Restaurant Review: The new London Broil on Washington Avenue

Rees Roberts, a good friend of RacinePost, recently checked out a new restaurant in Racine called London Broil, located in the former Country Kitchen on Washington Avenue. Here's his review:
My wife and I had just spent our annual time with our trusted CPA to do our annual taxes. Once done we wanted to find something to eat. We drove out Washington Ave. to find someplace we haven’t been to in awhile. To our amazement we discovered someplace new. It is called London Broil Restaurant and is located on the North side of Washington Ave. on Prairie Drive. It’s easy to find.

We drove into the parking lot and went in. Something looked new and clean to this place. We were shown to our table and sat down. We had wondered why there were few people in the restaurant. One of the first questions I asked was “how long have you been around?” The response was “we opened today”. This certainly had never happened to us ever before but it certainly explained why so few people were in attendance.

We were given menus and given a reasonable time to look it over. Soon people were around us helping us with all of our needs. Everyone from the owner to our waitress were quick to find out if everything was good. They meant what they said. They were really trying to keep on top of their services to us. My wife noticed that her salad actually had been served frozen. The manager wanted to make that right and due to my wife not wanting another salad the manager gave us a choice of either money off the meal or a free desert.

We had a couple really tasty meals. I had baby liver with bacon and my wife had beef stew. We really enjoyed our meals and had to have doggy bags to take home with us. Portions were large and prices reasonable.

If you are looking for a new place to eat out why not try the London Broil. It is at 1158 Prairie Dr. off of Washington Ave. They also have a take-out menu and you can reach them at 262-886-6509.

By the way, we decided to take home desert in addition to our doggy bags of our meals. We recommend them and will be dining there again soon.

  1. What sort of restaurant is this? Liver and beef stew as menu options doesn't really make it clear. Is it like the Greek run restaurants in town similar to Dynasty perhaps? But with a name like "London Broil" I am confused. Was London Broil on the menu and is it their specialty? Is it a British food restaurant?

    Frozen salad doesn't sound too promising actually. Portion size and price are always good, but how about the quality and presentation of the food? All that's mentioned is that it was "tasty". A box of macaroni and cheese can be quite tasty too.

    With the economy the way it is I just thought, if you read between the lines, it would be good to tell folks that someone has the guts to start a business and wanted to make it a good experience for people. I have to hand it to them for making a difference. A number of people now have jobs and the area has a nice new place to go eat. That was the intent of my review.

    Anonymous... why not go there and see for yourself? No big deal, right? See ya there. Ummm, how do I know when I see ya? (grin)

  3. Not much of a review. Liver and frozen lettuce? Not what i want.

  4. I think it is great that you are covering/highlighting new businesses in the area, especially during these times. But, I think the point of the first comment (and my advice) would be to give a more detailed review of the restaurant if this is indeed supposed to be a "review" as it is labeled in the headline. I love the idea of adding a "review" feature to your paper.

  5. Well we ate there, good, fine, great. Seriously, check it out. They care. Frozen salad? simple adjustment of the thermostat, and, it happens in the best of restaurants at times.

    Check it out, we weren't disappointed in the least. Nice variety of menu. We had a burger on the run and it was super!

  13. My wife and I (both in our upper 50's) went there tonight with her folks. I was impressed, and not much impresses me these days. When I go to a new place I order a steak. If it's good I'll be back. I had the New York Strip. I'll be going back. I did miss not having a dessert included with the meal, but it's not something I really need.

  15. Not fair to remove a comment just because it wasn't in favor of the restaurant. I was not unfair.

  17. Well, I had your roast beef Manhattan open faced sandwhich .. the meat was horrible, plenty, but horrible, sorry.
    It was not like any roast beef Iv'e ever served, more like a processed lunch meat. I did not take any home when the waitress asked if I wanted it.
