Pinto Thai

Outstanding Pad Thai at Pinto Thai in Ramona, CA!


La Cocina

Outstanding shrimp ranchero at La Cocina in Ramona, CA!

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Outstanding Seafood Fajita Fantastico at Nuevo Grill in Ramona, CA! Your choice of freshly grilled Wahoo, sautéed shrimps or Langostino lobster. Cooked to perfection with succulent peppers & onions; includes all the typical Mexican accoutrements and hot tortillas. The whole affair is served on one of those sizzling hot platter things that allows you to not only see and smell your food, but hear it as well!

Mariscos Mar de Cortez

Outstanding Camarones Rancheros at Mariscos Mar de Cortez! Sautéed shrimp with bell peppers and onions in a house ranchero sauce. Served with rice & beans; pico de gallo; a blob of guacamole; and hot, supple tortillas, $16.99.

The shrimps were tasty, meaty and succulent; cooked perfectly. Unfortunately the ratio of shrimps to everything else going on was pretty conservative. What I can tell you is the shrimps were of high quality. Not some frozen, farmed institutional variety from <insert name of Asian country here>! The ranchero sauce was the absolute standout! Among the best I’ve had. Super rich, flavorful and delicious. I sopped up every bit. It would have gone good on just about anything but ice cream.

Overall a great tasting dish, just not a good value at 17 bucks. Props though for the higher quality shrimp.

Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen

Outstanding Cajun surf & turf box thing at Popeye’s in Mira Mesa! So glad they’re not in Ramona otherwise I’d probably weigh 300 pounds. Seriously, one of the best fast food places around.

Olive Garden

A surprisingly delicious, relatively low calorie dish at Olive Garden! Linguine di Mare is made with whole grain pasta and a generous amount of mussels and shrimp. I’m usually pretty hard on the OG but this dish was outstanding.

Players Sports Bar

Outstanding jambalaya at Players in Poway! This place has some delicious, unique and reasonably priced dishes.

Red Lobster

Outstanding wood fire grilled salmon, lobster and shrimp at Red Lobster!

Babe’s BBQ & Brewhouse

One of my favorite restaurants in the Coachella Valley is Babe’s BBQ & Brewhouse in Rancho Mirage! Outstanding happy hour specials. Amazing southern fried shrimp appetizer and beef brisket!

Panda Express

Outstanding new five flavor shrimp thing at Panda Express! Also the best orange chicken and chow mein in Chinese fast food.
