I'm always looking for small, out-of-the-way, family owned and operated, diner type, places. Mr B and Me is just that. I have been eating there semi-regularly for the last couple of months and have usually had a really good experience. Mr. Bogatz does a great job trying to keep the customers happy but with the geriatric clientele that frequents this place it is next to impossible. Like the Jackie Mason story goes:
"the waiter approaches a table of four very old women just finishing their meal and says, Ladies, .....was anything alright?"
The restaurant has a very extensive menu and if someone comes here and can't find something to their liking they shouldn't be dining out. The menu consists of several pages filled with every kind of food you can imagine. From eggs and four egg omelets to steak dinners and everything in between not to mention all the regular deli items like smoked fish and pastrami.
On our latest visit for dinner Michelle had the turkey leg dinner with a baked potato, apple sauce, cranberry sauce and gravy. She started with a large, full bowl of matzoh ball soup that was loaded with noodles and vegetables. I had the grilled chopped steak smothered with onions and mushrooms, mashed potatoes and a side of broccoli and a salad starter. Two iced teas, a dish of chocolate ice cream and a piece of chocolate cake completed the meal. We both walked away full and satisfied and took the leftovers home for another time.
Mr B's is a great value for the money! Good food, large portions, efficient wait staff, all make this a well-rounded choice for your next breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Be sure to tell Mr B that you read about it here at http://www.whiteplatespecial.com/
