Dumpling Inn

Finally back in San Diego! First stop after the airport is my new favorite Chinese restaurant, Dumpling Inn. Chinese comfort cuisine since 1994. I just love the atmosphere, service and food here. I had an excellent Kung Pao Chicken with tasty wonton soup.


Outstanding hot biscuit & chicken at CFA in Del Sur, CA!

Texas Roadhouse

Just a short walk across the parking lot from my hotel was this Texas Roadhouse in Fairborn, OH. I wound up eating here a couple times since it was so convenient. Had an outstanding grilled chicken salad in their stunning bar area. Also enjoyed a couple draft IPAs. This is when I began noticing and observing that the salad dressing here is always served on the side for some reason. I had many salads while in Ohio and not one was pre-dressed.

Meat Monsters Grill

Excellent Panko crusted fried chicken sammich at MMG in Ramona! The chicken was perfectly cooked, moist, tender and hot. The panko crust was nicely seasoned and crispy. I don’t have to tell you how big and generous the size was. Just look at that beautiful photo. It was quite a bit to handle but I plowed through. Krinkle cut fries were hot & crispy. Remarkable meal at an affordable price.

Karl Strauss

Outstanding Boneless Buffalo Wings at Karl Strauss in 4S Ranch!


These little Crispy Chicken BLT things at Wendy’s are super tasty! Great alternative to a burger and really inexpensive.

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.
