Review: Newk's Eatery

The Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich is currently gripping the nation. The quality is very high and as an alternative to Chic-Fil-A, it’s only a plus. My aunt and I went to the local Popeye’s to taste test and it was packed. Unreasonably so. After 10 minutes of waiting in line, the cashier informs us the much sought after sandwich is sold out. The 10-15 cars in the drive-thru were also out of luck but wouldn’t find out till much later when they’re stuck in the funnel. I had no Plan B. Regroup! Enter Newk’s Eatery.

This is my second time here in the last few months or so. It not often disappointing, even though I’ve only gotten a few different items during my time at Newk’s. The Five Cheese Mac & Cheese is terrible. The first time I visited, I ordered a nice big salad which was chock full of greens, meat, and other vegetables. My aunt got the kid’s pizza. This is rather tiny but smelled great. I vowed to get it the next time I went.


Little Newk’s Pepperoni Pizza - While my hand was forced due to only having 700 or so calories left in my day, it was a pleasant situation. This pizza is rather small, but mighty tasty. The flavor is what a pepperoni pizza should taste like. Newk’s has all kinds of other pizza toppings. You needn’t waste time choosing. Now I can only imagine what the big one is like.
