had!

I can taste it from here Sally! Seeing that plate reminds me of my favorite BBQ joint back home in Kansas City. It's called Arthur Bryants. Yummo! What a drink that is too LOL! Have a great day my friend.

That's a twist -- a restaurant that gives you money!

I haven't found good BBQ in SC -- I miss the BBQ in TX.

Hi Sally,
That is very unusual. Bet it gets them lots of business so it is probably pretty clever!

Kelli said...

What a fun idea and the food looks delicious!

Very clever way of giving something back to the customer and the food looks delicious. I wish we had a Scruby's Bar-B-Q in our area. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,

What a Deal; getting paid to eat out! Scruby's must be a local place and not a chain; I've never heard of them before.
Does the food taste as good as it looks? I love eating out!

YUM...that looks delicious. What a neat place to give you $2.00!!

Gattina said...

That's indeed very reasonable for such a meal !

April said...

They actually give you $2! Wow...that's incentive to go there for that reason alone! BBQ is one of my favorite foods ever...just sometimes hard to find a good place to eat it.

jeanne said...

Sally, my dh would love that pork plate. I usually order BBQ beef sandwich or ribs. This is making me hungry for BBQ. Too bad I can't go to Scruby's. Nice two for one today. Smile.

We are both blessed with our children Sally. Lucky us.

Hugs...Jeanne

Scruby's Bar-B-Q looks like a wonderful place to eat. The pork has my mouth watering. Good food and good service is what it takes to have a great meal. The prices at some restaurants is out of sight.

Johnny's dinner sounds and looks great and they give you $2 to boot- you can't go wrong with that! I can't wait to see your Monday post. ~ Robyn

I'll be right there for supper! This is mouthwatering!

Cam said...

The fries look great and the $2 is a nice gesture :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Yum Sally... Sounds delicious!! Did you go also???? They are clever--giving back money in order to get more business. These days, small businesses need all of the help they can get. Glad your hubby enjoyed it!!! The price is right!!!

What a deal! It's nice to still be able to eat out once in awhile. Jean

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Good one Sally! My favorite BBQ place has a soft serve machine with tiny little cones. It's fun to eat dessert while I'm waiting for my main course! ☺ Diane

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Wow that yummy food AND $2, that's my kind of place. It reminds me of a BBQ place I used to go to in Boyton Beach (can't remember the name to save my life right now.)
Do they make blue fries and blue coleslaw? I'm curious to see what you ate!

Lisa Ann said...

That does look yummy!

Susan said...

oh no...now I want some barbecue...I will have to get some tomorrow!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Wow! That is one good looking plate of food! :) And what great incentives for the customers...pay you to eat there! LOL! Can't wait to see what you ordered...it has to be blue, but what could it be??? LOL!

Have a great weekend! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Cathy said...

That is really neat, Sally. I can see why your husband likes that restaurant so much. Great food and money back!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

What a great idea to give $2 to the customers! That's like getting your drink for free. Food looks yummy too. I love those kinds of restaurants that serve good food at a great price. There was a little restaurant in my former hometown that was like that. Every time I took a date there, they raved about the place. Sadly, it caught fire and never re-opened.
