Lunch at Macri's
Years ago Macri's was located on the east side of town
in a shopping center.
It was a favorite with locals and college students.
Then a few years ago the Krogers next store wanted to expand
and the owners of the shopping center didn't renew the lease
for Macri's. Rather than attempting to find a new place for the
restaurant, the owners of Macri's decided to call it a day.
There was much sorrow in B-town that day.
Then recently it was announced that a couple of people
who had ties to the old Macri's were going to bring
the restaurant back to town, but in a different location.
After much hard work and perserverance, they finally
opened this spring in the old depot off the B-Line trail on
7th Street and Morton.
Macri's is back in town.
The new owners were able to purchase many of the
Even the booths are similar to the old Macri's.
And of course there are TVs every where.
One of my favorite dishes at the original Macri's was the gyros.
So naturally I had to have it to see if it was just as good.
The best in town, as far as I'm concerned.
The only difference was the switch in sides.
The original Macri's offered bagged potato chips as the side.
The new Macri's offers french fries, dill pickle spears, steamed broccoli, red potato salad, cottage cheese, onion rings, pepperoncini peppers, creamy coleslaw, or a side salad (some at a premium charge).
Next time I'll have to see if the spinach salad is still just as good.
Welcome back to town, Macri's!
We've missed you!
