Here are some of the new things that have changed or have been developed:
1st item is about our ice cream! I am a chocolate ice cream fanatic! A little over a month ago, I developed (what I believe) is the BEST chocolate "soft-serve" ice cream ever made!! It is made from scratch. After experimenting for over 2 months, I finally got a recipe that I Trully Love!
When I started this project, I was after that taste of the old Dairy Treat chocolate soft-serve that use to be in business in Sugarcreek (across from Garaway high school) many years ago. I grew up on that ice cream! My grandmother would bring me a couple quarts every other week or so to Dover. Even though we had many dairy shops in Dover/ New Phila, the one in Sugarcreek had the best!
Well, I did it!! My chocolate not only tastes like the one that use to be in Sugarcreek, but better!!
I have been told that mine kinda tastes like a fudgesickle. I can see some resemblance because it is dark in color, but it is just plain Good!! I feel that it blows away ALL of the bigger dairy's (in the state of Ohio) soft-serve mix that they sell to the smaller shops. I already have envisions of possibly marketing it in our surrounding area, but I need some more feedback yet!
I know it's good when ALL of my Help (at the restaurant) has to have a little dish of it; everyday!! We've had homemade vanilla soft-serve (which is Fabulous too!!) for years but they prefer the chocolate now!! You can have the vanilla or chocolate in a cone or a dish! You might even want to try a "Twist"?
2nd item is about our vanilla soft-serve ice cream. Like the chocolate, it is made from scratch too! While it has always been delicious, I felt that it was lacking something? I recently made some changes to it and I'm here to tell you.... it is even better than before!!! Try it out for yourself!
3rd, as most of you know, when we took over the restaurant this past year, I made some minor changes to the side dishes.
We will soon have a new onion ring! Our's right now are "Breaded", but they have a "minced" onion inside of them. I want the solid onion, in the breaded outter shell! I finally have found a vendor who will soon deliver me these new onion rings!
I changed the french fries to the crinkle-cut style that use to be served many years ago at the old Miller's Kitch'n (across the street)! I grew up with those fries and that restaurant! During the summers, when I would work for my father, I would eat at Miller's 3-times a day!!! That's NO joke!! I'll bet that I've consumed more french fries than anyone on Earth!
Also too (when we took over), we had changed the Mozzarella Cheese Sticks from the "battered" to the "breaded" style! This was a much needed improvement and we could see it by the increase in sales! Try some with our fabulous Marinara sauce!!
My wife added Corn Nuggets to the menu! Corn Nuggets are creamed-corn in a semi-breaded outter shell and are deepfried. While I was skeptical at first, I have to admit that they are pretty darn good!
As of last week, we also added Hash Brown Patties to the Breakfast menu! They are deepfried are pretty delicious with a lil' salt! And if your like me? A lil' ketchup!! And if you like Blueberry pancakes, they are on the menu too!
We soon will also be serving Dr. Pepper along with all of our Pepsi products! We will be saying goodbye to Sierra Mist. It doesn't sell. And I must say, that it is just the nasiest stuff ever made!
4th, about a month ago, we changed the marinade of our Charbroiled Chicken Breasts. The chicken breasts are bonless and skinless and cooked over an open flame. They are faboulous on top of a salad or served as a dinner! This changed in the marinade has been a positive one!! The recipe comes from mother!
5th, our prices have changed! We've lowered many prices at the beginning of the year!! Most likely, our competitors have all raised them due to Mininum-Wage hike? We were always priced lower than ALL of the restaurants that are in the same business as us (in this area), but now we are even lower yet!!! Hope I started a trend??
We raised the Senior Night discount (Monday nights) from 10% to 15%! And also increased our coupons!
And our Lunch-Specials are fabulous!! They're never a "burger & fries" or a "grilled-cheese & cup/soup", they are a meal! Beef/Noodles, Spaghetti/Meatballs, Yumesetti, Beef/Tators/Carrots Roast, German-Style Goulosh, Beeferoni, Lasagna, etc.!!!
On a final note, people would be surprised to know that I make a few of the special touches that are in some of our foods! Currently, I make the Homemade Chocolate "soft-serve" ice cream, the spaghetti sauce, the marinade in the Beef/Potato/Carrot roast/casserole, the Hamburger-Goulosh casserole, and the beans & wieners!
While I know that we won't be able to please every customer, I'll guarantee that 99% of you will enjoy your visit to our restaurant!!
Thanks for visiting!
