Bbi Cafe & Sandwich Bar 4825 Oakbrook Drive.

This is a charming little place on the North side in the vicinity of 59th and Georgetown road. It has been around for 15 years, the current husband and wife team that own the place bought it in 2012. They serve a basic menu of sandwiches, soups and salads for lunch and the usual eggs, pancakes and biscuits and gravy for breakfast. It’s not sexy or “cutting edge” they just offer good cooking at a reasonable price.

The menu is written on a large chalk board behind the counter where you order. They also offer specials. Their special for Wednesday was a blackened rib eye steak sandwich with grilled onions on a ciabatta style roll, the same as Pat’s cheese burger.

My steak was nicely done. It had a slight heat from the Cajun spices and a creamy chipotle mayo. The tender meat was an excellent foil to the chew of the bread. I would not hesitate ordering it again. As my side I picked a pasta salad. It had a vinaigrette dressing that didn’t overpower any of the other ingredients, but I think I would have liked a bit more of it.

Our total tab was $18.50 so it is reasonably priced and the food is more than reasonably tasty. Actually it is close enough me that I can try their breakfast. I am always on the look out for good biscuits and gravy.

    • Slaw is good. Everyone needs more slaw in their diet. I have a taste for the sweet and creamy style.

    Hi Binsin, that building used to be the Friendly Foods and Lidner’s when I lived over there 24 years ago!

    • I know. As much as I try to limit my carbs I realize what a sucker I am for a good hunk of bread.
