Hunger, like the migrating red crab, sometimes appears rudely unannounced and deep inside your stomach. Today's Groupon answers its unexpected house- or work-call: for $10, you get $20 worth of homemade eats at Short Stop Food to Go. Your Groupon is redeemable at either the Snider Plaza or Preston Forest Village location.
Short Stop Food to Go features a simplified selection of grabbable salads, sandwiches, and daily-made fresh casseroles. Break from a midday dominoes duel for a balsamic salad ($8) with grilled chicken, mozzarella, and tomatoes drizzled with balsamic dressing and nestled on a bed of crisp greens, or boost a beta-carotene-deprived body with a broccoli salad ($7) served with tuna or chicken salad. Customizable sandwich selections allow you to orchestrate a laudable lunch by pairing the filling with the bread of your choice and are offered in half portions ($5) or whole ($7), with the accompaniment of chips or carrots. Nab a scoop of the spicy Mexican tuna salad, loaded with cilantro, onions, and dried red-chili pepper and placed on a soft and fluffy croissant, or pile thin-sliced roast beef onto 12-grain bread for a simple sandwich qualified to satisfy even the most passionate fiber fan.
Short Stop's grab-and-go (or call-to-pre-order) homemade casseroles come in five sizes, ranging from individual portions ($5) to the 10-serving grande ($40), which is large enough to feed an entire squad of amateur arm wrestlers. Specialty sides such as the artichoke-bacon dip (starting at $5) or the twice-baked potatoes ($6) wonderfully fill the main meal's sidecar, and sweet treats such as the cheesecake brownies ($1.25) or lemon squares ($1.25) top off the feast like a convex meniscus.
Short Stop Food to Go has been carefully crafting home-inspired comestibles since 1995, when they captured and domesticated their first wild mom. Rely upon their years of experience and order a casserole ahead of time to suck the stress out of mealtime planning. It will free up some time to plan more important things, like setting the table. For a more impromptu bite, stop in and grab a sandwich to refuel after work or before a lengthy trip to the Dakotas.
- This has to be my favorite little shop! The chicken salad is the best. I love that you can have a good healthy lunch and then buy a healthy casserole for dinner. You just pop it in the microwave for a few minutes and you have yourself a great home cooked meal. – Eddie, Urbanspoon
- I've been going here for 2-3 years now and it's always consistent. The broccoli raisin salad with peanuts is unique and tasty. The portion is usually enough that I can have half for lunch and the other half for dinner...although sometimes I get greedy :). – Brooke G., Yelp
