New Mid-Day Mix-Up is a perfect match-up at Marie Callender’s Phillip Brents | Mon, Jun 09 2014 02:21 PM

Marie Callender’s new Mid-Day Mix-Ups have proven a hit with the lunch-time dining crowd, and it’s easy to understand why.

Customers can choose from several dining options and also choose how many items they desire, including a slice of one of the restaurant’s iconic pies.

“People love it,” general manager Audrey Kay explained. “It’s quick and it tastes good. They can choose the entrees they like and then choose one or two sides. It’s also one of the few offers we have that also includes a slice of pie. They’re also inexpensive.”

The Mid-Day Mix-Ups promotion runs Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Diners may select from six main entrée items and then choose an additional side or two additional sides. One of the sides can be a slice of one of the restaurant’s famous pies.

Two items (one entrée and one side) cost $6.99; three items (one entrée and two sides) cost $8.99.

Main entrée items include four cheese ravioli, half roasted turkey sandwich, half rosemary chicken sandwich, meatloaf sliders, half chicken waldorf salad sandwich and grilled veggie tacos.

The turkey sandwich features hard-carved turkey, tasty cranberry walnut cream cheese, lettuce and tomato on a wheat ciabatta.

Meatloaf may be an unusual selection for sliders but it works here. The two sliders are stacked with home-style meatloaf, port carmelized onions and sharp cheddar cheese.

Sides include a small garden salad, wedge salad with bleu cheese dressing, cup of classic soup, fresh potato chips, fries and slice of pie (excludes cheesecakes and seasonal fresh fruit pies).

By the time you get all the items together, it’s actually quite a feast — and quite filling for a mid-day meal.
Kay said popular pie choices remain lemon meringue, pumpkin and apple. Don’t be bashful to try the double cream blueberry or pecan.

Besides the pies, Marie Callender’s is also famous for its buttery-sweet cornbread.

Manager Mike Ortiz said the restaurant tries to accommodate the specific tastes of customers and also rewards customers with discounts. Senior discount cards are offered for 10 percent and 20 percent off meals while a 15 percent neighborhood discount card is also available.

The restaurant is also running an all-time favorite combo promotion, starting at $9.99. That offer also includes a slice of pie.

Marie Callender’s restaurant is located at 330 F St., Chula Vista. For more information, call (619) 420-0751 or visit the website at www.mariecallenders.com.
