Casa de Food Obs

Outstanding homemade panko crusted fried chicken cutlet with fettuccine alfredo.

The Kebab Shop

(Visited November 25, 2019) Outstanding “Carved Chicken” at TKS in Rancho Bernardo! Kind of like a shawarma. Unfortunately they didn’t have their cucumber salad so I got the Greek salad instead. Wasn’t very good. Hopefully it was just a fluke.


(Visited October 2019) As many of you know, mac & cheese is my favorite vegetable! When CFA came out with their homespun version I was all over it. I’ve tried many fast food varieties of this comfort food classic and they all pale in comparison. CFA mac is legit, that I can tell you! Their drive-thrus should be open right now during these trying times. Highly recommended.

Plaza Grill

Outstanding teriyaki chicken with steamed rice and mac salad at Barona Casino’s Plaza Grill! A classic Hawaiian dish that I’ve loved for years, I was glad to see them add it to the menu. Plaza Girl always has a thoughtful selection of delicious menu items ranging from lobster rolls, to burgers, to sushi. They’re adding new things regularly. I really enjoy dining here.

Raising Cane’s

Finally made it into Raising Cane’s in Santee! I ordered “The Box Combo”. Very tasty, although their slaw is no more remarkable than the Colonel’s. Everything else was, so that’s good. Especially their great house dipping sauces!

Jack in the Box

Fried chicken sandwiches appear to be a culinary phenomenon now, so I tried JIB’s version. I have to say, everything about this sammich was great, except the chicken. I loved the buttery bun, crispy and fresh lettuce & mater, mayonnaise slather, etc. Unfortunately the chicken itself was quite institutional. Clearly no match for Popeye’s or CFA, but those curly fries though!

Chili’s Grill & Bar

Outstanding Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad at Chili’s! Crispy chicken tossed in a spicy Buffalo sauce, bacon, blue cheese crumbles, pico de gallo, tortilla strips and house-made ranch dressing. I dearly adore salads that eat like a meal!

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Continuing to live life on the edge eating at Chipotle! This time I departed from my usual Barbacoa and opted for the chicken in my burrito bowl. Turned out very tasty at the 4S Ranch location.

Olive Garden

The Giant Chicken Parmigiana at OG was surprisingly good! Despite being such an obscene portion, I thought it tasted better than their normal everyday version.

Boll Weevil

The venerable “Boll Weevil Salad” at the Weev in Ramona! Romaine lettuce topped with blue cheese crumbles, real bacon bits, red onions, crunchy croutons & maters, served with balsamic vinaigrette. Add grilled chicken for $3 more and it’s an outstanding meal in itself!
