A fresh start to a fresh quarter brought a new dining experience that I’ve heard a lot about. Cap City has been spoken of by my friends both for the great value and the delicious food! I’m not going to lie either, they were horribly mistaken (just kidding) they weren’t joking. The restaurant is larger than it appears and hosts a beautiful patio dining area which was on a darned wait which was too popular for us to sit at, for good reason. The staff was very intelligent, especially the host staff. That’s saying something because most hosts I come across are dimmer than a rock.
Well let’s move onto the important things, me the food. Back from Panama my belly was craving more than seafood and Taco Bell. Although we were short a member, we still ordered enough to feel like a quartet. We started off with some of their Pepperoni Flatbread and Pell n’ Eat Flatbread. I consumed most of the Pepperoni, and it was delicious! The crust was very thin and very crispy, and the cheese was light and perfect for a starter. I didn’t partake in the other because of the vegetable content, yuck! However Shayna and Mike thoroughly enjoyed it, giving it a Saturday rating! Now would also be a great time to mention their drinks. They had Guinness and Blue Moon so my family was pleased and I, being 20, ordered their Fresh Raspberry Lemonade… to die for. (Unfortunately the waitress never refilled it *sad face*)
The main courses were fine and great. I chose a traditional Chili Dog. Tasty, but nothing special. The real winner was the friends’ recommendations: The Cap City Diner Meatloaf. Served like an open face sandwich, this meatloaf was a great portion size and one of the better meatloafs I’ve tasted (and we try meatloaf at every stop if they have it). Since t his post is a bit delayed I can’t quite remember the palate it gives, but I can definitely remember it was Yummy. Highly recommended by us now too.
For desert my sister and I chose the Cherry Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Pie. The pies they house at Cap City are a Mom & Daughter thing, so it’s a nice back story to your tasty treats. The cheesecake was good, but cheesecake is hard to screw up or make better than everyone else. The hands down winner (and maybe best dessert yet) goes to the Peanut Butter Pie. It’s rich, but amazing! If you don’t save room for it, you’re crazy.
When you go grab the Roni Flatbread and some Rasp Lemonade to start off with. Dive into the Meatloaf, almost literally. And finish with a combo dessert of peanut butter and chocolate to make any evening a special occasion (for your stomach). Great work Cap City, you’ve got our support!
