I am a sucker for Mexican corn on the cob. So when I got to Standard, plopped down on the aluminum stools by a shallow bar overlooking the umbrella’d patio and saw grilled Mexican corn on the cob I figured the place couldn’t be bad.
My friend, an enthusiastic eater whose appetite surpasses even mine, and I dove right in, ordering a bratwurst, pulled pork sandwich, hush puppies, Mexican corn on the cob, a hot pretzel, birch beer and ginger ale (my favorite brand by the way, Blenheim). Not 20 minutes later our aluminum tray was a scattered graveyard of empty red and white checkered paper picnic baskets littered with hush puppy crumbs and stray bits of coleslaw andÂ sauerkraut. Â Um. I think we liked the food.
