Blue Sky smiling at me

It was a great lunch in downtown Augusta, Georgia today at Blue Sky Kitchen. Located at the corner of 10th and Broad, it is a great location just two blocks from the Savannah River. Today, I tried the Mojo Shrimp and Rice. Served with a little bit of asparagus and black beans, it was the perfect portion for lunch. They do have seating outside, but I dined inside and enjoyed the local art. The restaurant is locally owned and really gives a flavor and a feel you won’t get anywhere but Augusta. Another one of my favorites is the Redneck Stir-fry. Awesome. It includes rice, corn, butter bean, tomatoes and your choice of protein. It is fine without anything added, but I like to add the tilapia when I get it. But be hungry, it will fill you up. They even have a kids menu and highchairs, if you want to bring the family. No family with me today and was back to work in 45 minutes.

Lunch at Blue Sky Kitchen

One of my favorite local places to grab a quick lunch is Blue Sky Kitchen.  Located in downtown Augusta, this restaurant offers a variety of choices from Cuban sandwiches and Korean beef to their signature Redneck Stir Fry. I love that all of their food is always fresh! The last time I was there for lunch, I ordered a veggie sandwich that had avocados on it-well, they were out of avocados. They insisted that they run down to their other restaurant, Nacho Mama’s and get me some for my sandwich. I have always had great food and service when I go there! It is such a great place to sit outside and enjoy downtown on a nice day in Augusta.
