Those drive-thru places offer quick food but at what cost? Your health, your sanity?
Everyone knows that stuff isn’t good for you and barking your order through a speaker can’t be good for for your mental health. Oh, but the price is cheap and it’s quick.
Consider this, you can have food prepared by a chef for the same or less cost in an environment that will relax your mind and regenerate your spirit. And, you’ll be helping a non-profit that helps others.
Where is this place you ask? At 422 1/2 South Broad. It’s called Liberty’s Kitchen and is a NON-profit restaurant that provides jobs for at-risk youth. The food is prepared by Chef Reggie Davis and the price is right.
The downside? You have to go in and sit down. You get your food prepared and served by people who actually care about what you are eating, and you might spend a total of thirty minutes enjoying your meal. (more if you partake of the free wireless internet)
So, back away from the drive-thru and head on over to Liberty’s Kitchen at 422 South Broad near Tulane Avenue. Your physical and mental health will thank you.
