Twin City Grill, Bloomington, MN Report #99

  Continuing my travels through the great, white north, which happened to be just as hot as it was in New Orleans when I left, I ended up at the Mall of America.  A wondrous place.  Then hunger struck. This place was pretty good.  They start you off with some whipped butter and warm rolls,… Continue reading Twin City Grill, Bloomington, MN Report #99

Stockholm Pie & General Store, Stockholm, WI Report #98

  A blogger I follow, and a really great guy, mentioned this place months ago and raved about the pie.  I like pie, so I vowed to get here one day, and when I vow something I MEAN it!  So I ended up here in bustling Stockholm, Wisconsin.  Population 66.  And if everyone that was… Continue reading Stockholm Pie & General Store, Stockholm, WI Report #98

Tavern on Grand, St. Paul, MN Report #97

  Through no fault of my own I ended up in Minnesota and got hungry!  This place calls itself “Minnesota’s State Restaurant”, and features Walleye, which is supposed to be the state fish of Minnesota.  Me, being from the deep south and Walleye being a northern fish I had never eaten, I figured I’d give… Continue reading Tavern on Grand, St. Paul, MN Report #97

Gold Coast Dogs, Chicago, IL Report #96

I first visited Chicago maybe 30 years ago, and until then I had never had hotdogs with anything on them except mustard and chili. Then I had my first Chicago style hotdog. I was astounded. Tomatoes and little green peppers? On a hotdog? But I liked it! So when I saw this place changing planes… Continue reading Gold Coast Dogs, Chicago, IL Report #96

Lebanon’s Café, New Orleans, LA Report #95

  As far as I’m concerned this is THE place to go for Middle Eastern food in New Orleans.  I’ve been here numerous times and never had a bad meal.  Also, every time I’ve come here the joint was jumping, but somehow they always seem to have a table open.  I’ve never had to wait… Continue reading Lebanon’s Café, New Orleans, LA Report #95

Fharmacy Bar & Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #94

  I heard good things about the burgers at this place so it was high time I gave it a try.  The fact someone stole the “C” and “Y” off the side of the building doesn’t speak too well of the neighborhood it’s in, but I’ll risk anything for a good burger.  A couple Vietnamese… Continue reading Fharmacy Bar & Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #94

Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93

  In honor of Cinco De Mayo I had to eat some Tex-Mex food today!  My favorite place for that type of cuisine is El Paso (Report #9).  But on Cinco De Mayo, an illegal alien would have a better chance of getting into Trump Tower than I would have getting into that place.  It’s… Continue reading Los Panchos Mexican Food, Gretna, LA Report #93
