Munch Factory (#292, 3/14/14) – 68
I don’t venture out to the Lakefront too often, but had some business in the neighborhood, so worked in a lunch at The Munch Factory. While it’s a goofy name, it’s a pretty good place. Worth dropping in for lunch sometime.
They have a variety of small plates, salads and sandwiches for lunch, as well as shrimp and grits, which seems to be a very popular item there. I went for a grilled chicken sandwich with pepperjack cheese and it was quite good, though kind of messy. It started falling apart before I could eat it all. I had a tomato & basic salad as my side and that was quite good actually. I surprised myself by even ordering it, but a solid choice. With one visit for the food, I’ll give it a 32 out of 50 on food.
The service was very good. It’s not “freaky fast” or anything, but you should be able to get a lunch down in an hour. People were friendly and it wasn’t terribly busy. I’ll give it a 15 out of 20 in service.
The atmosphere was solid as well. It’s a pretty basic place, but clean and open. Nothing special, but no knocks on it either. I’ll give it a 21 out of 30 for atmosphere.
Final score = 68.
