Tower Cafe provides quick service, quality food

If you ever come out of a performance at the Tower Theatre and are thoroughly famished, you may consider walking about one hundred yards down Olive Ave to The Tower Cafe. After walking up and down the main street for about thirty minutes looking for a local favorite, we finally chose to eat at this place, due to the tri-tip sandwich they were advertising out front.

When we walked in, the atmosphere was pretty inviting. It is right on the main street so it kind of gives you a feeling of retro dining. The man working the cash register was also very polite and non-judgmental for the excessive amount of food we ordered.

Our order was made around 7:30 p.m.. We ordered two chicken tacos for $3 each, a tri-tip sandwich for $6.89, and a plate of cheese fries with bacon for $5.50. To our surprise all the food was prepared and on our table within six minutes.

We began our meal with the chicken tacos. They were quite simple containing grilled chicken, cheese and pico de gallo in two corn tortillas. These were very good due to the seasoning used on the chicken.

Next we moved onto the tri-tip sandwich. When we first saw the sandwich, we did not really think it did the advertisement in the front window justice.

This sandwich, however, was surprisingly better than expected. Sometimes a concern for people and their food is the fact that the food is cold. This was definitely not the case here due to the fact that the meat was fresh off the grill.

The meat was piled on a sesame seed bun and covered in barbecue sauce. The only negative side we could find to the sandwich was the sauce. Usually when a restaurant claims to have “The best tri-tip sandwich around,” there is some uniqueness to there sauce. The sauce on our tri-tip sandwich tasted as if it were store bought.

Our final dish of the evening was the cheesy, bacon fries. Now, you really cannot go wrong with cheesy, bacon fries, but considering this is a critique, then we must find a bone to pick. Overall they were awesome, but they could have been better if they had real cheese instead of the cheese sauce.

The other customers in the restaurant looked pleased with their meals. We spoke with a customer about what she ordered.

She told us that she ordered the French Dip Sandwich and that she was enjoying the meal so far. The only thing she found wrong with the food was the cheese. The menu told her that order would come with swiss cheese and hers came with american cheese. Overall, the customer was pleased and guaranteed her return. She rated the restaurant a strong 3.5 out of 5.
