Usually when I see Suite in an address for a restaurant I figure it is one slot in a big building in a strip mall. Well this place is in a slot, a tiny one at that. However the big building only has 2 businesses. Turf’s on the far end and a big old muffler place. I would guess it is in a quasi industrial use area. Unusual for a restaurant but not so for a caterer. The place is 90 percent kitchen with minimal space for sitting and ordering and the walk in cooler on the outside. Another thing they have is exceptional food.

I learned of this place from a food blog. The writer was really excited about the grilled cheese and the Crogue as well as the pimento cheese. Everything was very tempting but I opted for the short rib sandwich and a side of pimento cheese. The picture of the menu board isn’t that legible so at the end I am including a scan of the menu. They have a very impressive set of side dishes at a more than respectable price.

Their pimento cheese was wonderful. Creamy and cheesy. Some of the best I have had,and with their homemade bread it could be a meal all by itself.

The short rib and cheese sandwich was excellent as well. Super rich and with a sweetness from the red onion jam that would make it an excellent dining companion with an IPA. Alas they only offer soft drinks. I especially liked the char they put on the bread. That always adds a new dimension of flavor.

Pat was really excited about this place once he was told that he could substitute on their menu.

As the sign noted they have only been open since 2013. Their main bag is catering so I am glad they decided to serve lunch during the week. Since they are caterers I am sure they have a propensity for fresh product more so than the average restaurant. I am in full agreement with Pat. Anyone planning on a catered affair with these guys, let us know.

  1. Oooh, red onion jam! (Which is the opposite of Ew, red onion jam). You guys scored on this one. And what creative sides, too! I’d have had to plunk down $4 for the bread pudding.

    • Believe me were I not so full I would have definitely got some. I took home half of my sandwich and half of the cheese and bread; so I definitely got my money’s worth.

  2. I’m glad my supper’s almost done, because my mouth is watering!
    I want that black & bleu burger, yes I do, and some bread pudding! And because of this post, I’m going to make some pimiento cheese sammiches this week! Mmm! 😛 It’s been too long.
    I gotta check this place out! 🙂 Thanks!

    • I don’t think you will be disappointed. They are open from 11 to 3. I think I want it all. The kid working the counter said that I could take a look at their smoker but they got busy so I didn’t. Pimento cheese sammiches with sweet tea. Toss in a Moon Pie and you could almost hear the banjo.

      • Mmm, yes. There’s a place in downtown Savannah, Leopold’s, famous for ice cream, but they make a killer pimiento sammich, too. 🙂

      • Thanks I will keep that in mind should I ever make it to Savannah. In the mean time I will have to make do with my own concoction. What makes a truly killer pimento cheese?

      • It has to be freshly grated cheddar, and not too sharp. The mayo has to be mixed in first, carefully, with elbow grease and not a processor, left a lil dry before the pimientos go in.

        I am not slobbering, and if I am, it’s because there are brownies in the oven. 😉

      • One should always grate their cheese. I knew a lady from the Carolinas that would add cream cheese and seasoning. It was pretty good but I think I prefer a simpler cheese.

      • There are plenty of complicated things that have to be complicated. For me, this particular thing is tasty in its simplicity 🙂

      • Here here. Nicely put.
