"When we started, we were having cannellini beans drop shipped here,” Jones said. “We did a lot of things, but people just weren’t interested. Food Network and some of the other chef shows have really changed that.”
Now, not only do chefs have to be on top of their game, so do the servers, he said. That’s why everybody gets a constant refresher course on the food at Lottinvilles — because the customers demand it.
Which isn’t to say the food is out-of-reach for regular folks. It’s good food, cooked well, and even if you don’t have a gourmet palette, you’ll find something to love, Jones said.
House-made potato chips accompany a wide selection of delicious sandwiches, including a jalapeno cheeseburger ($10) and a piled-high Cuban ($9).
And for those looking for lighter fare, the restaurant has a fresh fish special every day and the cooks are encouraged to make food that is both irresistible and calorie-sensible.
Newly relocated from their classic log cabin to a gorgeous building at 801 Signal Ridge Dr., Jones said Lottinvilles is looking to build on a decade of success by put customers’ tastes at the forefront.
