Copeland’s, Harvey, LA Report #189

Al Copeland was the New Orleans restaurant entrepreneur who started Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuits in a New Orleans suburb back in 1972.  He started franchising them in 1976, and the rest is history.  In 1983, he decided to get a little fancier and opened Copeland’s.  Copeland’s also became a franchise and at it’s peak there… Continue reading Copeland’s, Harvey, LA Report #189

Fire Food & Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #184

I pass by this place several times a week and tonight I decided to pop in for dinner.  Nice looking place.  No lack of televisions if you want to catch your favorite sporting event.  Numerous dining rooms.  One was being used for a private party. Not a very long menu but a decent variety.  I… Continue reading Fire Food & Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #184

Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

The… Continue reading Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

  I normally wouldn’t review a national chain but I’m a serious burger lover.  That doesn’t mean I’d review joints like Burger King or McDonald’s, but just the special burger places, like Atomic Burger (Report #35), Desi Vegas (Report #1), Ground Patti (Report #13), Mooyah (Report #67), New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (Report #25), Red… Continue reading Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

Big Al’s Seafood And Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #75

I received an email from Groupon with their featured deals and Big Al’s Seafood was one.  I looked at the menu and some appetizer caught my eye, so I bought the Groupon and today headed to Big Al’s. This place is right on the Westbank Expressway, but tucked back off the street behind some automotive… Continue reading Big Al’s Seafood And Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #75
