Last week I was invited out to Newk's in the River City Marketplace. I have been to Newk's before (on Southside Blvd), but have only been to this location once about a year ago. We went on a Tuesday night, which happens to be the same night my favorite soup is available, and double points night! You can download their app and earn one point per dollar every time you visit. Once you get to 100 points, you get a free meal!
We were immediately greeted when we walked in and placed our order at the counter. That is one thing that I love about Newk's, they have great customer service. From the front counter staff to the bus boys, everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. To me that's very important. I love to see that level of customer because I feel that not many places make it a priority anymore. Very refreshing.
For my dinner I got Four Cheese Mac and Cheese, and Loaded Potato soup. Yes, I know that's starchy but you only live once. I am very critical of mac and cheese, and I approve. It is nice and crispy on the top while being cheesy and gooey on the inside. The soup is my favorite soup of any restaurant anywhere. It has potato chunks, bacon pieces, sour cream, and green onions. I love to order a half side of bread to dip in there (along with my bread sticks of course!)
Ivan got the Pepperoni Pizza. That's another thing I love about Newk's, the menu is so diverse. Sometimes you are in the mood for soup but your spouse wants pizza...problem solved! Even though they are not a pizzeria, they still make a mean pizza! There are lots of different types and I have get to get a bad one!
Verdict: Loved it!
There are many things to love about Newk's, so I suggest you go and find out for yourself!
