A Few of My Favorite Places to Eat


Schnitz Ada Grill

Where: 597 Ada Drive, Ada

Hours: Monday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Sunday Closed


Schnitz is right in the heart of downtown Ada, overlooking beautiful scenery. With a wonderful view, the place seems to swell with people of all ages. When walking into Schnitz, a staircase leads all the way up to a second floor where the restaurant is located; on the bottom level is a bike shop. Upon reaching the top, festive lights decorate the ceiling and candles upon every table warm the environment. During the day, the Schnitz shines with a phenomenal deli and a full-service bar. However, as the night descends on Schnitz, the deli is traded for a grill. The casual setting is exchanged for a more fine-dining environment. With world famous sandwiches, salads, and sides, the deli offers huge portions and great quality which is sure to please a majority of taste buds.


Peppino’s Sports Grille

Where: 1515 Eastport Dr, Grand Rapids, MI 49508

Hours: Monday -Saturday 11 a.m. – 1 a.m.

Peppino's Sports Grille

Peppino’s can’t even be compared to a traditional sports bar; it is completely amplified. Every table has a 20 inch TV right next to it on the wall, and if that isn’t enough, every single wall around the restaurant has a row of at least 80-inch TVs running longs them. Numerous games are playing, drinking is flowing food is being savored. Peppino’s was definitely one packed restaurant when I went on a Friday night, however, there was no wait for a table. We were immediately seated, ordered our burgers and drinks. The food was a juicy, savory heaven, the portions also were huge satisfying my hunger. With so a lot of people inside it was a bit overwhelming but worth it. Peppino’s has earned a title of a place definitely to check out.

Hungry for food, I walked into Potbelly eager to get my hands on a meaty sandwich. My friend kept repeatedly telling me to check out Potbelly but I couldn’t seem to bring myself to go, to suborn in my pickiness. Never had I ever thought that I would come to enjoy Potbelly as much as I do.  The distinctive feature of a Potbelly sandwich is a chewy, crunchy, piece of bread filled with an interior that is toasted along with the bread and then topped with your choice of accouterments. The layer of bread, though thin, remains pleasantly chewy and well toasted on the outside and holds up to the warm feeling inside. The crunch and smokiness are perfected to a masterpiece. The execution of accouterments to bread is carefully crafted every time. The entire atmosphere of the restaurant is completely welcoming. The look of woods and dark colors set the mood for a warm meal. Live music is sometimes held indoors for people which they munch on their food amplifying my love for Potbelly even more. I definitely recommend Potbelly; don’t be too stubborn to try new things. I’ve definitely learned my lesson.
