Your's Truly Restaurant
 Medina, Ohio           Date of Visit  03/03/12  

This was our second visit to Your’s Truly in Medina. The first was for breakfast on the way to the fairgrounds. I had a Greek omelet which was stuffed with roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, spinach and feta cheese. Everything was well done and came with some crispy hashbrowns so we decided to go back and give them a shot for lunch.

Looking for some replacement wheels in Medina was the first opportunity we had. The interior is a mix of country home and raw industrial with printed wall paper and diamond plate living in something akin to harmony on the same walls.



The Notso Fries Looked Better Than They Turned Out To Be

Even well past the appointed lunch hour the place is still hopping with just a few tables open. The rainbow clad servers, each in their own hue are young but handle their jobs efficiently. When it comes down to it, when it comes to Your’s Truly, I think we’ll stick to breakfast.

Lunch wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t very good. We ordered something they call Notso fries as an appetizer, although everything came out together. The Notso’s are cottage fries with cheese, bacon and sour cream. The menu says they get their name because they are notso common. I would agree, the lack of any textural variety makes them substandard compared to other bacon, cheese, potato combos. The cottage fries were just shy of brown and mushy and however they hold the bacon, it had steamed some, eliminating the last chance of any hint of crunch. They didn’t taste off but its amazing how quickly the flavor gets cloying and boring without that dose of texture. On a side note, the fries come with sour cream and Steph reflexively ordered extra.

Maybe We Didn't Need the Extra Sour Cream

Soft But Not So Cheesy Mac

Burger Was Best But Far From Special

Slaw is "Homemade" But To No Noticeable Distinction

She likes the stuff on taters. The portions are more than sufficient at Your’s Truly, even the condiments. We wouldn’t have been able to finish the first bowl of sour cream. OOooops.

Steph ordered the hearty mac and cheese and I tried the special delivery burger. The mac and cheese was smooth and gooey and came with croutons and grilled chicken breast. Without the additions the mac would suffer from the same textural singularity as the fries. The chicken was done well but Steph discovered some flavor she found off-putting in the cheese sauce. I didn’t detect anything off but I didn’t get a load of cheesiness which has distinguished some excellent mac dishes from the herd.

The burger was good, done to the medium requested and was topped with Swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions and some sour cream. The burger over all was fine, if a little boring even with the toppings and was improved with a shot of other condiments. Breakfast was solid, lunch we didn’t finish. That’s why I think we’ll head here for just breakfast next time we are back in Medina and seeking nourishment.
