Real hospitality is something you can’t fake. Some people have it, some people don’t.
The folks at TC Mae’s — a delightful little restaurant downtown — offer genuine, old-fashioned hospitality that lets you know this is a place where homemade food is as welcoming as the atmosphere.
“Come in, sit down. Let us bring you something good to eat!” A meal served with true hospitality nourishes the soul, as well as the body. And we were very well nourished at TC Mae’s.
It had been a warm, muggy day, so I opted for something light and cool — a chef salad. It was a flourish of fresh-picked freshness, and it tasted just as fresh as it looked. Slivers of sliced ham filled me up, while slices of hard-boiled eggs upped the protein factor.
My dining companion, meanwhile, wanted a more hearty fare and chose a fish sandwich and french fries, which I, of course, had to sample. Cooked to perfection, the fish and fries fed this working-man’s appetite.
We were already very happy with our meals when our host came to the table and said, “You got to try something.”
We had seen it on the board when we entered, but having no idea what it was, we really didn’t think about trying it. Well, trust me, next time we see “Rattlesnake Pasta” on the outside menu board, we’ll order a heaping helping.
With shrimp and Andouille sausage, “Rattle Snake Pasta” has a Cajun feel. We had the mild version, but we definitely want to try their kicked-up version with hot peppers next time around.
And speaking of the next time, the “Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich,” with two sausage patties, bacon, cheese, egg, hash browns and gravy is something my dining companion can’t wait to try.
TC Mae’s gave us a great experience in hospitality and delicious, unique foods you don’t find anywhere else.TC Mae’s
