Best Takeout Counter (Grocery Division) - 2012
Straub's makes putting a balanced, hot meal on the table during the workweek incredibly easy. So easy, in fact, that the grocer's "Dinners for 2" are bagged up ahead of time, ensuring that you can literally grab and go with all manner of ease Monday through Friday. This special duo-dinner menu is published online each month, allowing busy folks the opportunity to plan what they'll be eating when they're not cooking. Supper on Monday may be eggplant Parm with salad and garlic bread, and dinner on Wednesday might be grilled petite beef tenders with risotto cakes and a Caesar salad — the menu switches things up every day, week and month, but the cost is always $18.99. And all you have to do is reheat! If you're dining solo or want to try something off-menu, Straub's premade to-go case is always full of savories and sweets of all kinds, from twice-baked potatoes to salads and soups, and from amazing grilled vegetables to tender barbecued, smoked and grilled meats.
