You should really check out this new place fast gourmet. I think they’ve been open about a month now. I walked by the gas station pretty much everyday without knowing there’s actually good food inside. I checked it out after reading about it online, and its really delicious, one of the best cuban sandwiches i’ve ever had. They also have rotisseree chicken, salads, and a pretty big menu for being in such an odd location. The owners are from south america and its clear they really care about the quality of the food they’re serving. They couldn’t be nicer, and I’m worried that business is really slow because of the odd location. I probably walked by it dozens of times without knowing what’s in there. Its also open 24 hours on friday and saturday. I’m not connected with them in any way, I just think its a shame that they don’t have much business since they’re such nice guys who do good work.”
We noted their opening back in August and I’ve been hearing great things about their food ever since. A friend of mine has been preaching their awesomeness for weeks to me. I stopped in on Sat. to snap some photos and indeed the folks were super nice. Also every patron had a gigantic smile on their face. I’ll be honest, I never would’ve guessed this would happen in a commercial space of a gas station. But mad props to them for pulling this off.
Their Web site says:
“You’ll find that not only do we serve high quality food but we’re an eco friendly business as well with our sustainable natural free trade coffee from around the world, natural fruit juices, organic bread and our environmentally friendly to-go containers. You’ll be glad to know that we don’t serve processed food.
