Since Grub's has the highest-rated fries here on the report, I was very excited to hear that Grub's "Uptown" location had opened in the old Meaux Dad's building in front of Target. Now I can enjoy my favorite fries (and fry dip) without the hassle of Dickson Street!
My buddy EJ and I decided it would be prudent to do a review of the fries at the new location just to be sure they were using the same recipe. It was 9:00, and they didn't open until 11:00 so I tricked EJ into driving to Golden Corral for the breakfast buffet. He was not impressed.
GIBBY: So, whattya think?
EJ: This food reminds me of when I was in the army, and the people here are actually WORSE than the people you see at Walmart at 3am on a Tuesday. I've never seen so many pairs of dirty sweat pants in my life.
After 47 slices of bacon and 11 pancakes (between the two of us), we headed over to Grub's Uptown. I ordered fries and EJ ordered A SIDE SALAD! The fries were just as good as at the Dickson location, and I actually got 24 more fries for the same $1.99 than I got during my review of the "downtown" location. Sweet! 10 out of 10.
GIBBY: Want some fries? They'd go great with that SALAD!
EJ: No. I'm trying to wash Golden Corral out of my mouth and mind.
GIBBY: If you're a complete wuss, giggle like a little girl while I take a picture of you.
GIBBY: I thought so.
