life of a UPS guy kinda miserable? Well, fortunately, we stopped a UPS guy, who turned out to be friendly, for suggestions on good lunch spots. He pointed us over to The Grill, so we checked out the menu and thought it looked rather good. We went inside and were greeted by the extremely sweet hostess. Service was friendly and quick, and almost as soon as we got seated, our order was brought to our table.

We swapped halves with each other so we could try both. $12 for sandwiches is pretty steep, but the grilled salmon club was worth every bite! The grilled chicken, not so much. But just for that salmon club, I'll spend an entire tank of gas to get down there for!
