We Make Our Dream Picks For The New Restaurant
We around the KICK studios were excited to learn the other day that a new restaurant would be coming to the Prairie Trail Shopping Center. Unfortunately, that's all the news there was to the story. We don't know what restaurant it is. It could be literally anything. So of course everyone fantasized about what they want to go in there. Once we got past the usual answers of Red Lobster/Olive Garden/Chik-Fil-A, here's where we landed.
Remember... this is just for fun, if we had a say. We don't have a say, and our suggestions don't matter.
Brodie - Schlotzky's/Goodcents/Pita Pit
Quincy needs more variety in the sandwich shops. We've got some great local places that do good sandwiches, but that's just a portion of the menu. And eventually you grow tired of Subway and Jimmy John's. You want to spice it up a bit. So I think we should get a good sandwich shop. Any one of Schlotzky's Deli, Goodcents or Pita Pit would be good.
Sam - Five Guys Burgers & Fries
Sam doesn't like that there aren't any higher end burger places. Don't get her wrong, she's aware there are great restaurants who sell quality burgers, but there isn't a really good burger joint. It's just the fast food offerings. But Five Guys is top quality. It's a little pricier, but definitely worth it. And they've got the bins of peanuts you can munch on while you wait.
Ben - Portillo's
Portillo's has been brought up numerous times when we've run "What restaurant should go here?" polls, and we subsequently decided it belongs in the old Ruby Tuesday location, but that's neither here nor there at this point. This Chicago food favorite gets Ben's vote on what we should get out that the Prairie Trail Shopping Center.
Michael - Lion's Choice
Michael agrees with Ben's on Portillo's, but also offered up getting Lion's Choice, which Ben agreed with. Both raved about the roast beef, and now I really want to try it.
Dorsey - Hofbrauhaus
OK, the Big Dog from our sister station Y101 didn't specifically mention Hofbrauhaus, but he did say, "For such a German town, with two separate German festivals and their own German band, we don't have a German restaurant. This town needs a German restaurant." And after looking at the Hofbrauhaus menu, I 100% agree.
