Today the "Party of 4"+1 didn't even leave the office without serious discussion as to which Larry's Giant Subs we were going to entertain. There were concerns to those establishments closest to us as the Health Violations were in the double digits. So instead of a bias opinion and venturing out to the 0 health violations on 1330 Blanding, we decided on this one. We were informed that although they had 10 health violations in February, they are under new management. There were a variety of sandwiches ordered, and 5 orders were too many for them to get all correct. So 4 out of 5 isn't too bad even if we were the only ones there with a clear drive thru. Ordering a Reuben Sub, when asked white, wheat or rye - turns out they were are all not sub rolls. So the Reuben took hits for not being toasted and on rye bread no bigger than regular sandwich bread. All sandwiches weighed a pound a piece in the "to go bags" they came in, except the Reuben (1/2 lb.) . The sandwiches listed as hot, come wrapped differently. 4 of the hot sandwiches were wrapped in paper and the 5th in foil keeping it warm. When ordering oil ask for it light, one sandwich was soaked. Price was comparable to other sub shops, however the quality wasn't there. Our average analysis was a 6.6 out of a possible 10. Dining 7/2/08.

Check your order at the drive thru, before you go, you might not get what you ordered. Never use a credit card at this restaurant. Mine was hacked (I highly suspect) after I did. Luckily Visa caught it and the transaction did not go through. Great Seafood, but you get TOO many fries, and only about 2 tablespoons of coleslaw. There is something really creepy about this place...maybe its just one of those hole-in-the-wall places. I wouldn't be caught dead on the inside/or I might get dead if I did go inside. But I would say its the best seafood on the Westside if you want it Hot and Fried/taken out. Great wings, too...that was the order they got wrong...but glad they did...I enjoyed them very much! 5 stars for takeout seafood and wings. 1 star for sides. A creepy 0 for just a general unsettling feeling being around the place, never mind going inside.
After hearing good things about this restaurant from a relative, I decided to give it a try. First let me say that this restaurant opens only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (hence the name The Weekend Cafe) I went in last Sunday, and I ordered a $10 plate which included; rice and gravy, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, potato salad, corn bread, and your choice of meat (they have oxtails, smothered/fried porkchops, baked/fried chicken,ribs, and chitterlings, but I opted for smothered porkchops) Everything was delicious, and the pork chops were very tender. To top all of that off, I ordered a slice of red velvet cake (it costs $2), and it was by far, the best I've tasted. Needless to say, I'll be back.

Every time I go to Beach Road Chicken Dinners, I am taken back to 1964, when I moved here as a little girl. The food reminds me of my grandmother's cooking and the atmosphere reminds me of her home. Whenever I get the craving for fried chicken or just really good home-style food, my husband and I make the drive from Julington Creek to Beach Road, because no where else seems to quite satisfy. The food, service, atmosphere, and memories all deserve far more than five stars.
