A retired US Marine buddy of mine lives in Grove City Ohio and whenever Denise and I visit him and wife Judy we usually end up at a place in Grove City called Toledo's Mexican Kitchen
for at least one meal and drinks.
Not the fanciest place in the world but the food is good and the camaraderie fantastic. It is run by Darrell's buddy who is also ex Marine and he welcomes all branches of the service even those from outside the USA. (that's me) If you haven't been in the service you may not understand what all the back and forth is about but it is done with great respect, love and affection.
If you happen to be in or passing through the area, may I suggest you give it a try.
