Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #42

A local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris always advised against buying Groupons to go to restaurants.  I have no idea why.  I’ve discovered SOOOOO many good restaurants through Groupon!  And what’s wrong with getting your food at a discount?  The restaurant put themselves on Groupon!  I didn’t.  I just always make sure to tip on… Continue reading Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #42

Swegs Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #41

I decided to eat healthy today and I heard this was the place to do it.  I heard right.  The first thing that impresses you when you walk in this place is how spotlessly clean, neat and well lit it is.  Even the restrooms are impressive!  The menu is loaded with healthy items to accommodate… Continue reading Swegs Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #41

Café 615, Home of Da Wabbit, Gretna, LA Report #40

Today was my birthday and my daughter treated me to dinner.  When she asked where I wanted to go Da Wabbit immediately came to mind.  Why?  I have no idea.  But Da Wabbit is always a great choice. This place dates back to 1949 when it was a drive-in.  It’s now a really good restaurant… Continue reading Café 615, Home of Da Wabbit, Gretna, LA Report #40

I… Continue reading August Moon, Harvey, LA Report #39

Newk’s Eatery, Mobile, AL Report #38

A Navy friend first introduced me to Newk’s years ago in Gulfport, Mississippi.  I had never heard of the place since there are none in New Orleans.  The nearest one to New Orleans is Baton Rouge, La.  There’s a bunch in Mississippi and lo and behold I found one in Alabama. This place is perfect… Continue reading Newk’s Eatery, Mobile, AL Report #38

Salute Italian Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #37

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Gulfport, MS.  That could be because it’s the only Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to there, but no matter.  It’s good. The place is located right on Hwy. 90, which runs along the beach on the Mississippi Gulf coast.  The first pic is the sign you’d notice if… Continue reading Salute Italian Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #37

Red Robin, Slidell, LA Report #36

This is one of my favorite burger places.  I wish we had one in New Orleans, but we don’t, so if I crave one of their burgers I have to drive across the lake to Slidell.  Since I was headed that way and had a free burger because my birthday is coming up I stopped… Continue reading Red Robin, Slidell, LA Report #36
