|Jimmy's Grille, Bridgeville, DE|
Tonight our regular Friday Night Dine Out group didn't meet so the Milton contigent (you know who you are) decided to go on our own and take the long trip to Bridgeville, Delaware; home of the annual Apple-Scrapple Festival. No, the festival wasn't being tonight. We were just going to give Jimmy's Grill a try in far away Bridgeville.

Well, the trip was worth it! When we saw the crowd waiting to be seated as we entered the restaurant we knew we knew we were on to something. This wasn't any summertime tourist crowd waiting to get into one of those overpriced Rehoboth restaurants. These were hometown folk out for a night of good homestyle cooking.

We didn't have to wait too long until we were seated. As we perused the menus, the biggest problem was what to choose. This was All-American cuisine. None of those "presentation dishes' where they paint the plate with squirts of some unknown and unheard of sauce, place a few sprigs of basil and maybe a sliver or two of meat and call it iconic (or something like that - I can't remember the exact word they use for those 'painted' dishes).

We placed our orders and we were all pleased with what we got. Don V. was especially happy with his chicken breast with stuffing which tasted just like mom's homemade. Scott got the chicken pie which he said was delicious. It looked so good, that's what I'm getting next time, right after I order the chicken breast with homemade stuffing. I had a grilled Cajun chicken breast which was good, though I would prefer it a little spicier. Scott also got that pretzel-Jello-cream pie appetizer which he said was the best he's had. All the homemade desserts looked fabulous. I left with a homemade cherry pie ($14.00). Bill and I will make quick work of that All-American dessert (right after I complete this blog posting as a matter of fact).

Oh yes, there is nothing like a little change of scenery.
