Tip of the Week: $5 Mondays at J.S. Fields

For those looking for a good lunch or dinner at a discounted price, I recommend checking J.S. Fields Pub and Grille (18490 Ford Rd.) at the southern end of the Warrendale neighborhood on Mondays. Their $5 Monday special is back by popular demand, which means that most of their sandwiches, burgers, and other menu items are only $5 each on Monday.

The quality of the food and service at J.S. Fields Pub and Grille is also very good; much better than any other place with a $5 menu. Moreover, I'm not the only one who feels this way about them. Reviewers on Urbanspoon, for example, have given them 4 1/2 stars with 86% of users giving the place a thumbs up.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of their Reuben sandwich and any of their burgers. I've been there dozens of times and have always been thrilled with my experience - and that was when I was paying full price for my lunch. The $5 option just makes it that much better.

Oh, and after looking at some of the other reviews that are on-line, I feel a need to respond to two quick things. First, yes, the service at J.S. Fields Pub and Grilled is a tiny bit slower than most places (as in plan on an extra five minutes for lunch). Some reviewers on social media sites have made a big deal about it. Personally, I don't care. They have lots of televisions that you can watch the news or game on.

The reason, by the way, for your lunch to take an extra five minutes or so to get to you is that this a small restaurant. They only have one person to cover every table in the place. She is good at her job, but still human. In my opinion, again, this isn't much of an issue.

As for the one reviewer on Urbanspoon who complained about an inappropriately dressed waitress with a leopard-print bikini top and bootie shorts and how this reviewer walked out as soon as she saw that, well, I'm pretty sure that reviewer must have confused a random patron with a waitress. I've been going to J.S. Fields Pub and Grille since they opened. I have never seen anything like that at this place.

The $5 Monday menu at J.S. Fields Pub & Grille is your Warrendale Tip of the Week. It's really good food that is available at an amazing price.
