Bowl of Comfort.

Posted By on Sat, Nov 7, 2009 at 9:13 AM


I haven't eaten everywhere in this county yet, but I do like to try new places.  So I poked on over to Crazee's Cool Cafe for lunch the other day.  Yes, it's one of those that allows smoking and doesn't allow anyone under 21.  Yes, it has pool tables.

But the lunch crowd I encountered were a friendly bunch -- filling most of the tables in the center of the room.  I came in, ordered the daily plate special, and watched.

There's a popcorn maker by the door that's apparently free to everyone.  A guy at the table next to me received the Half Pound Footlong Dog ($6.95) while I was waiting, and I momentarily lusted after it.  My waitress brought me an oversized cup of iced tea and I watched sports highlights.

The Daily Special ($8.25) was chicken spaghetti, and my plate contained a nice sized bowl of it along with a salad that contained tomatoes, lettuce and onions.  The Thousand Island dressing was pretty good.  The spaghetti?  Warmed me up and treated me like a lady.  I was very happy with it.

The other special offered any day at lunch is the Burger Special -- you can choose any of the burgers from the menu and it comes with fries and a drink for $7.50.  That includes hamburger, cheeseburger, BBQ burger with cheese and bacon, Mexican burger with jalapenos, Italian burger with Mozzarella and marinara and mushrooms, and Mushroom Swiss with, well, mushrooms and Swiss cheese. 

I like the fact that the price on the wall when I came in was what I paid -- the sales tax was already figured in.  No pennies to fiddle with.

Crazee's Cool Cafe is located at 7626 Cantrell Road, on the north side of the road west of Mississippi.  (501) 221-9696.
