50’s Prime Time Cafe

Let me start by saying that this was one of the funniest meals that we all shared. There was a whole lot of laughter and shenanigans going on and it wasn’t necessarily due to our server. Our server was great but I think he got a kick out of our group more than we did from him.
Our server, Cousin David, teased Hunter about being the only man with six woman. I think we told him that we were all Hunter’s sister wives. :lmao:
As is common here, we were asked to set our own table.  Emily took on this task…


She did a spectacular job right?

Then it was time to take a look at the menu…

Based on my last visit to Prime Time Café (March 2013), I knew exactly what I was going to order here. During that March visit I tried two things for the first time.

One of these was the…



Peanut Butter and Jelly Milk Shake – $5.59

I only ordered one of these for three of us to share in March because I didn’t think we would like it that much. Boy was I wrong…we all loved it! It was a huge hit! So I of course had to have this again, and this time I didn’t have to share. ;)

Here’s the recipe for this, in case you are interested.

50’s Prime Time Café Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake Ingredients:

* 4 ounce Peanut Butter
* 4 Ounce Grape Jelly
* 72 Ounces Vanilla Ice Cream
* 8 Ounces Milk
* 8 Ounces Pure Vanilla Extract

Place flavoring in blender. Add milk. Add ice cream. Blend until smooth and thick. Makes 4 Portions.

This looks like it would be very easy to make and trust me, it really is delicious! :cloud9:

In March, the three of us also shared the Sampler Platter. I had previously had both the meatloaf and pot roast and again thought they were both pretty good. But I discovered that the real winner on this platter is actually the…


Aunt Liz’s Golden Fried Chicken (white meat only) served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, chicken gravy and collard greens with bacon 

I again loved the chicken and the mashed potatoes & gravy were really good too. I even enjoyed the collard greens, which was probably because they tasted like bacon. ;)

Hunter, Paula, and Emily also enjoyed the Fried Chicken dinner here.

Vicki asked for the Pot Roast with the collard greens instead of the mashed potatoes.

Vicki said, “I had hoped for a plate of meat, collards, green beans & celery & carrots. As you can see, I got meat, potatoes and collards. I think I took Em’s collards as well so she didn’t get in trouble! Although not what I wanted, I truly loved my dinner and was glad they messed up my request.”


Brenda’s asked for a Kid’s size portion of the Pot Roast and Mashed Potatoes & Gravy (no photo available).  Brenda said, “It was delicious! It doesn’t look that appetizing from the photo but I can assure you it was good. Perhaps not as good as Liberty Tree Tavern since that version has big chunks of veggies, but it was worthy of ordering again in the future.”

As for Rachel, she ordered the sampler platter which included fried chicken, meatloaf, and pot roast plus green beans & carrots, mashed potatoes & gravy, and collard greens (no photo).


Rachel said, “I really loved the chicken, it was fresh, hot, crispy, and great! I liked the mashed potatoes too. The pot roast was ok, but not as good as Liberty Tree Tavern. The meatloaf was bad, it was lukewarm and just not pleasant.”


And that just leaves dessert.  You gotta love how the dessert menu is presented here…


I believe it was Hunter and Paula that ordered a 50’s Boston Cream Parfait with layers of vanilla cream (really more of a custard), chocolate fudge, and pound cake, but shared it with Vicki.  (no photo)

Vicki said, “I love Boston Cream anything so this was a perfect end to the meal.”

No room for dessert for me though, but the milk shake more than satisfied my sweet tooth. :thumbsup2
50’s Prime Time Cafe = Good service (even though we had to set our own table ;)), Good food, Good times!!
