Piccadilly Summer Lunches




Disclaimer: I was provided the opportunity to have lunch at Piccadilly in order to facilitate this review. All opinions in this post are 100% my own. No other compensation was obtained. 

   When I was little from time to time we went to Piccadilly after church. I remember it being so special and even "fancy" because we didn't often have a ton of money to go out to eat. Now days I am not sure many people think of Piccadilly as being fancy- but I was excited when I got an email offering me the chance to try their new line of summer salads. I figured this would be an interesting visit. I was looking forward to comparing my old school memories to the "modern day" Piccadilly. I wondered what the restaurant was like now, how the food tasted, and if it would be like I remembered it from my childhood.



  Weston and I set out to have a little lunch date just the two of us. Our main missions? Trying the new line of summer salads and checking out the restaurant. I knew from the promotional information that the rep sent me that these salads include : Asian Chicken Pasta Salad, Italian Chicken Fettuccine Salad, Shrimp Rotini Salad, Chicken & Strawberry Salad, Taco Salad, Spinach and Citrus Salad, Blackened Chicken Wrap, Piccadilly Club Salad, Southwest Fiesta Chicken Salad. I had my heart set on the taco salad but when I went through the cafeteria line it was unavailable.  I decided to try the Italian Chicken Fettuccine Salad. While it was a fresh combo of lettuce, chicken, and fettuccine noodles I honestly don't think I would buy it again. It was good but not amazing. That being said you can't really beat a sit down meal with a large portion of salad for $6.29. You know what did make my heart beat faster? The darn fried okra that came with Weston's kids meal. Down right delicious. I was also excited to hear that if I had visited after 4pm I could have gotten Weston's meal for just 0.99.  Every kid’s meal comes with an entrĂ©e, two sides, a dessert, and a kid’s drink for only 0.99! That is impressive!! 



  The service at Piccadilly was impressive and very child friendly. A very nice lady took my tray from me and escorted me to my seat. Weston devoured his chocolate pudding and in the process wiped it just about everywhere he could. No one even gave me a second glance when I asked for second and  third helpings of napkins. The restaurant was fresh and clean. Fancy is not a word I would use to describe it at this point in my life but It was really a nice dining experience especially for someone that has a small child with them. Being that the restaurant is so kid friendly I think it's also wonderful that they are launching a new reading program, Back to Books, to encourage children to continue learning through the summer months. Kids will be given a reading log to record their summer reading. Once the reading log is complete with ten books they can receive a free kid’s meal. 



Have you ever been to Piccadilly? What did you think? Did you try the okra? If not you should!
