Summertime in SoBro, Part II...

Continuing the series, I went for lunch at Moe & Johnny's today...

This is the view from the parking lot of the Fresh Market at 54th & College, looking south-by-southwest at Moe & Johnny's...

So, for lunch tomorrow, should I have Greek or Cajun?

Why not do both?

Order Cajun, and then bitch because it isn't free, and the portions are too small.

Mmmmm Greek. Our one and only local Greek restaurant closed a few years ago. I'd sell what's left of my soul for good Greek food.

Look Ms. Cosmopolitan and all that, all MY lunch options end in D's. You know, Wendy's, MickeyD's, Hardee's, Captain D's etc. No reason to rub it in!

LOL! :D

Bob said...

Great replies by Ambo and Keads. I vote Cajun, myself.

Moe & Johnny's? is that the place that used to be a garage/filling station?

Mockingbird said...

Cajun, but that's just me.
I live in the deep south.

Tam said...

Mongo78,

Apparently their main dining room used to be a Kroger's...

I'd avoid the Greek...

Sure the food's great, but before you're out the door they'll be hitting you up for a "loan" to pay the mortgage and the payroll...

Cajun of course... Grillades and grits with a salad and biscuits :-)

Or, you could have crawfish etouffe!

Save the Greek for a trip to Mordor on the Lake.
Stroll down Halsted ... Try the Paregon or Greek Islands.
You'll get hit on by waiters, straight off the boat.
Saganaki flaming up to the ceiling, Opa! Ouzo out the ears. OPA!!

Worth the trip.
Just practice CCC. (criminal concealed carry)((jk))

A guy might choose based on the expectred aftermath. If I'm going to be hanging around with Partner, I might just have the Gyros and double-fried onion rings, and wash it down with a warm Liney's bock. The liklihood Partner would come to an unfortunate end is greatly improved. "Regular" greek food, like tiropita or dolmathes or even a good kebab over rice has no such ill effects.

Cajun, on the other hand, just gives me bad breath and hardly any noticeable aftereffects. And by "Hardly noticeable" I mean almost nobody ever even loses consciousness.

Hi All,
I'm a regular lurker tho' rarely comment. As I'm from Oz and have never been to Indiana I really like the addition of the photos (which I suspect is a result of the new smart phone).

ignoring the direct issue, the left side of my brain reminds the right side of my brain that I will be driving through Indianapolis (or not, depending on the economy, and etc.) on business in mid-July or so, and would be pleased to stop at Moe & Johnny's or any other worthwhile place for lunch, either going out (the 24th, as now planned) or returning (the 30th, ditto). I may or may not be travelling as an American, as I will be driving through Chicago (pause to spit). Don't worry about anything fancy, as my plans are NOT firm.

Souvlaki on pita (lamb or pork, please-no feathered meat!), and slathered with garlicky tzatziki.

Add a cold beer and a warm patio, and you wouldn't trade it for Heaven.

If you tried, you'd deserve to be in that Other Place.

I see you have discovered what I have discovered about cell phone photos: No lens cover means ya gotta remember to wipe the lens before taking the picture :)

forgive me...

"Cajun"? Up THERE?!?!?!

No way, babe.

Too much "Cajun" away from the environs of south Louisiana is "anything with extra pepper".
