Up the hill and around the corner - off we go to Tina's!

Working downtown - some days lunch isn't always about what's going to taste the best or what I'm craving - but convenience. For me, Tina's is very convenient - it's about a 3 minute walk from where I work and it's busy but not so busy I can't get a table.

It's got an unassuming location on the corner of Central and 4th - across from Parker Flats and @5chw4r7z.

I started with the potato soup which I was told by the server is homemade by him every day! I feel horrible that I can't remember his name - but he was great. He was very educational about Tina's - he's related to the owner from what I remember. But the soups are all homemade every day by him.

The soup was creamy and thick and wonderful - I was very happy with it!

I had the ham & cheese on pretzel bread - which is one of their specials/signatures. It's a standard and nothing amazing - but I mean duh - it's ham & cheese. It is tasty and a definite comfort food.

My boss got the burger - you can get it with different kinds of cheese and it's actual cheese! Not processed slices! He did say the burger was overdone that day - not sure why - but not a great day for the burger. Usually it's a solid thing to order.

While I don't mind Tina's - it's never a place I choose. Not because it's bad - but I just haven't found something I LOVE. I try and get different things so I can find that thing - I just haven't yet.

If you haven't been and you're nearby - definitely check it out.

Tina's on Urbanspoon


  1. Cool!
    That's the first time someone has used me to give directions, awesome.
    For the record, its across the street and we hardly go in Tina's.
    I guess its too close.

  2. the food looks good, I'll have to try it sometime, my wife loves potato soup!

    on another matter, I think Cold Turkey closed :( ! I just tried going there for lunch today, and they had a sign stating as much. I hope it's just temporary, their cajun pretzles were awesome.

  3. Unfortunately it's not temporary - word is Cold Turkey is closed for good. :-(

  4. Urbanspoon says you "didn't like it" but based on what I've read above, I'd say they they're wrong.

    How many stars would you give it?

  5. I go back and forth. I kinda like it - I kinda don't. I mean - for the neighborhood - it's fine. But would I go out of the way to go - no.

    I gave it 2.75 stars...


    Anybody else have an opinion?
