My son had never been to Clifton Mill, and looking for cheap things to do over Spring Break, I decided to take him there for breakfast. We had a great table overlooking the gorge and grist mill. We were one of two tables in the restaurant.
I ordered a Reuben with a cup of Vegetable Soup, and Michael ordered the Banana Walnut Pancakes. My soup was slow in coming, and rest came very soon after, too soon. The soup was not good. It was V-8 juice and frozen mixed veggies. They need to… Continue

For the last night of restaurant week, we chose to go to Benham's. I had really been looking forward to the meal, because of so many good things I had heard from friends who had previously been employed by Benham's.
There were five of us in our party. We were seated right away, but it was quite some time before our server greeted us. She had a party of ten next to us, so we remained patient while she tended to them. We ordered drinks, and they along with the restaurant week appetizer… Continue

Mary and Mary used the Auntie Anne's and F.Y.E. coupons this weekend. They were thrilled with the deal they got at Auntie Anne's. For a total of 2.00, they both received a combo of pretzel sticks and a drink. Although I usually try to avoid the chains, Auntie Anne's is consistently good. Fat and carbs...where can you go wrong? :)
The girls had some birthday gifts to buy for friends, so they also used the F.Y.E. coupon to purchase some CD's. It was a 20% coupon, and that is always a… Continue

Mary and I went to Christopher's Restaurant at 2318 E Dorothy Lane, Kettering on Tuesday afternoon. Christopher's is usually an old stanby. Typically everything is made from real food and is fresh. This time though, I was disappointed. I blame myself for ordering badly. I had this Italian craving, and I ordered their lasagna. I was touted as having four cheeses and homemade pasta sauce. I am not sure which four cheeses they chose to use, but one had a very bitter taste, and the sauce was… Continue

Michael and I went to Carmel's day before yesterday. The place looks mostly the same since I worked there in the 1980's. While the menu has a few of same things, it is mostly different. Also, while pretty clean, it isn't spotless like it was when Vickie had it.
Michael ordered the Bronco Burger. It was hand pattied, not one of those hard frozen circles from Sysco. It had cheese, barbecue sauce, and onion rings on top. It came with fries which were not salted. This is one of my hugest… Continue

Michael, Maria and I went to the Root Beer Stande for dinner last night. maria had never been there, so it was a new experience for her. I ordered the footlong basket with onion rings, Michael had a double burger with fries, and Maria had the pork tenderloin with fries. We all had root beer in forsty mugs, which is the primary reason for going to the Root Beer Stande. All of the food items were frozen products, but it was decent junk food. The service was quick and friendly, but I think they… Continue

Michael, Mary, Maria and I decided to try Los Reyes for lunch, and it is my new favorite Mexican joint. We all chose lunch combinations except for Maria who had the chicken fajitas. Everything was delicious! The enchilada was cinnamon free, which made me happy. The service was very good and friendly. The restaurant was clean. Will definitely go back even without a coupon.

Mary, Michael and I used the coupon for Bosco's this evening. Most people I talk to rave about this place. My two prior visits had been dismal, but I was ready to try again. I figured I ordered badly, and since so many people like it, there must be something I will like.
Mary ordered a dinner special of Parmesan crusted Tilapia over pasta. Michael ordered Buffalo chicken tenders and fried. After careful consideration. I ordered an open face NY Strip sandwich, which they were out of.… Continue

Do the people at Taco Bell have something against me personally, or are they screwing up everyone else's orders as well. I feel like such an old fogey when I say this but.....back in my day, there was a higher standard. Taco Bell was my first job. It was 1982, and minimum wage was 3.35/hour. Everything was prepared fresh in the store. The letuce and cheese were shredded in a big Hobart machine. The beans were cooked in a giant pressure cooker and made smooth with a whip that attached to a Black… Continue

On Wednesday July 9, 2008, Dart brock and I decided to try Walnut Hills Tavern for lunch. It is located on Brown Street across from the Taco Bell, and I haven't been in the place since sometime in the late 1980's. Needless to say, it has improved for the better since then. I was very impressed with the menu. I was expecting fried food products probably purchased from Sysco. What I got was a quality meal at a reasonable price. The menu is large and offers a myriad of choices. The waiter was… Continue

I used the Entertainment coupon for W.O. Wright's yesterday. Michael ordered the 20 hot wings for 10.00. He chose all drums which added an extra 3.00 to his total. While Michael really likes their wings, I am not a huge fan. They are breaded, fried then sauced. I don't really care for breading on a Buffalo wing, and the sauce wasn't great. mary ordered the cheese fries. They seem to be handcut fries and were well seasoned and cheesy. I ordered the Chicken Strips with the hot garlic sauce and a… Continue

I just got an Entertainment Book in the mail for free (woohoo!). On Thursday June 26, 2008, we used two of the coupons. I used Burger King's buy one get one for a Whopper, and I also used the one for Carr's corner restaurant.
I went to the Burger King on Wilmington Pike. I have to say they are very friendly there. They actually speak to you and thank you for coming. Props to the staff. The food however is abysmal. I burped Whopper all day. Fast food sucks and should be… Continue
