Farewell to Lester

| | Comments (0)

Our good friend Leslie (aka, "Lester") is moving away, so we decided to get the group together and wish her farewell. It's definitely going to be sad not having her join us for our usual Thursday night dinner gatherings.

We decided to try out JJ's Grill-n-Chill, which is a new restaurant in the Rogers area that's been receiving great reviews. The appearance from the outside isn't anything spectacular - it's in a strip mall, with signage that's nearly impossible to read/decipher. It's unfortunate, because I've driven past it for at least 3 months and never had any idea what it was! But, as we quickly discovered last night, the food, service, and atmosphere are fantastic, and I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

So, without any further ado, here are some photos.

That's the logo and signage. Doesn't really convey the message of "restaurant and pub with live music every night, great food, good prices, and excellent service," but then again, I'm not a marketing guru, so what do I know?

Leslie apparently owns a laundromat...

Karl and Mandy arrived after a bit, and Karl appeared surprised by his beverage selection.

I had a salad with grilled chicken, and it was delicious. The tomatoes were extremely tasty, and the chicken was cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of cracked pepper for seasoning.

Karl and I toward the end of the evening. We were smiling on the outside, but crying on the inside. :-(

Good luck, Lester, and keep in touch with us. Best wishes with your new venture!
