SmokeEaters Pub…”FOODIE REPORT” with Roundhouse Ron

Nov 22, 2012
Photo_1If you have ever traveled up & down on Frankford Avenue in far NE Philly, you have notified several bar, taverns & restaurants along this well driven path. On the corner of Frankford Avenue & Sheffield Street, stands this bright stature of a building by the name of “SmokeEaters Pub”. You can’t go past this well established business without noticing all of the new & exciting changes. From the dazzling marquee signage, spacious parking lot & sleek contemporary outside seating, I just knew it was time for me to see what the new “SmokeEaters Pub” is all about.
As I walked into “SmokeEaters Pub”, it was so freakin obvious, this is no average neighborhood corner bar. The atmosphere was very eye pleasing with very cool lighting that made this place pop with excitement, not to mention the wide selection of cozy seating, from dining tables, to high tops or the large bar that is loaded with relaxing & very comfortable seats. Flat screen televisions cover this wonderland on every wall possible. While I was wondering around the tavern, I took notice to all the fun things to do here, such pool tables, dart boards, golf video machines & beer pong tables. It is like a cruise ship on dry land for adults (I freakin luv it). This state of the art WiFi hotspot also has a complete fully loaded lower level banquet room for private parties.
My dining posse & I were greeted by a very attractive & delightful woman named “Shannon”, as we discovered she was going to be our server for the evening. Due to my growing popularity with “Out On The Town” Entertainment Paper & OOTOnline.com, “Shannon” was prepared like a true professional with my cocktail (Jack Daniels & Diet Coke) in hand. It was so relaxing to sip on a finely mixed beverage as I was reading the all new “SmokeEaters Pub” menu. I would also like to give special thanks to “Billy da Bartender” for adding both a lemon & a lime to my refreshing cold cocktail. If you are a single young lady looking for a stud bartender to entertain you all night, then you got to hit “SmokeEaters Pub” & ask for “Billy da Bartender”. Some of the other very accomplished & efficient staff consists of “Dorothy”, “Lindsay”, “Erin”, “Luci”, “Heather”, “Brandon”, “Eric”, “Matt” & “Greg”.
The general manager “Brian Gunn” (boss man), has totally revamped this entire facility with an all new attitude towards customer service & making “SmokeEaters Pub” patron’s completely satisfied in every way. He has been working very closely with his 2 new culinary geniuses, “Chef Eric” & “Chef John” as they are all now hosting a new vibrant & flavorful menu with all made from scratch ingredients. The new menu definitely reflects both “Chef Eric” & “Chef John’s” appetite for bold & mouth watering recipes. I was very honored & got to have a sit down chat with “Chef Eric”, who is classically trained in southern cajun cuisine.
For my first selection, I just had to try the “French Onion Soup”. Now I don’t have to tell you all what is in a “French Onion Soup”, but I will tell you that this was freakin insane with freshly sliced caramelized onions, crispy baked crouton, melted mozzarella cheese along with a special family ingredient that “Chef Eric” will not reveal to me (I know what it is, but I swore not to tell). All this, including various spices were baked to perfection & then placed in front of me for my consumption. The soup was sensational as I finished it completely to the last caramelized onion drop.
Since I rolled up in “SmokeEaters Pub” strong with a posse of 3 friendz & myself, we decided to try both the “SmokeEaters Game Day Sampler” & the “Amazing Bowl Of Mussels”. The sampler was packed with a large variety of appetizers such as, “Beer Batter Onion Rings”, “Chicken Fingers”, “Mozzarella Sticks”, “Popcorn Shrimp” & “French Fries”. I really don’t know where to start, but it was all so damn delectable & a nice way to start off our meal. If I had to pick out 1 of these remarkable sampler items, the “Beer Batter Onion Rings” where freshly sliced with a light coating, which turned out perfect with a flaky & crispy crunch. And if you like mussels, you gotta try “SmokeEaters Pub’s” big bowl of mussels bathed in red or white wine sauce, butter & garlic steamed to excellence.
It was so focking hard for me to just choose just 1 entry from their scrumptious list of culinary delights, so they decided to indulge me in a freakin “SmokeEaters Pub” buffet. Let me begin with my 2 personal favorites as entrée items, the “Chicken Marsala” & the “Lemon Chicken”. Beginning with the “Chicken Marsala”, it was several pieces of moist chicken breasts grilled with awesome seasoning, the topped with a savory rich creamy sauce as sliced mushrooms where added. The “Lemon Chicken” was cooked perfectly in white wine, with peppers, onions & mushrooms, topped with light refreshing lemon zest flavor. Both of these items come with a nice proportion of “Penne Pasta” & come very highly recommended.
The entrée sampling continued with sum freakin amazing food, so if I may, please let me recommend a few items that you must try when hitting “SmokeEaters Pub”. You gotta remember all these items are now homemade & cooked with fresh ingredients to your perfection. “Philly Cheese Steak Nachos” are so damn yummy in a Philadelphia kinda way. “Mayfair Mega Double Burger” is 2 - 8oz fresh burgers, topped with 3 cheeses, bacon and onion rings all over a huge pile of French fries. “Surf & Turf Burger” comes topped with a humongous heaping of their famous lump crab meat. ““SmokeEaters Pub” Hot Wings” are treated in a light flour & seasoning mixture, then fried to complete supremacy & shaken with a homemade signature hot sauce. This foodie fantasy headquarters also carries over 13 varieties of “Quesadillas” that are so mouthwatering. I can’t continue, just get your butt over here & sample sum of these delectable items for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
Just like they tell me over @ “SmokeEaters Pub”, if you can think of it, then they will definitely make it for you to enjoy. The new refreshing attitude here is, “A customer today, is a customer for tomorrow”.

How can you go wrong with this amazing option for a freshly home cooked meal for just $9.95.
