Restaurant Review

Chef Larry Shore and his wife Sandy opened Ginny’s Kitchen as a tribute to Larry’s mom — replacing their former concept Twist Bistro — with the goal of bringing quality scratch-made comfort food inspired by loving generations of mothers everywhere. And they were generous enough to share a complimentary sampling of those inspirations with Stroll Cave Creek readers: Fried Green Tomatoes, the Sweet Home Alabama Burger, Ginny’s Famous Chicken Pot Pie, Dirty Shrimp Po’Boy, and Ginny’s Meatloaf. Here’s some of the guest feedback.
     Cynthia Young: My favorite dish was the meatloaf. It had a very rich deep flavor with superb texture and amazing sauce. The chicken pot pie was a close second.
     Trevor Young: My favorite dish was the meatloaf; it was outstanding! The flavors were rich, and the potatoes and succotash were a perfect complement. Honorable mention to the burger; it was really well seasoned.
     Pat Nauroth: The pot pie had great flavor, and it was presented well. The salad with it was very good also.
     Kathy Nauroth: I like the restaurant’s ambiance in general — casual but a little upscale.
     Susan Sheahan: It was nice to have a burger that actually had well-seasoned meat instead of relying on the other toppings. Great service, too — they noticed immediately when water glasses needed refilling.
     John Sheahan: The meatloaf was outstanding, and the salad dressing was the bomb. We also liked the event because we enjoy meeting new people and sharing the Arizona experience.
     Alison McIlroy: The pot pie was hearty and yummy; can’t wait to order it again. The ambiance was bright and spacious, and I enjoyed the sports being on TV in the background.
     Irene Donaldson: I loved the shrimp Po’Boy and thought the service was excellent.
     Ron Fink: The meatloaf was excellent, the wait staff was attentive, and I enjoyed meeting new people.
     David Crozier: The fried green tomatoes rocked! Crisp, tangy, and crunchy. It was great meeting new neighbors.
     Other menu items include Maryland crab cakes, made-to-order biscuits or cornbread, a variety of salads, tomato bisque soup, pot roast, salmon, shrimp and grits, a variety of po’boys, and beignets for dessert. Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan options are available. For drinks, you can enjoy local craft beers, California wines, hard lemonades, Kentucky bourbons, and moonshine.
     They are open for lunch and dinner and are conveniently located in the Summit shopping center — a great option for grabbing a bite to eat during your Target and other shopping errands. There’s patio dining, and the walls inside are adorned with the artwork that Sandy curates. Currently, the space features a selection from her Route 66 series of paintings.
    Thank you, Sandy and Larry, for connecting with the neighborhood and helping to build positive social connections in the community through this complimentary tasting.
