Homemade meatloaf, mac n’ cheese and lasagna. Those are the three mainstays of a new
carry-out/dine-in business in Bowling Green.
Good to Go, 1220 W. Wooster St., is owned by Deb Weiser, of Bowling Green, a former
web designer for Bowling Green State University and ABC 13, Toledo, who decided
the area was in need of a homemade carry-out business.
"We kind of see ourselves as a service to the community because there isn’t
really a place you can get homemade foods to go," she said.
"We just want to make it easier for you to prepare a meal in any way,"
The meals are warm and ready to put on the table and serve after being picked up.
Weiser has established empty nesters who no longer want to cook much as part of the
business’s target market.

"They just want to get their kids something now to feed them that’s not fast
food or pizza."
Parents may have good intentions of cooking up a meatloaf or lasagna, but creating
such meals from scratch can be time-consuming and require a lot of ingredients.
"We just do all the heavy lifting for a family," Weiser said.

purchased from Belleville Market.

specials, and made to order dishes.
"You don’t have to call ahead, but it helps us if you do."
There are also cakes: like pineapple upside down, Vermont maple and Texas sheet. The
cakes are smaller and made for servings of four.
Examples of some of the business’s made-from-scratch appetizers include: bacon and
Gorgonzola stuffed dates, guacamole and spinach-artichoke dip.
For the summer, Good To Go also offers grill packages.
Customers can purchase potatoes or vegetable sides to go with steaks or chicken on
the grill, for example. The sides come wrapped in foil and the sauce is
"You just throw them on the grill for about 20 minutes," Weiser said.
While the business offers carry-out, patrons can also dine in.
Good To Go is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The business’s phone number is
(419) 378-3032. Reservations can also be made for weekend catering events.
