Libby’s is now lizbby’s
For those of you who make regular treks to Philo, in hopes of eating those tasty enchiladas and chile rellenos at Libby’s, I have some sad news. Libby and her gang recently hung up their aprons and closed the restaurant. Good news is that they sold their place to a hard working family, who moved the establishment up the road to the old Boonville Saloon building and across from the Boonville post office. They’ve changed the name slightly, to, “Lizbby’s,” but fear not, it is the very same menu and recipes as the old place.
As a rite of pilgrimage, our family dined at “Lizbby’s” the first night it opened and we have gone there several times since. I can attest that the quality of the food is the just as good, if not better and the family members that run it are warm and welcoming. The atmosphere, while different than the old, Philo place, is certainly friendly, homey and clean. Their carnitas are still so tasty that they lure me out of my vegan habits and into that old omnivore world.
The Lizbby space is also bigger, with an attractive barroom…a cozy place to grab a cold, Negra Modelo. It feels a little empty in the tavern area right now, but that’s only because the patrons have not yet discovered it. It could make for a fabulous gathering spot for celebrations.
Take out is also available. There have been a couple of times when I had been shopping and running errands in, “Big Town,” all day and was worn out. So, instead of cooking dinner at home, I stopped into Lizbby’s for some Burritos to go. Quick, yummy, inexpensive and filling…the perfect ticket!
Stop by and grab a bite there. They’re closed on Sundays, but open the rest of the week.
