There Will Be More Food Options

I live over by Jolly and Dunckel. We have limited options as far as restaurants go. We're not devoid of places but there aren't a lot and the variety isn't there. Most close up pretty early too.

They closed down and leveled the Burger King. We've still got a McDonald's, Ming Dynasty (Chinese), Leo's Lodge, Jersey Giant, Bigby, Subway, and Taco Bell.

Not bad. Not great.

The other day while getting coffee at Bigby, I noticed a sign in the empty storefront window. I do believe the last thing in there was a vape shop.

The other day I saw this.

Conrad's Con-Wraps?

A new food joint? Oh man. Time to do some digging.

There Will Be Grilled Wraps...and Tots

Conrad's Grill is a late night institution. Their food is fit more so for after your bar exploits.

A tortilla stuffed with grilled chicken, tater tots, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, sour cream and ranch: The Number One draws a feverish excitement to hungry late-night crowds, both familiar and unfamiliar with Conrad’s concept. (State News)

Mind you they make a mean breakfast version of their grilled wraps too. And I'm sure they do the trick for lunch. But be careful.

My first stop at Conrad’s, like others, is an enlightening story fueled by greasy delicious soul food meant to put you to sleep 10 minutes upon finishing it - whether it’s 3:30 p.m. after a noon Saturday kickoff or 2 a.m. during a study cram session. (State News)

As a matter of fact for my first visit at the original location on E. Grand River, while I was looking over the menu trying to decide what to order, I spied "The Dweeb" and was warned that I might not want to plan on doing anything else for the rest of the afternoon.

I ordered the O.G.C.T. and was not disappointed.

So this is coming to Jolly and Dunckel. With the fair amount of college kids that live in the area and the reputation Conrad's has, I think it will do very well.

Mind you this will make three Conrad's locations with only one open now. The original spot on E. Grand River.

The Frandor location got shut down after a grease fire late last year.

And after the pandemic, the unofficial word is they don't know when the Jolly and Dunckel location will open up.

Stay tuned and stay hungry.
