Food Observations

A blog for eaters

Up the Hill Grill 

We recently ordered from My Orange Crate again and I have to say this service is a godsend! My time is of great value and to not have to drive into town for carry-out and deal with all the rigmarole, etc., is worth the modest delivery fee. When I ordered on a Friday night, the system quoted an estimate of 60 minutes. I had my food in 40 minutes!  We ordered from one of our favorite places, Up the Hill Grill. Gail got her usual “Mountain Man Burger” with onion rings (pictured below). I chose the “Chef Salad”.

According to their menu, the Chef Salad is made with turkey, ham, bacon, smoked cheddar, swiss, and a hard boiled egg on crisp greens with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, radishes & croutons (your choice of dressing).

First observation, there were no boiled eggs or croutons! Lettuce was one of these fancy, eclectic mixes that I liken to tissue paper. It was decent, but I think I would have preferred just good old iceberg and romaine! The “smoked cheddar & swiss” was more like an institutional pre-shredded Kraft Mexican cheese blend. Lastly, my dressing choice was not the best. I chose blue cheese, which did not hold up well in transit. While it was packaged in a separate, sealed container, it seemed to almost separate and become rather unappealing. I’d recommend an oil/vinegar type dressing if you choose to have this delivered. Part of the problem might have been that UTHG packaged the cold and hot food together in the same bag.
