This morning, June 18, I ate at Katie’s Grill and Bar on College Road in Wilmington.
I am now ashamed to say that I’ve been in Wilmington for 15 years and this was the first time that I tried it.
Katie’s is not a fancy place, so it’s not one you target on your big Friday or Saturday evenings. But it’s also across town from where I live, and so I’ve never bothered to pop in. The other thing they got going against them is directly across the street is Taste of Italy, which is one of Wilmington’s best local casual spots.
But anyway, I finally went today for breakfast, and I have to say, breakfast was just outstanding. The lady that was seating us just worked. Service was amazing. She was multitasking the entire time and managed to do the job of what would take three younger people.
While she was waiting on the various tables, she was a joy to behold. The food itself was excellent. I had a southwestern omelet that came with onions and spicy Mexican-style sauce on it. The eggs were not overcooked like so many omelets are. They were still slightly moist. And then the sour cream and the salsa, that was some sort of homemade. It was definitely not a store-bought salsa or just excellent. It came with lightly fried potatoes that were tasty, didn’t need seasoning. They came out of the kitchen tasting good, straight up.
And then since a biscuit came with it, I asked to try some of their sausage gravy. And the sausage gravy was also very good. It came with crumbled-up sausage in it, so it wasn’t just the gravy. I know some people complain about when there’s no chunks in it. This one definitely had some chunks, and both the biscuit and the gravy were well done.
I was just extremely pleased with the whole meal. Definitely will be trying Katie’s more in the future.
