As a Pasadena native, I have constantly recognized that Glory Days Grill on Ritchie Highway is a nearby preferred for sporting activities lovers. I didn’t realize what a fantastic preference it is when you want to catch up with friends, delight in meal with spouse and children, or even sneak away for a day night.
I frequented Glory Times with my family of five on a Sunday night all around 7:30pm. The cafe was fast paced but not slammed. We have been swiftly greeted and seated in a roomy picket booth. There is a massive bar for those additional fascinated in drinking and tons of seating for larger sized groups coming for meals. Televisions abound, largely turned to athletics channels. A few televisions also performed cartoons (which saved my youngsters occupied though we perused the menus) and the information. Our server, Haley, showed up by our table with a heat smile and an impressive information of the menu. She was capable to offer suggestions upon ask for and fill us in on the supporter favorites.
We began off with a 50 percent get of the “macho nachos” and a fifty percent order of the tacky fries. Haley also instructed the knockout shrimp. I have heard pals gush about the superb shrimp right before and was interested in seeking them. No one particular else in my family was intrigued, so I held off.
The macho nachos are a guaranteed group-pleaser. House-cooked tortilla chips had a crispy texture (much better than retail store-acquired by far). They were coated in a lot of toppings. Nacho cheese sauce dripped down just about just about every chip, which complimented the new diced tomato and lettuce – topped with a dollop of bitter product. There was no real spice listed here, but the nachos had been flavorful.
The cheesy fries had been excellent. The cheese is not a sauce, but instead melted shredded cheese. The fries are topped with completely cooked, chewy bacon and served with a aspect of ranch. Cheese, bacon and ranch produce a flawless flavor combo. The temperature and texture of the fries (a tiny softer than I’d like) made me imagine these fries sat on the warmer for just a minute far too extensive in advance of they arrived out. They were still satisfying, and my kids all but licked the plate when we concluded.
We made the decision on a range of Glory Days’ well-known goods for our entrees: rooster wings, a burger, a Cobb salad and cauliflower buffalo wings.
The hen wings were being almost great in each and every way. There was no downside. If you want great wings, head to Glory Times. The wings experienced moist, tender hen on the inside and crunchy pores and skin on the exterior. There were being a lot of each sauces we purchased (medium and scorching), which packed a wallop of flavor. In some cases taste can be overshadowed when there is a good deal of heat, but the balance here was wonderful. The wings have been generously sized, extremely filling and definitely delicious. It is worthy of noting you can purchase bone-in (which is what we did), boneless or grilled boneless.
If you like wings but you are not substantially of a meat-eater, you might get pleasure from the cauliflower wings. As well as, the cauliflower deducts the energy of the sauces, appropriate? I’m rather guaranteed that is how it works. No matter, tender cauliflower is encased in a crispy, flavorful breading and smothered in sauce to make a rooster wing-like expertise.
I experimented with the honey Aged Bay and Korean No. 2 – sweeter selections to stability out the warmth of the other wings. A lot of taste! The honey Aged Bay had that aged Maryland favored flavor mixed with a mouth watering, sweet sauce. As a lifelong Marylander, Previous Bay runs in my veins. I simply cannot help but appreciate it. The Korean No. 2 was related to a teriyaki with a awesome savory-sweet stability. Both equally are fantastic alternatives if you’re not mad about scorching sauces.
I purchased a basic burger on a gluten-free bun for my youthful son with Celiac disease. Haley was understanding of the meals limitation and promised that it would be managed separately. The team introduced it to the desk independently although sporting gloves, so I feel they held their promise. The burger experienced a traditional chargrilled style. It could have performed with far more seasoning. To be truthful, it may well have been lacking some seasoning due to the gluten issue.
I have heard a whole lot of good friends extol how amazing the burgers are at Glory Times. You are going to have to go to and test a burger to make your personal resolve on that. They have lots of interesting choices such as burgers with ribs, burger with onion straws, and burgers with fried eggs.
The 50 percent-Cobb salad was all the things you could want in this vibrant mixture. The lettuce was extremely contemporary and very well-chopped. The halved cherry tomatoes were being sweet and tart. The bacon was crispy. The egg and cheese well balanced it all out. Chunks of grilled white meat rooster were cooked nicely and seasoned with ranch dressing generously combined in. No problems right here – a superior salad.
Haley suggested the lava chocolate cake for dessert. She reported it was the restaurant’s most well known dessert. The cake was superior. It was super comfortable and crammed with heat, gooey chocolate. A generous scoop of vanilla ice product was included with drizzles of chocolate and raspberry throughout the full plate. It was pretty sweet – a lot more so than some other lava cakes I’ve experienced.
I would suggest the lava cake only if you have experienced a savory food. I had just completed the cauliflower wings before this. I couldn’t choose much more than a bite or two of all that sweetness, but my young ones demolished it and questioned for far more.
The invoice for the half buy of nachos, fifty percent get of fries, 12 wings, cauliflower wings, burger on a gluten-absolutely free bun, half Cobb salad, lava cake, an iced tea, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream arrived to $80 before idea.
It’s truly worth noting that the cafe has a extensive choice of beers and cocktails, but we did not drink that night.
Two final views:
- I really like that the cafe has 50 % and entire order options. This makes it less difficult to purchase many merchandise when you just can’t determine on what to get.
- This cafe is recognised domestically as a great area to go if you’re seeking for gluten-totally free solutions. It has gluten-free menus on each individual of the tables and specified fryers for the fries. Even my son with a serious gluten intolerance could enjoy a excellent night out with child-helpful solutions. The restaurant just can’t promise that every thing is gluten-totally free (no restaurant really can unless of course it is a committed facility), but the employees is careful and I was impressed.
Glory Times is a great choice for dinner. You are going to appreciate it regardless of whether or not you’re a athletics lover!
