On the Border

This was on their special menu. They called it the “Superior Dinner” I believe. It consisted of a cheese enchilada, chicken enchilada, beef taco (that split on the bottom), and a flauta.


Shrimp and Crawfish

At the Fish Company Restaurant at the Bass Pro Shops in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.


Rolled Tacos

At El Rodeo Mexican Food on El Cajon Blvd. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.



In Borrego Springs tonight. Sun is down and 107 degrees. This is a local dive bar & grill which was really good. Shown here a grinder with ham, salami, cheddar and swiss on fresh sourdough.


McChicken Sandwich

Pretty decent for just a buck…


Red Lobster

Dinner at Red Lobster tonight. Four course meal for $15.99. Included soup, salad, main dish and desert. Shown below are their legendary cheesy biscuits and my main choice (a chicken/shrimp thing).



Los Amigos Taco Shop

This is the taco shop just down the street from me, the one that only accepts cash. How quaint. I broke from tradition and got a taco. Sometimes I just like a taco, despite the spooging and cracking. Shown here with what they call a tamale. I don’t know why I thought a combination plate was a good idea from a taco shop. They’re typically only good for taquitos, burritos and what not.


Stromboli to go

This was from the little pizza dive down the road from home. First time I’ve had Stromboli I think. It was excellent! Filled with ham, salami, pepperoni, green peppers and cheeses with a little bit of sauce. Folded up in pizza dough, not like calzone, but over and on top of itself. I’ll be having this again…


Stone beer

My favorite microbrew is Stone Brewing Company, just down the hill in Escondido. This is their 9.4% Vertical Epic Ale. It is brewed with Anaheim Chilies and cinnamon. Fortunately I tasted neither…



So this was dinner tonight. A tremendous value. A half pound hamburger with an excellent brioche bun, freshly baked, fries and a domestic beer. All for nine dollars and change…
