Even Better After New Management and Overhaul
Posted on 01 / 27 / 2013
Midway through last year McFosters was on the verge of going out of business. Due to some big fans of the restaurant they were given donations to help pay back taxes and stay afloat. New management took over as well. Along with new management came a complete overhaul of the interior- deep cleaning, new paint, new artwork.
My wife is vegetarian and I dabble, so we had been here plenty of times and always loved it. But with the overhaul McFosters is even better, Its brighter, cheerier inside, and the service is great! The new owners have revised the menu- reducing some of the greasier stuff (no more sour cream and chive fries, unfortunately), but also seemingly change up the daily specials a lot more. My wife's parents were sometimes hesitant to go here previously for various reasons, but they love it now.
On our last visit, Saturday Jan 19, I got the Tempeh Reuben which is awesome (even better than the Chicago Diner, if any reader has been there), my wife got the daily special which was a Portabello panini, and her parents got a Salmon dish, and the Greek salad. For non-veg eaters, her parents love the fish dishes McFosters has. For an appetizer we shared the Blue Corn Nachos which are always great- blue corn chips covered in sauteed veggies, beans, and either real or soy cheese. For dessert we shared a Peach Cobbler a la mode (Coconut Dream brand ice cream), the cobbler had cardamom and cumin which added a nice touch.
So if you haven't been to McFosters lately I highly recommend it!
Good mix of Veg and Non, Relaxing, Excellent portions- many half and full
Can be slow service if really busy
