Founded right here in beautiful Indianapolis, MCL touts their homemade recipes of all your favorite comfort foods. This place is old school. Miss the food that your Midwestern grandma made? Well…they have it all right here! Cafeteria/a la carte style with great looking desserts. The menu that has a lot of daily specials and they are all online, so check it before you go. I get a chuckle that the menu is online considering the average age of their customer is 97 years old.
What I Ate:
Stuffed Chicken Breast $4.75
Mashed Potatoes & Gravy $1.55
Green Beans $1.55
With a drink, it is around $10.00 for the meal.
Chicken breast is loaded with stuffing and a little scoop of gravy over it. It was awesome. The chicken was fork tender and it was a nice sized serving for the money. It tasted like Thanksgiving in June! Mashed Potatoes & Gravy were strikingly similar to KFC, which is a good thing in my book. Green Beans didn’t provide any surprises.
My wife had an Chicken Bruschetta and Mac & Cheese as a side. The chicken was a little dry, so I would not get this again. Mac and Cheese was good for a cafeteria, but still not the yummy home made type like my grandma used to make. If you read my blog a lot, you know that Mexican is my favorite food, but Mac and Cheese is a close second. I admit, I am pretty picky about my Mac and Cheese.
Would I Buy It Again? Yes. Homemade old school favorites and you just can’t go wrong. I’ve never had a bad meal there. I just looked at the menu while doing the review and Cedar Plank Salmon, Chicken and Noodles, Beef Manhattan… yumm!
