"Good 2 Go" Is A Retro Cool Place For Hot Summer Take-Out Dinners, Avon Connecticut

"Good 2 Go": Delicious Easy To Travel Meals Retro Style

It's too hot to cook.....so the way to get through this sizzling summer is to dash over to "Good to Go" and have Billy send you home with a great easy to serve take out summer meal. Billy calls his place "comfort food for a busy world".

Of course you know that I only write about places that are are retro cool with great food. And "Good 2 Go " is just that kind of place.

Visiting Old Avon Village

Located in the charming "Old Avon Village" of Avon, Connecticut, "Good To Go" is a cute little eatery decorated in 1950's style. This is quite a change for the Village which evolved from a old fashioned country styled shopping village years ago to a newer "updated" shopping center.

Getting Back That Neighborhood Feeling

"Good 2 Go" makes you feel like you are back in your neighborhood coffee shop, but kicked up a notch with today's version of retro. A slick but casual black and white tiled counter with red Formica and vintage decor make this place a comfy hang-out or adorable place to pick up take -out.

Try The Chopped Salad

My favorite light dinner is Billy's Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken. Other delicious easy to travel complete meals he makes which are quite good are Grilled Salmon, Stuffed Shells, Lasagna. Most of his entrees are large enough for two people.
