Orange, Ca: Old Crow Smokehouse

Old Crow Smokehouse is a Chicago based barbecue restaurant. There’s 2 in Southern California: 1 in Huntington Beach, and 1 in Orange, just a stone’s throw away from the Honda Center.  We came here after we did the Paint the Ice event, and at 11:00 am, there were […]

Las Vegas: Wahlburgers

Wahlburgers is a Boston burger restaurant owned by chef Paul Wahlberg in partnership with two of his celebrity brothers Donnie and Mark.  There are 14 locations, but only 1 in Nevada… and this one is located in front of the Bally’s hotel and casino, in the shops and restaurants area. […]

Victorville, CA: Cracker Barrel

It’s a Cracker Barrel. You come here for the inexpensive, brown or yellow food. There’s not a whole lot of food that’s considered fresh and healthy. Even their green beans are cooked with bacon, and limp like a can.  The good part is I don’t have to drive […]

Fullerton: Pie Dog

Pie Dog is probably Stephen and my favorite burger place. I like this place for their burgers made with 1/2 rib eye, 1/2 sirloin patties.  I had the plain ol’ GI Joe, while Stephen had the My Cousin Vinnie, a burger with marinara and sausage. Stephen likes their […]

Escondido, CA: Stone Brewing

My friend Shellie did a indie-gogo type crowdfunding event that was a partnership beer with the Bruery in Placentia, CA (Orange County). The bottle was ready for pickup so we made our way down to Escondido to get it. If its your first time, use your GPS. There […]

Las Vegas: Gritz Café (@gritzcafe)

I’ve had this place bookmarked for the longest time.  They serve fried chicken, waffles and grits… sinful, comfort food.  The reviews on yelp said the place is tiny, a bit slow (as they cook to order) and terribly busy on weekends. For my visit, I came on a […]

Whittier: Original Pancake House 

Back from vacation, and it’s good to be back home.  For the most part, the UK has plenty of American comfort food, but there’s just some things I missed and American breakfast food is one of them. Being a bit jet-lagged, I was up early enough to beat […]

Irvine: California Fish Grill

WHAT? No Taco Tuesday at this location?? I wonder if this is a franchise and not owned by the corporation? Regardless, I came to the one located off Jamboree on a Tuesday evening and maybe it was good there’s no Taco Tuesday. The place was busy but not […]

Las Vegas: Brooklyn Bowl 

It’s been about 2 years since I was last at Brooklyn Bowl.  The last few times I tried going, they had a private party and canceled my reservations.  I had given up going here but I gave this place one more try on this visit.  Hurrah! I got […]

Buena Park : Rock & Brews

Food trumps service here. This could have been a great review if only the hostess wasn’t such a dimbulb. We made reservations at 5:00 on a Friday to celebrate my BFF’s son’s high school graduation. We asked to be seated in the left side of the restaurant, where […]

Santa Ana: Joe’s Place 

This little place is located across the street from the Central Courthouse from 6:30 am to 3:00 pm. It’s a grab and go kind of place, with a simple menu for sandwiches, pizza, and even a burger.  Think of it as a convenience store with a grill.   […]
