Bennigan’s: I’ve been going to these since I lived in FL and have loved their Monte Cristo sandwich ever since. We have one in Santa Clara by Great America; so I make it a point to eat there whenever we go.
Chilis: This is our random joint and is the most frequented place for my family and me. I tend to like the 1/2 sandwich and soup combo where I’ll take a cup of their chile combined with their turkey sandwich with some bacon on it.
Famous Dave’s: I love their brisket, but their chopped pork is good too. Lately, I’ve been doing salads there, which isn’t right for a BBQ joint.
Olive Garden: My favorite thing here is their salad and breadsticks.
Red Robin: Ahh… speckled lemonade and turkey burgers… what more can I say?
Subway: Love getting the veggie on honey oat bread or their turkey breast in salad.
Black Angus: Usually I get the salmon, but I do occasionally get their prime rim too. It’s all good 😉
Chevy’s: Had the fish tacos tonight. I can’t eat them anywhere else, but Chevy’s uses salmon and they just don’t taste fishy.
Bobby Van’s Steakhouse: If you ever make it to NY, go for their lemon pepper shrimp. I love this place when I travel there.
P.F. Chang’s: Their mongolian beef is quite good. But I just had their stir-fried spinach with garlic and it was pretty good. A lot of spinach, without much else. But it was still good.
Sbarro’s in most malls: It’s like those Jack in the Box tacos… not really sure what that greasy mess is, but holy cow it goes down well. Just slick stuff 🙂 But actually like their pasta salad.
My step mom’s: She just cooks very well. But her shortribs, when she makes them, are to die for.
My mother-in-law’s: Funny! She’s all Thai and cook everything but Thai. But I love it when she has a vegetable tray for me. I love veggies with a little salt. But everything else is good too. The only downside of doing dinner with her is that I can gain 10lbs per weekend. At least it feels that way.
