Bill of Fare: Miss Cue, Timbers Bowling

December 18, 2014 - Picnic Time

PEACH WEEKENDER | BILL OF FARE

When a titillate to revisit a pool gymnasium or bowling alley crosses a minds, we mostly omit a food options in such establishments. Experience has taught us that such edibles can possibly heighten or intensify a recreational outings.

Case in point: a billiards dilemma famous as Miss Cue South, located during 1720 S. Reynolds Rd. Miss Cue also has a north plcae during 216 New Towne Square Dr.

Walking to my chair in a room filled with pool tables, we was handed a menu for Harry’s Hot Dog Hut that is underneath a same ownership. The menu featured a series of sides, and a choice of equipment served as prohibited dogs, bratwurst, or Polish sausage. The selections enclosed equipment such as a Obama Dog, where someone else is ostensible to compensate for a dish, and a moth shrimp that playfully disclaims “no tangible Butterflies were harmed in a creation of this appetizer.”

MENUS:

■ Timbers Bowling

■ Miss Cue South

I started with a Chicken Fryz ($5) appetizer, described as french fry-shaped strips whose duck hailed from Clucker Chicken Farm in Toledo. But remember, a menu is one large joke. Clucker Chicken Farm doesn’t exist. If it did, a beef competence indeed have tasted fresher, instead of a seared breading covering what competence pass for a solidified dinner. It seemed overcooked, an unimpressive approach to start a meal.

My initial prohibited dog choice was a Chicago ($3), that betrothed tomatoes, diced onions, Vienna competition peppers, plight relish, dill pickle, yellow mustard, and a lurch of celery salt. When we perceived this all-beef frank, a tomatoes and dill plight were missing. The onions were fresh, though all else came from a jar. we don’t know if a menu’s print was ostensible to be a fun as well, since it didn’t compare a dish’s ingredients. The prohibited dog itself was a bit cold, and a juicy poppy-seed bun was frequency adequate to deliver a dish.

Up third was a singular preference on a menu named after a Greek and Roman hellhound Cerberus. It’s served with “Dan’s special recipe prohibited salsa with cream cheese, peppers uninformed habanero peppers.” The menu also cautioned “Do not sequence unless we like ‘burn your face off hot!’ I’m not kidding.” we systematic a bratwurst Cerberus and fries for $5. Had we systematic a sandwich by itself, it competence have been some-more of a challenge. However, we interconnected it with a potion of Miss Cue Ale ($2.25), a hoppy IPA from a Great Black Swamp Brewing Co. in Toledo. It helped palliate a fusillade of piquancy that came with a peppers and oozing cream cheese. It didn’t take a overwhelming bid to labor by a meal; a Cerberus was a clear alleviation over a Chicago dog and a aberration didn’t disappoint.

If you’re adult for a challenge, try a Cerberus. If not, best to hang with a inexpensive drink prices and pool, that costs $8 an hour or $15 a night Sunday by Thursday, and $10 an hour or $20 a night Fridays and Saturdays.

My subsequent stop was Timbers Bowling during 1246 Conant St., Maumee. Away from a joining play during a investiture that has been in a Maumee area for decades, sat a caf� cosy in a corner. The menu facilities a accumulation of sandwiches, salads, and baskets; we systematic a Club ($4.89) with a side of Onion Petals ($2.79). The Club came with ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo served with 3 slices of toasted bread, in my box rye.

With a food sequence placed, we went to a bar in an adjacent room and sampled a Sam Adams Boston Lager ($3.50) or one “Mr. Boston” as my barkeeper playfully called it. Beer in hand, we dug into my Club. The meats were served cold, a bacon was crispy, a tomato and lettuce were fresh, a mayo was adequate, not overbearing, and a bread was toasted and not burnt. The 3 slices were a good hold and it distant a equipment that came with a sandwich so a bacon wasn’t swimming in mayonnaise and branch soggy. The Onion Petals were zero special.

On a lapse revisit to Timbers, we motionless to try a burger named after a venue, a Timberger ($4.79), that is served with American cheese, immature olives, and diced onions on dual slices of grilled rye bread. The piping-hot burger and a mixture done for an engaging dish. The onions churned good with a cheese and there were copiousness of olives. The burger was baked medium-well, though we could still season a juices. It reminded me of something served during a amicable gathering, like a picnic, that is suitable for a venue.

The bowling prices during Timbers cost $4 per diversion for adults and students and $3 for comparison citizens. Timbers also has a three-game special for $12 per chairman that includes boots and a rent-a-lane special for $26.

The subsequent time we find yourself during Timbers Bowling, maybe try a food, that is closer to a gangling than a strike.
