Meat Monsters Grill

April 1, 2020 – Kudos to A&S Catering and BBQ for being open at Meat Monsters Girl! Had an outstanding lunch today. Smoked beef shoulder sammich plus side for only $8. The beef was a little tough but had a remarkable smoked flavor and great bark. If you’ve never tried their bacon mac & cheese, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. It’s so good, you’re going to cry when you eat it! They’re open for takeout right now, every other day from noon to 7pm (or until they run out of food).

Texas Roadhouse

Back to that same Texas Roadhouse across from my hotel where I had that great grilled chicken salad. This time was the worst “prime rib” I’ve ever put in my mouth. That salad though with the boiled egg, etc. was outstanding. Not to mention the warm yeast rolls and soft butter from the get go. I could just eat a basket full of those.

The Butcher Shop

Excellent prime rib of beef at The Butcher Shop in San Diego! If you’ve never been, this is an old school, legit, classic Chicago-style steakhouse. The ambiance here is elegant, dark, intimate, etc. Rich dark wood paneling, red leather booths, gleaming brass appointments, beautifully etched glass panels and a cozy fireplace make this restaurant a must visit!

Chaps Pit Beef

While in Maryland, Lady FoodObs visited yet another Baltimore institution, Chaps Pit Beef! Featured on numerous TV food shows, including Diners, Drive-in’s & Dives. I definitely need to join her on that next trip!

Black Angus

Outstanding prime rib and wedge salad at Black Angus! Unfortunately the fire-grilled “jumbo” shrimp were anything but.

Iron Wok

Mediocre Mongolian Beef at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo. Will not be ordering this again.

Iron Wok

Outstanding Szechuan Beef at Iron Wok in Rancho Bernardo! Nicely balanced dish, although somewhat heavy handed on the celery. Perfect with a side of fried rice.

Casa de Pico

In business since 1971, Casa de Pico is a SoCal institution! Beginning in Old Town San Diego, they eventually moved to La Mesa in 2005. The atmosphere at their Grossmont Center location is simply stunning! Reminiscent of the spirit of their original Old Town location. It’s a fun, festive environment with vivid colors, hand-painted artwork, wrought iron chandeliers, etc. Food is outstanding, too! I enjoyed one of their signature dishes called “Senor Pico”. Beautifully grilled, thin-sliced carne asada with a taco and cheese enchilada.

Olive Garden

Outstanding new Braised Beef Bolognese with Zuppa Toscana at OG!

Atlas Market

Such an eye-watering international food court at the new Atlas Market in Poway, CA! I really enjoyed this outstanding chicken and beef kabob with basmati rice! Pizza is delicious as well!
