I happened upon Fancy That! Bistro one day when I was having a hard time finding a parking spot on Sumter Street. The restaurant is tucked away beside the Marriott Hotel at 1212 Hampton Street. “What’s this?” I says to meself (in mental Pirate talk), noticing a few people eating at outside tables. Hmmm. Starving, I ducked in for a little lunch. Fate and 3 quarters in the parking meter had brought me to Fancy That! Bistro.
The specials on Friday (they have two every weekday) are BBQ Pork and Mac n Cheese OR Fried Flounder and Raw Fries for $7.25. What’s not to like about them apples? The friendly staff took my order, and I went outside to enjoy a beautiful early spring day. Mine arrived – a large crunchy fish filet, flaky with just the right amount of breading and seasoning, and yummy raw fries… this has to be one of the best deals for lunch I’ve seen in a long time.
The lunch was AMAZING.
Here are there daily $7.25 specials:
Monday: Chicken Pot Pie & Side Salad OR Pork Tenderloin, Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Salad
Tuesday: Roast Beef, Roasted Potatoes & Green Beans OR Taco Tuesday (2) (chicken, beef or fish in flour tortilla) & One Side
Wednesday: House-made Lasagna, Side Salad & Garlic Bread OR Chicken Bog & Side Salad
Thursday: Hamburger Steak in Onion Gravy, Mashed Potatoes & Squash Casserole OR Grilled Chicken, Rice Pilaf & Corn
Friday: BBQ, Mac n Cheese & Baked Beans OR Fried Flounder & Raw Fries
I shared my lunch experience with my office comrades and more than one already knew about Fancy That!. They love it. Well, fancy that. Since then, I’ve become a huge fan. Delicious, always, and a lovely variety of fresh, homemade foods. Click here to view their entire lunch menu!
