Great Eats in Chardon

Unread postby waborat » Thu Feb 05, 2009 11:02 am

Don't know how many of you get to Chardon that often , but for as small as this town is they have some excellent restaurants, such as:

Fine Italian- Sabastian's-On-The-Square...this is my favorite of all the places to go in the "Snow Capital"...small, romantic, great homemade food & excellent service every time...take your significant other and get a table by the window overlooking the square

Authentic Mexican- El Patron...ahhh, fresh ingredients, cold Mexican beer and everyone speaks Spanish so it has to be good...this place is always busy...try the roasted pork burritos & enchiladas, pure Heaven

Consistent Chinese- Yangtze's...take out or eat in, this place never disappoints...I swear they make the best duck and hot mustard I've ever tasted

Huge Omelets- New York Deli...my favorite for breakfast and you never leave hungry

Sport's Bar Hangouts- Hilltopper & Maxx Doogan's...great places to hang out and watch the games

Biker Bar Hangout- Hambden Country Inn...great place to eat cheap and get shit-faced

Steak House- Bass Lake Inn...perfect steaks, chops & wild game

We live in Concord, but usually find ourselves heading a couple miles south to eat at one of NEO's best kept secrets

So much for skipping lunch today. ;-) ;) :wink:

Never ate out in Chardon. Lived in Mentor for 10 years too. And played a lot of golf in Chardon over the years.

That's one of the only things I dislike about Twinsburg. We have a couple great restaurants in Blue Canyon and Bongiorno's. Beef O Bradys and Rocknes are great to take the kids to ... play games, drink beer, watch sports, eat fried food.

But no little mom and pop shops. I'd kill for one of those little authentic Mexican places where no one speaks english and the salsa is homemade.

Is there a Home Depot? You could probably find that in the parking lot near the lumber yard.

Swerb,

You ever go to Marcelita's in Hudson?

I live a few houses next to Chardon Square and here is what i think about those places....

Sebastians- very good. My sister worked there and brought home food. For a mom and pops place, its not bad at all.

Hambden Inn- Go at your own risk. Wouldnt doubt it if hell's angels meet up there, not a nice hangout. But when i have ordered takeout from there they have the absolute best burger ive ever had in my life. Its enormous, juicy, and paradise (thats what she said)

Chinese- Yantzee is a joke. Horrible food. Down the street is a place called The China House and they have Pepper Steak and Onions with pork fried rice to die for. Also, the best crab ragoon ive ever had.

Bass Lake-pricey, but very nice place to take your significant other.

Mexican-never been to that place. Ever since i tried Chipotle, i havent eaten any mexican from anywhere else. Not even taco bell. no joke

New York Deli- Great patty melts and ruebens. The breakfast isnt bad either.

You make it sound like mom & pop's are usually bad? Hmmm, I'll take them any day of the week over a chain

Been meaning to try China House and will have to soon ...surprised to hear you say that Y's food is horrible? Been going there for over 20 years and can't remember ever having a bad meal?

Sorry, I do enjoy Chipotle's "Nerf sized" food (except that 3/4's of it is filled with rice & corn), but you can't call that authentic Mexican chow either..."dee foood needs to have me sweat in it, senor"

Any other good stuff around that area that you recommend?

If you're gonna hit Chardon, drive the extra 20 minutes and eat at Ferrante's Wabs. Yes it's a winery, but the food is outstanding and reasonably priced.

The veal scallopini w/fresh spinach leaves, proscuitto and cannelini beans served with garlic mashed potatoes is $19. That's with bread and dipping oil and salad. Great ambience (like a ski chalet, fireplace, balcony with music, etc).

Make the trip. Your wife will love it and so will you.

And El Patron is great. Gets crowded on the weekends but the food is excellent.

Ugghhh.... I've had a couple interesting evenings there myself. One involved me cleaning out the passenger side map holder in the Explorer the next morning. Wasn't quite quick enough to get the door fully open and the head out of the car.

I'm not much into wine and that certainly didn't help.

You guys do that last year? We were at Grand River Winery on 528 in July or August last year for a surprise 40th when a bus-load emptied out. I'm sure it's a common thing but just wondering....

Edit to add: Grand River is nice in that they actually have Dortmunder Gold on tap. No chunking for me that evening. :thumb up:

DeBonne's is another fun spot and they now have their own brewery there

9:20ish - a Beer Brat at St Denis Golf Course - some delicious tender, sprinkle on some onions and Stadium Mustard
12ish - Cup of Gumbo soup, and then any of the following: Wings, Tater skins, Wolverine sandwich at Yopp's Timeout

Chardon doesnt have much, but the few places that they do have are pretty tasty. I just moved out of Chardon a couple of months ago, but apparently there is an amazing pizza place on the square. I'll probably give it a try in the near future when visiting my family.

Love Yopps. They have exceptionally good wings, and pretty fairly priced on Monday wing night. St Denis is a fun course too, pretty sure there is no sand last time i golfed there. Also, use to work at Legend Lake Golf Course down the street with Greg. Fun times during our youthful days.

Waborat.. starting in May, we are up there pretty much every Saturday from 11:30-1/2ish. They usually open at 12, but the one waitress comes in early since we have been going there for the last 5 years or so.

4th, A few traps... #1 right side of cart path about 220 from tee, #9 left and right side of green, and also right side of fairway about 200 from tee, #11 behind the green

The ole woman and I ate at the Mexican Joint there in Chardon today. The Mexican draft beer was most excellent. I asked the server what kind it was, but his english was weak, and my deciphering his version was weaker. I noticed that there was three domestic taps, and one tap with two XXs on it at the bar. I concluded that I was served Dos Equis. If it is that good in the bottle, I just found a new brand for the rotation.

The food was woody, and the service was woody also. The cheese cake burrito with ice cream, was major wood. We will be back, and with the kids in tow next time.

I have only been to one other Mexican joint, and that was one in Hudson, off 91. It was probably 10 years ago, but I didn't care much for it. With that said, I am not close to being a good judge of Mexican food quality. It was hot, it was fast, the plate was loaded, and there was no sticker shock at all.

I asked the server what kind it was, but his english was weak, and my deciphering his version was weaker. I noticed that there was three domestic taps, and one tap with two XXs on it at the bar. I concluded that I was served Dos Equis. If it is that good in the bottle, I just found a new brand for the rotation.

The food was woody, and the service was woody also. The cheese cake burrito with ice cream, was major wood. We will be back, and with the kids in tow next time.

I have only been to one other Mexican joint, and that was one in Hudson, off 91. It was probably 10 years ago, but I didn't care much for it. With that said, I am not close to being a good judge of Mexican food quality. It was hot, it was fast, the plate was loaded, and there was no sticker shock at all.


Yep, El Patron is one of the best Gringo places here in NEO...

Authentic tastes all around and like you said WA, the prices are reasonable...

Love the Dos Equis lager, not the amber so much...

Next time, try a Pacifico or Modelo in the bottle...magnifico
