I haven’t felt very well the last few days. Nothing serious. Just a summer cold. Probably had the air conditioning blowing on me too much while I was sleeping. Because of that, I wasn’t really in the mood to cook dinner. I looked through the freezer, the cupboards, the fridge…nothing looked good, so I told J I’d pick her up from work and we’d just go out.
I didn’t want to go to far from home and about the only thing that sounded good to me was a greasy burger. We seem to always drive by Sammy’s Lounge but we’ve never stopped. Since it’s fairly close to both J’s work and our home, I thought it would be a good choice.
Sammy’s Lounge is on Cedar Street in Holt just past the downtown area. The entrance is actually in the middle of the parking lot. They have a great outdoor bar and beer garden that you have to walk through in order to get inside. We headed inside where we ran into a hostess station. One of the waitresses saw us and showed us to a table in the non-smoking side of the restaurant.
The dining room is divided into two sections. It’s a bi-level space with the bar/smoking section on the higher section. The main dining room sits on the lower area. The decor is very old school. It looks like it hasn’t been updated since the place originally opened. There are green vinyl seat backs on the booths and the furniture is classic 70′s restaurant. The bar was the most interesting thing to me. It wasn’t a regular size bar. Instead of bar stools, they had what looked more like chairs that you would put around your kitchen table. The height was about half the height of a normal bar. Read the rest of this entry »
