ARLINGTON, TN -

(WMC-TV) - One's a charming tea room with a dreamingly slow pace.

The other's a friendly and efficient fast food joint.

Both make this East Shelby County town the proud parent of tying High Scores of the Week.

The Grapevine, 6284 Chester St. (http://www.grapevinetearoom.com/), and Subway, 11615 Highway 70, each earned a 99 on their December health inspections.

"We work hard as a team to give (our customers) the best effort that we have," said the Arlington Subway's General Manager Joseph McMillan.

The word "best" is not an exaggeration. 

Arlington's Subway earned Zagat's #1 Rating (www.zagat.com). The user-generated site is respected by foodies, critics and restaurateurs alike. Think of it as the "Oscar" of restaurant ratings.

"I come here, like, every day," said Arlington's Candice Welch. "Their food is amazing. It's a really great place to come."

"(The Zagat rating) is just a real good, positive thing," added McMillan. "With the health score and customers coming in every day -- the same people -- it shows us that we're really doing a good job here."

The Grapevine serves gourmet teas, sandwiches and desserts. It boasts a full-service bakery where owner Sherry Wooley crafts homemade pies, petit fours, butter and The Grapevine's Cookie Monster:  a skillet-sized chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and caramel.

The tea room's renowned for romantic Valentine's Day dinners and Mother's Day brunches. The staff puts on quarterly Murder Mystery dinner shows, too -- complete with actors and audience participation.

Customer Arielle Montague of Bartlett, TN, is content to just shop the tea sets in the gift shop after sampling a tasty panini.

"It's got ham, turkey, cheese, everything on it, really," she said. "It's really delicious!"
