Clock Restaurant

Liver, onions big feature at this lunch stop

By Mike Sanford, GLOB Editor

CLOCKsf I am here to inform you that The Clock also satisfies any lunch cravings you might have for Homestyle Favorites (as it's called on their menu), including Hearty Homemade Meatloaf, Liver & Onions with Bacon(!), Grilled Pork Chops, and Spaghetti & Meatballs.

Liver and onions! I was sure that the only place I could find L&Os in GLOBland was the Picadilly Cafeteria on NW 13th St.

I had to have it. Like all the Clock's Home Style Favorites, my liver and onions was accompanied by a choice of soup or salad; potato, onion rings or rice pilaf; vegetable of the day; and a buttermilk biscuit or dinner roll. These menu items can also be found under Senior Specials at reduced prices and without the carb.

Swimming in memories of liver and onion dinners of the past while I was enjoying this nice lunch, I am sure my eyes glazed over and anyone who had noticed might have thought I was deep in thought rather than lost in nostalgia.

The Clock is a special place if you are into memories, times gone by such as the experience of how lunch used to served. Nothing fancy here. You will find friendly servers who I found were calling many of their customers by their first name.

This old fashioned lunch stop has it all. This could be why they call this place Clock Family Restaurants – something for anyone at anytime. That means breakfast all day, including Belgian waffles or steak and eggs because sometimes you just gotta have breakfast for lunch.

I don't think the Clock is trying to be a five star restaurant. I do know this long-time, established restaurant has a lot of faithful followers for a number of reasons -- like a complete separate section of senior specials for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; basic meals like chopped sirloin steak, meatloaf, seafood, country fried steak and "Classic Steaks"; and, more to the point here, a substantial list of various burgers, salads, regular sandwiches, open faced sandwiches, melts, and soup. Plus, might I suggest you give the liver and onions a try?  This old fashioned restaurant deserved a try if home sttye cooking is on your lunch agenda.

As my cardiologist would tell me, "Mike, all of these dishes are loaded with cholesterol," or as I like to call it, heart stopping good.
