The expensive stuff that is NOT from concentrate and still has some of the pulp in. I like the pulp, it gives the screwdriver texture.

Welcome!

The gal and I are grads of UND. Just curious as I haven't been up there in a while but, is Grand Junction (the grilled sandwich restaurant) by the Ralph just across Gateway, in the small strip mall by Happy Harry's still around? We were thinking of going back up there at some point and that was a place we loved going so I was just curious. Thanks! Hope you enjoy your time around here.

Thanks everyone for the welcome. To answer your question this providence, I believe that the Grand Junction sandwich shop moved to the back of Gilly's bar downtown. I am more of a Red Pepper guy myself.

Thanks. I'll have to look into it if we do end up going.

Red Pepper was always a hit. My friends and I were big fans of Popolino's Buffalo Chicken Pizza as well.
