Scott Joseph Throws Monkey Wrench at NASCAR Sports Grille

Wow! Sentinel restaurant critic Scott Joseph was at his bitchy best as he did his worst on the recently reopened and renamed NASCAR Sports Grille at CityWalk.

The pit crew pulled pork and the Talledaga cheesy burger were neither good nor bad, they just were. My chicken and rib combo, however, had rubbery fowl and hard and chewy ribs. One of my companions had the strip steak, which was thin, overcooked and dry.

All of this was served by glum strangers who would appear at the table to ask, with perhaps a touch of surprise in their voices, if we had ordered the food they were carrying. Why are all these people so unhappy? Do the managers beat them?


I must say I’m a bit puzzled. I know the food is nothing to write home about (although Joseph and I agree that the onion rings are tasty), but the service I received on all my visits was never anything less than cheerful.

Off night?
