On Sunday, November 17th, Fort Worth Yelp Elites spent a beautiful afternoon at The Lunch Box – a Fort Worth favorite that's been serving locals since 1974. The kitschy furniture, bright green and yellow decor, and open patio made for a sunny and cheerful atmosphere; the perfect place to spend a Sunday with friends!
Hashem D describes the fantastic lunch fare we were so grateful to receive: "an assortment of sandwiches – pimento cheese, egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, ham/cheese/avocado club, and Rueben's. Fantastic, all of them!" Plus, "delicious fruit salad" and "four mouth-wateringly good pies – chocolate silk, lemon, coconut, and the phenomenal peanut butter." Damon B was a huge fan of the pimento cheese: "Homemade and delicious. I want the recipe." And that gorgeous Spinach Salad? A "solid 5 stars!"
The event was topped off with some ever-incredible Deep Eddy Vodka! A make-your-own Bloody Mary bar and never-ending pitchers of screwdrivers guaranteed that Yelpers didn't leave thirsty, and The Lunch Box provided fresh mimosas for a little bubbly beverage fun. Tim L gives a "special shout out to Deep Eddy for supplying the beverages and the awesome collector mason jars." That's right, each Yelper left with a sweet Deep Eddy souvenir.
Allison V notes that The Lunch Box's "amazingly friendly" staff made sure everyone was well taken care of. The restaurant's owner, Imran, greeted each guest and told the history of the "cozy and inviting" Lunch Box. It was a sensational Sunday of classic sandwiches, desserts, cocktails, and conversation!
