Hole in the wall – Louie’s

Before even ordering,  my first impression is that this place is backwards.  They do not accept Visa or MasterCard,  only cash and American Express. I had to reread it to see if there was a punchline because I thought it was a joke.

The next thing I saw was that my favorite pizza topping, pepperoni,  is $3.00!!!! You make me pay cash at these prices?  I usually only have to hit the ATM before going out to a club….not a restaurant.

This place is definitely a “hole-in-the-wall”.

It’s quite loud and busy in here.  That gives me hope.  I hope the food lives up to “hole-in-the-wall” standards.

~~~~~Stay tuned~~~~~

UPDATE – The pepperoni pizza I had was fantastic. Is it worth $3 for pepperoni? I’m not so sure about that but the little pepperonis were crisp and tasty. It was a thin crust pizza, so thin that parts of the crust were black but that did not hinder the taste whatsoever. There was a bit of a wait since it’s made-to-order but it wasn’t too bad and they have several large widescreens to stare at while waiting. I dare say I could get addicted to the pizza as a lover of thin crust and pepperoni.

Jekyll & Hyde Transformation Salon

The Jekyll and Hyde Salon is a small, cute shop that you’d miss if you blinked when driving by.  But talent can be found in all size packages.  The owner, Jennifer Hyde, is extremely knowledgeable on all types of hair (including hair belonging to different races) and ways to keep it healthy.  I found the salon to be quite innovative with its transformational twists.  They do the typical things a salon does (hair, make-up, waxing) and more from scalp massages all the way down to ear candling.  the equipment is modern and upgraded.  The bowls you get your shampoos in are much more comfortable than most salons have at this time.

I listened to the owner spend a decent amount of time explaining to a young lady all the pros and cons of a complex hair style she wanted.  It was going to be a style that needed a specific type of maintenance to last.  She did not sugar coat the bad stuff.  She wanted to make sure this person knew what she was getting herself into before she spent the money and time to have this done.

The website says “Multicultural salon deliberately creating a stylishly outstanding and  unique transformational beauty experience for women and men.” and based on what I witnessed and have seen in their pamphlets, they definitely aim to make this statement true.

The shop is located in the Knox-Henderson / Lower Greenville area and they can be found on all of your favorite social media websites:  Twitter, Facebook, Yelp, LinkedIn, and Merchant Circle.
