Mark Baldwin, the proprietor of Midtown Eats, has created a very special local restaurant. It is evident that a lot of time and care has been put into the creation of Midtown Eats. While it is located in a underutilized strip mall, don't let its looks fool you. The food is always fresh and the specials are constantly changing. The... More

We stopped by here for brunch and have now found a new brunch spot. The service was quick and friendly. I asked for bacon instead of eggs for my dish, preparing to pay extra, and they did it with no extra charge or fuss. When the food came, I was very surprised to find a huge pile of bacon. I... More

For the geocacher - there are several close by! I had wanted to try this a few days ago but got stopped by events and came a little after noon. There aren't a large number of seats, but all of the tables were either occupied or not cleared (only one of those) but there was a seat at the counter... More

First time at this place but not the last. They normally open at 11:00 so I was prepared to sit in the car for 20 minutes. As I approached the door I noticed they were open, the owner had decided on a whim to open for breakfast. My wife really enjoyed her breakfast sandwich and hash browns, I had the... More

Midtown Eats isn't much to look at from the parking lot. However, the appearance is deceiving. There isn't much room to sit, but the food is amazing! Plus the helpings are quite large. This is a great place to get lunch.

We just had lunch at Midtown Eats. The salmon wrap on special was amazing. Thai wrap and chicken sandwich were great. Not the food you expect in the strip mall (behind the Burger King) setting. they could easily charge twice as much in a downtown setting. Met the chef and sounds like a paella wrap may be coming soon -... More

Just got back from lunch at Midtown Eats. Amazing! Cozy place (8 tables-4 seats per). Friendly service. Welcoming chef! I had club wrap ($9) pork loin, chicken, lettuce, tomato, cheddar with a side of delicious dill potato salad. Hubby had cypress chicken wrap (great balsamic dressing, chicken, lettuce, olives, feta) $8 with a side of Asian slaw. We also sampled... More

Midtown Eats is a small diner. The food features original recipes, fresh local food and decent prices. Service is good, but waiting for food comes into play when the place gets really crowded. Chef Mark takes pride in each dish. You can't go wrong with burgers, summer wraps or shrimp BLT. The Ruben is classic. The Cuban is wonderful. Specials... More

What can I say, we would have never ate here if not for Trip Advisor and our GPS. It is a great find, my husband ordered the N'awlings burger and he loved it and the sauce that was on it. I ordered the special, some shrimp, gouda, bacon thing with an amazing sauce. We totally loved our dinning experience. The... More

As noted in other reviews, this is a local hole-in-the wall that is difficult to find, but is well worth the effort for a good, inexpensive meal. It's located in a strip mall behind a Burger King (much better burgers, though). The proprietors are quite friendly; I was a bit surprised at how few people were there but came in... More
