Newk’s Eatery is a Southern restaurant chain that offers fresh food and trendy recipes. They are currently found in 13 different states. Newk’s is a fast casual restaurant with counter service. Their signature Round Table provides guests items to enhance their dining experience (parmesan cheese, Newk’s delicious breadsticks, oil, capers, bread and butter pickles, homemade croutons). I could not wait to try Newk’s, since my daughter used to work there.
On my visit to the Flowood, MS location, I was impressed with the restaurant’s curb appeal and the attention to detail in the decor and set-up. For instance, the drink station was placed in an area that flowed and did not get congested from other guests trying to use it. I also loved getting to visit the Round Table. What a cool idea!Newk’s Eatery prides themselves on making everything in house. Every day, meats are grilled and sliced, dressings are prepared, and countless batches of side items (Tippah County Caviar, Pasta Salad, Cole Slaw) are made at each Newk’s location. Virtually everything is homemade, which is something that you do not find most places. Their ingredients are fresh and you can definitely taste the difference.
For lunch, we opted for an Ahi Tuna Salad, the Soup and Sandwich combo, and an adult Grilled Cheese. All of our food was wonderful and came out looking picture perfect. My Veggie Club contained some of my favorite ingredients: goat cheese, pesto, mushrooms, and peppers. I like that Newk’s menu features a plethora of different items, such as pizzas, sandwiches, soups (changing daily), and salads. They even have seasonal menu offerings, giving you a chance to try new things.
Newk’s features a Grab-n-Go cooler full of take home items. The most popular is chicken salad, but they also have pimiento cheese, soups, slices of cake, salads, and sandwiches. This is a perfect option for those in a hurry or if you need a quick dish to take somewhere.
“We Cater…You Party” is Newk’s catering slogan and it is such a perfect fit. Their catering menu is extensive, offering virtually anything on the menu. Orders can be picked up in store or delivered locally. In the Mississippi area, Newk’s catering is extremely popular for football tailgates and office functions.
If you find yourself in an area that has a Newk’s, stop and eat there. The fresh quality ingredients will be well worth it. Be sure to try their Breadsticks, found on The Roundtable. Plus, they have awesome sweet tea; what is not to love?
