First Impressions: On A Rainy Monday…

Earlier today we put up a Glory Days Grill “12 New Menu Items” post.  It was just enough inspiration to get me to pay a visit to Glory Days on my lunch break.  I thought I’d share my first impressions of some of the new offerings.

Along with a friend, I was able to sample 3 of the 12 new menu items.  The Turkey BLT Sliders, The Pittsburgher and the Fresh Lemonade.

Turkey BLT Sliders, Sweet Potato Fries and Coleslaw

Turkey BLT Sliders - 4 sliders featuring tender roasted turkey topped with crispy bacon, fresh lettuce, tomato and pesto mayonnaise. $7.99

The Pittsburgher

The Pittsburgher - Tender corned beef and pastrami are grilled and topped with melted Swiss cheese, seasoned fries and our signature creamy coleslaw. Served on a freshly baked sesame seed roll. $9.49

 Overall, these were some great new additions to the Glory Days menu and I was way too stuffed to consider anything else.  The pesto mayo was a nice touch to the Turkey BLT Sliders and of course the pile of sweet potato fries is the perfect side item at Glory Days.  The Pittsburgher was sort of like the Primanti Sandwich from Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh, Pa.  Inside the sandwich was a hefty amount of corned beef, pastrami, coleslaw and seasoned french fries.  I’ve never been a big fan of pastrami but I must say, The Pittsburgher was delicious.  What a great lunch on a rainy day here on the East Coast.  The carb overload has me thinking it’s nap time.  All in a days work.

    Dude. Today sucked in MD. Great call on this one.

  2. I like the idea of the pesto sauce on the sliders, nice addition…..and sweet potato fries, nicely done.

    That’s a whole lotta meat on sangwich!

    Glad you got your eats in for the day.

    So how was the lemonade?

  3. Ryan says:

    Lemonade was really good. Very fresh and natural tasting. I usually don’t care for sugary/artificial lemonades so I was pleased.

  4. Reggie says:

    The Pittsburgher looks beast! coleslaw is definitely is underrated on sandwiches, people should do that more.

    I’ll be in the eastern panhandle of WV in two weeks (i was in Martinsburg last week) and will check out the Glory Days in Charles Town, WV.

    We have a drive in Beckley, WV that puts coleslaw on their burgers, King Tut’s Drive-In (closed Sunday’s and Wednesday’s- Why Christians have to eat too!?!)

    Yum http://forkyou.wordpress.com/2008/04/18/ate-like-a-prince-at-king-tuts-drive-in/

    Seriously, coleslaw automatically makes a sandwich a win. The only places I can think of getting stuff like that up here in NY are at the Jewish Deli’s which are always really expensive=(

    O.M.G. We live in a land of nothing but chain restaurants [it gets old, believe me] and although we consider Glory Days to be somewhat of a chain we ADORE our local G/Ds – service is always awesome, food is always quick/hot and delicious. It is really the only place we go anymore because all the other chains are indifferent, poor quality, dirty…pick one. [We loved another local chain called “That’s Amore” but they closed our location where we live and the next closest one is too far. bummer]

    Glory Days never fails to please us. Yum, yum, yum and I cannot believe I missed the Pittsburgher – I am trying to get Pooldad to go out and get me one now. 🙂 Must have.

    PS – Their take out is great too! They know exactly how to package it so it is hot/not soggy when you get it home.
