Remember The Red Door Tavern on West Fifth Ave. near Grandview? The wife of the previous owner would get up very early in the morning to bake a variety of great pies. "Hey that's my pie!"

So here I come to the Tuesday edition of "On Restaurants" because I need to know what's going on with the various Lis Lessner restaurants. I need to know how my Jury Room gift certificates are doing. And today I get nothing of the sort??

Just a shame, it really is.

Back in the 1970's i worked for Mrs. Smith's Pie Co. in Columbus, Ohio
They would ship pies in from the main headquarters.
Then would be baked every day and delivered fresh to the restrauants. We deliver all around Columbus, Circleville, Chillicothe, Pataskla, Delaware and many other local cities.
The customers always thought they were eating homebaked pies. Mainly because they were so fresh.
Hope they are truely homebaked pies.

The best pie I've actually eaten here is more like a shepards' pie. But, it's made with rabbit. It's offered only during certain days of the month though, as rabbit is not easily attained. It's usually on the menu sometime after the Ohio Fair. Next time you stop by, ask if you can sample the hare pie. It's a specialty.
WOW! How did you get that post past the wizard of oz? Very funny, and your name too!

The Grill and Skillet is an awesome little place! Yea its a little older but the food is great. Homemade breakfast is way better than the chain slop. I stop every time I am out that way.

The Red Door is still there and open for business.

Still, no one can beat McDonalds for their hot apple and cherry McPies!

The filling up the tank with regular gas. None of that unleaded stuff for us!

Grill and Skillet is the sickist nastiest diner restaurant i have ever been to. I dont understand for the life of me how this place still is able to operate without being closed due to health violations. First off the restroom is in the kitchen awful disgusting rite. Secondly if you ever to dine in. Wipe the rim of your glass with your napkin. I personally guarantee there will be brown grime on the napkin. This place is the pits the health inspector is obviously paid off when he enters this establishment. The owner is a sleeze ball who hires drug addicts and prostitutes to run his DUMP! STAY AWAY!
Rodney,
This type of rant is exactly why you were beaten like a run-away slave.
Are you (or one of yours) a disgruntled ex employee turned downed for unemployment / comp / welfare ? It certainly appears so as your comments have a certain "air" about them
