Did you know that Old Ebbit Grill has an express counter? And if you did, why didn't you tell me!?
Ebbit Express is awesome. It is hidden away in the back of the restaurant and the entrance faces the lobby of an office building. The space is small but serves its purpose. It even has a window where you can pick up the orders you placed over the phone or online.
The prices here are fantastic for the kind of food and the amount of food you get, especially for a downtown establishment. The Beef Brisket Platter is $9.95 and it is a hearty portion of brisket, mashed potatoes with gravy, and green beans. The brisket had great flavor, was not too fatty and wasn't too dry. The mashed potatoes and green beans both were great. The green beans even had a good crunch to them.
The Pulled Pork Sandwich was $7.50 and was plenty for lunch. A co-worker mentioned that the bottom bun was a bit soggy but look at that all that BBQ pulled pork...
Ebbit Express is open Monday through Friday and has daily specials. You can place an online order here.
