Comment: There was no better way to kick off Lent 2020 than with a heaping plate of bluegill for lunch at Toby's.
This bluegill is everything you imagne it to be. 10-12 teeny little fillets let you know it's legit, and a translucent breading that lets the subtle fishy flavor tak hold. It's immaculate really.
The hash browns with cheese and onion are as polarizing as they come thanks to the processed slice of American cheese that top them. Sure it stands out, but I for one like it...just let 'er melt and and stir it right in. For me it's the right cheese for the job, and while it is certainly processed and "not real cheese" it has a home here. I also find it intersting that if a place like Graze slaps porcessed cheese on their burger people go gaga, but if a supepr club throws it on potatoes it's a cop out...you really can't have it both ways.
Toby's tartar has the perfect consistency and flavor, and the slaw is a serious sugarbomb (as far as slaws go at least).
When you do lunch at Toby's a single serving of ice cream comes with the meal, and since Schoepp's is gone it's an individual cup o' Kemps (which i'm sure someone out there has beef with).
