Treat Yourself for Making it Through the Week with a Lunch at Edwin Mills

What if there was a restaurant that offered a delicious lunch and a drink all for $12.00? Impossible, right? Not so because at Edwin Mills, on Thursdays and Fridays you can choose from a number of dishes and a large selection of libations and all it will cost you is a sawbuck and a couple of singles.

This is quality stuff, not leftover afterthoughts. The entrees are hearty meals of chicken, steak and fish, with fries, salad or rice on the side. And it’s not just a menu of sandwiches, there are stirfries and tacos and oodles of noodles.

As for the drinks you can choose from a wide assortment of martinis, bottled beer and well vodka, gin, rum, tequila and bourbon mixed drinks (of course there are soft drinks too). I highly recommend the martinis. I tasted three and loved them all. My companion and I ordered the Pomegranate martini and the Washington apple martini. I’ve got to say I liked them both but the Washington apple, which has whiskey instead of Vodka or Gin was the star of the show. We also went off menu and got the raspberry martini which was super good too.

Our entrees were the Old Time Burger and Salmon Burger. We had fries with the burger and salad with the salmon. The burger was cooked to our specifications and topped with a thick slice of cheddar cheese, grilled onions, tomato and greens with a zesty sauce. The burger was delicious, juicy with the right amount of char. The fries were skin-on with a crunchy exterior and fluffy interior, just like I like them.

The salmon burger was delicately seasoned with a topping of house made cole slaw, greens and a light dressing. The salmon taste really shined through in this burger. It was gently cooked and there was a refreshing taste of dill in the sauce.

It’s always a relief when Thursday rolls along because Friday is just a day away. Of course Friday is the pinnacle with a weekend in the future. Celebrate your Fridays and almost-Fridays with a delicious lunch and a drink, at Edwin Mills.
