The female Foodie had a girl’s lunch today at Lee Roy Selmon’s on Boyscout Blvd. and wanted to do a quick post about it. I hadn’t been there in probably six years. I was quite pleased. Despite the fact that it was crowded, our server, Sara L., took good care of us. (She might’ve done too good of a job, given how much tea I drank since my glass was never empty !) Unlike some lunch servers I’ve had at other restaurants, she seemed to understand we all had to get back to work.
Our lunch orders were diverse. M had a shrimp salad ($8.99), K had the cedar plank salmon ($12.99), C had the sweet heat chicken ($8.49), and I had the grilled chicken breast ($8.99). The food came out quickly and at the right temperatures. My chicken was very good, moist, with a nice spice rub and a side of barbecue sauce. The chicken came with rice pilaf (a little too salty for me but I still ate it all!) and today’s vegetables (steamed squash, zucchini, and shredded carrots – actually not too overcooked, which was a surprise).
After our meal, our server brought out hot towels for our hands. Apparently, they’ve always done this but I had forgotten about it. It was a nice touch but actually caused one of the only blips in our experience: C’s towel was kind of dry and appeared to be dirty. One corner of it looked like it had barbecue sauce on it (which it probably just came into contact with in the kitchen, but still).
I was pleased to have such a good experience given that a new Selmon’s has just opened near the Foodies’ home. Selmon’s isn’t fine dining but is far superior to Chili’s, which is in the same price range.
