The Don had an opportunity to enjoy what started out as an after work beer at the The Summit Tavern in Cumming, GA.

The Summit is a cross between a sports bar and one of those places that serves 20,000 different types of beer.  The Don is a rather simple beer drinker and after many hours on the job, is not a big fan of making complicated decisions on which type of beer to drink. I normally stick with a Miller Light, but I guess for some variety is a good thing.

We walked in around 5:30 and I was amused that the bar actually ran out of Bud Light, but the Don was enjoying himself with one of his good friends as well as some other men that frequented the establishment (ed note: I bet he did).  Then something strange happened..

All of a sudden , what I could only guess to be a shift change to the dinner crew, we were swamped with many bartenders. Hey, even the owner came out to cut up with us.  The Don always likes when the owner is present and mingles with the patrons.  This shows interest and customer service as well as a personal touch.

The owner was obviously from “up north”, another great sign in a restaurant, specifically Buffalo , NY.  Soon after pleasantries were exchanged, a literal smorgasbord of new menu items were delivered to us for our “expert opinion”.  What started out as a beer after work immediately turned into a buffet of “Man’s Food”.  What a great great array of delectable new sandwich items that were served: Meatball sandwich, Roast Beef Sandwich, Cuban Sandwich, Philly Cheese Steak, and Pittsburgh “Garbage” sandwich.  WOW!!

As you may recall the Don is a huge fan of Cuban Sandwiches, and many places just can’t seem to get the basic requirement correct which requires the bread to be “pressed or smashed” down .  The Summit nailed this!  The meatball and roast beef were unbelievable.  If they serve these items regularly , the Don is sure their great business will continue to impress.

So if you are ever up in the Cumming area, stop by this place.  Till Next Month…
