They recently opened up a Newk’s out our way and I was interested in trying it. When you walk in you place your order and they give you a number to place on your table to which they bring your meal. I‘m a little 50/50 when it comes to changing their soups each day, because if you really like one you can’t come back tomorrow and get it you have to wait until they make it that day next week.
I ordered half Caesar $3.95 half corn crab chowder (spicy cream chowder is made with sweet corn, crab meat, onions, celery and green bell peppers) $3.75 The soup was amazing! Thick creamy and full of flavor I would love a huge bowl of this when I’m sick! The Caesar was good, I liked that they had a condiment area set up with extra croutons and parmesan cheese as well as peppers and bread sticks so you could add additional items to the dish.
D ordered a half of the Newk’s “Q” (Our signature white BBQ sauce, freshly grilled chicken, Applewood smoked bacon and imported Swiss cheese) and a cup chicken tortilla $8.25. The sandwich was a huge letdown it had the thinnest piece of chicken in it and more bread than anything. You just couldn’t taste anything. The soup was ok, but didn’t wow us at all.
Overall it’s a little over priced and I would probably rather go to Panera Bread or else where instead. I will give it another try or two just to be sure, but as of now I’m not a huge fan.
