The First Amendment, Right On

The First Amendment Bar and Grill, a new restaurant in Wooster, Ohio, is looking to make its mark with a patriotic flare.

A friend, Dave Rhoad, and I visited the restaurant to get some lunch. While I do not have enough information to write a review of the restaurant, I was impressed with the quality and taste of the food.

Dave had The¬†Filibuster, don’t ask me what it is, and I had the Lincoln, a sandwich made of slowly roasted beef and served like a French dip, except on a round bun instead of French bread. We also had the Yankee Doodle Noodle, which is two gigantic balls of macaroni and cheese breaded and deep fried and covered in cheese sauce.¬†We both enjoyed our meal.

Here’s what I think makes the place interesting:

  • Every morning at 9 a.m. they get out the P.A. system and sing the National Anthem;
  • The restaurant is open from about 7 a.m.-4 p.m. daily with an interesting menu, and it shares space with a coffee bar from 7 a.m.-11 a.m.;
  • It provides an atmosphere for civil discussion to promote better understanding.

If you are in Wooster, you might want to check them out. They are right next door to Matsos Family Restaurant, a legendary downtown restaurant that serves great Italian and Greek food.

    Dr. Todd, I was there today for lunch, and I decided to text Kyle my order. She is so tech savvy. She replied it will be 15 minutes. I am thinking I need to do an update because it is amazing how they try to connect and get to know their customers.
