(WMC-TV) - Curbside Casseroles, 5130 Wheelis Dr., has been on the Scorecard so many times for its quality and cleanliness, the place is practically its own TV segment.
Now the walk-up/drive-thru for gourmet casseroles, munchies, dishes and desserts has done what no other Shelby County full-service establishment or caterer has ever accomplished.
It just earned its fifth -- as in "Action News 5" -- perfect 100 on a health inspection.
"We have a great crew," said Curbside's owner Bradford Williams, "and we know that if we get a 100, we might get on Channel 5!"
Curbside Casseroles has been on Channel 5 four times already!
Yes, casseroles cooked fresh then frozen for pick-up are still its stock in trade. But it has expanded its menu to include gourmet soups, salads, sliders, pastas and tailgate packages (barbecue ribs, pork shoulder, cole slaw, etc.) on Saturdays.
"To have a wonderful place that's not only clean and healthy, but also delicious food...(we're) eating a lot better," said customer Tracie Hunt.
Curbside favorites you MUST buy: sweet pickles, "firecrackers," chicken salad, King Ranch Chicken, stuffed bell peppers, black bean & spinach enchiladas, signature strawberry cake.
