J.R.’s Old Packinghouse Café, Sarasota, Florida

 
J.R.’s Old Packinghouse Café is a nearby restaurant where many locals go, so we thought we’d give it a try. A bit of a dive, no doubt. We arrived right at the restaurant opening for the day, 11am, hungry for lunch. There was plenty of staff, all friendly, and we ordered a Fish Reuben for Brad and the special-of-the-day chicken pot pie for Suzanne. A long time later, the meal finally arrived. Considering we were the only customers, we’re not sure why the meals took so long. Given that, the food was very good – Brad enjoyed his first-ever Fish Reuben and the chicken pot pie had huge pieces of chicken and a lovely crust. Along with two iced teas, the bill was $30, including tip. A bit expensive for a Sarasota local eatery, in our opinion, and the service could have been better, but potions were generous and food good. Will we go again, nah……probably not, but glad we tried it once.
Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!
